Kipster tries to find an answer to the question of how we can feed the growing world population in a fair way, without passing on the bill to future generations and with respect for all living things. The founders of Kipster dream of a sustainable and healthy world, where all people and animals can live with dignity. Kipster contributes to making that dream come true.

Reducing negative climate impact

To reduce Kipster’s climate footprint as much as possible, the team is taking a number of sustainable steps. They generate their own energy via the solar panels on the roofs of the Kipster stables. They also keep chickens that lay white eggs instead of brown, because they convert feed more efficiently and therefore require less feed. The chickens are also fed exclusively with residual flows (except for a small portion of vitamins and minerals to complete the nutritional value of the feed). These residual flows have a lower CO2 footprint and there is no direct land use for their production. Finally, Kipster looks at the packaging material and uses a sustainable egg carton, made from potato starch, cellulose fibers and water.

A climate-neutral egg

Kipster makes a climate-neutral egg and strives for the lowest possible CO2 footprint. By compensating for the CO2 emissions that Kipster cannot yet avoid, they can take the final step towards making the eggs completely climate neutral.

Compensate for residual CO2 emissions

After reducing Kipster’s CO2 footprint as much as possible, they look for alternatives for the remaining CO2 emissions that cannot be avoided. Because Kipster wants to compensate for emissions in the best possible way, they choose CO2 compensation projects that meet the highest standards.

“We think it is important that CO2 compensation projects also take into account the local population and the interests they have in this.”

These compensation projects achieve real impact for the people most vulnerable to the consequences of climate change. Kipster compensates from cradle-to-farmgate. This means both the emissions from your own farm, as well as the energy consumption and the emissions released during previous steps such as feed production and the rearing of the hens and roosters.
