CO2 Correct

CO2 Correct

CO2 Correct, together with FairClimateFund, provides accessible CO2 compensation for the fruit and vegetable sector. Social entrepreneurship was something that CO2 Correct founder Stephan Schneider learned from an early age. Partly for this reason, the partnership with FairClimateFund was established. FairClimateFund’s Fairtrade projects do more for people and nature. That is why this is a natural combination for CO2 correct.

CO2 Correct makes sustainability accessible to the fruit and vegetable sector

Many organizations in the fruit and vegetable sector would like to focus more on sustainability, but often discover that gaining the right insights is a complicated and expensive process. In addition, the fruit and vegetable sector is under heavy pressure when we look at the discussion about unnecessary use of plastic. As a result, wrong choices are sometimes made by switching to unnecessarily expensive alternative packaging that is often no better for the environment. CO2 Correct wants to provide these insights to companies and make it clear that a product can be sold ‘CO2 Correct’ in stores for a fraction of these costs.

CO2 Correct has devised a unique approach to this that gives companies quick insight into the carbon footprint of the products within their range. From this CO2-corrected starting point, CO2 Correct takes its members to feasible but effective sustainability steps that are partly obtained from the insights provided. In addition, CO2 Correct motivates companies to CO2 compensation. As a result, the affiliated companies are taking the first big step towards a sustainable future.

CO2 Correct & FairClimateFund

In its search for a reliable partner for CO2 compensation, CO2 Correct came into contact with FairClimateFund. The shared vision that sustainability should above all go hand in hand with an honest message to consumers was very appealing to CO2 Correct. In addition, CO2 Correct is very grateful for the involvement and advice of FairClimateFund in the development of this new initiative.

Clean cooking with biogas

The first project that CO2 Correct supports is the FairClimateFund biogas project in India. The project that provides farming families in India with biogas installations fits in perfectly with the members of CO2 Correct who also import fruit from these regions. The ultimate goal for CO2 Correct is to set up similar projects together with FairClimateFund in other parts of the world where a lot of fruit and vegetables are grown. This so that CO2 Correct members can correct their impact on the place where the products come from.
