Carbon Neutral Program
Being environmentally conscious has always been a focus at Georgette Packaging. We've also heard from countless customers about the importance of prioritizing eco-friendly packaging options. Now, we've decided to double down on our environmental efforts by making absolutely all of the packaging we produce fully carbon neutral. Based on our research, we're the first Canadian packaging company to go completely carbon neutral.
What does this mean?
Simply put, this means we are purchasing carbon offsets to neutralize the emissions created by our packaging. Carbon offsetting works to compensate for the carbon emissions created by an activity such as transportation, agriculture, or manufacturing. Most carbon programs operate in one of two ways: they provide funding to projects that reduce CO2 emissions, or they support tree planting efforts.
Of course, not every carbon offset is created equal. (You can learn more about that right here). We're aiming to focus on projects that are transparent, efficient, and trustworthy by partnering with Pachama, a fellow Y Combinator-backed carbon credit provider developing the world's first carbon offsetting marketplace.
