Case – 21 January 2020

Kipster is trying to find an answer to the question of how we can feed the growing world population in an honest way, without passing the bill on to future generations and with respect for everything that lives. The founders of Kipster dream of a sustainable and healthy world where all people and animals can live with dignity. Kipster contributes to the realization of that dream.

Reduce the negative climate impact
To reduce Kipster's climate footprint as much as possible, the team is taking a number of sustainable steps. For example, they generate their own energy through the solar panels on the roofs of the Kipster stables. They also keep chickens that lay white eggs, instead of brown ones, because they convert feed more efficiently and therefore need less feed. In addition, the chickens are only fed with residual streams (with the exception of a small proportion of vitamins and minerals to complete the nutritional value of the feed). These residual flows have a lower carbon footprint and there is also no direct land use for their production. Finally, Kipster looks at the packaging material and uses a sustainable egg box made from potato starch, cellulose fibers and water.

A climate neutral egg
Kipster produces a climate neutral egg and strives for the lowest possible carbon footprint. By compensating the carbon emissions that Kipster cannot yet avoid, they can take the final step to make the eggs fully climate neutral.

Remaining carbon emissions compensated
After reducing the Kipster carbon footprint as much as possible, they look for alternatives to the remaining carbon emissions that cannot be avoided. Because Kipster wants to be able to compensate for emissions in the best possible way, they opt for carbon compensation projects that meet the highest standards.

We think it is important that the carbon compensation projects also think about the local population and the interests that they have in this.

With these compensation projects real impact is realized for the people who are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Kipster compensates from cradle-to-farmgate. So both the emissions from the own farm, as well as the energy consumption and the emissions that are released during previous steps such as feed production and the rearing of the hens and roosters. (scope 1, 2 and 3).
