WE ARE CARBON NEUTRAL!
Thank you for changing the world with an ecological and sustainable diet
Why you should choose De la Conca: tasty, healthy and sustainable products
Climate change endangers natural ecosystems, as well as economic and social development, and the health and well-being of humanity. The food industry is one of the sectors that contributes the most to climate change and at the same time is harmed by its effects. For this reason, it is very important that we act to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and build resilient and sustainable supply chains.
As an individual, the consumer increasingly has the power to decide the environmental impact of their actions and the personal carbon footprint associated with them. This is by choosing the products you eat and the diet you follow. That is why there is a growing demand for a conscious and environmentally responsible market.
At De la Conca we actively contribute to the creation of a circular and low-carbon economy, where our mission is to face the climate emergency through tasty, healthy and sustainable food. For this reason, we have integrated sustainability into the design and development of our products with the aim of reducing their environmental impact and offsetting their carbon footprint, while offering the consumer who is committed to the planet a rich, healthy and maximum product quality.
The ecodesign actions carried out include the use of local, certified organic and plant-based ingredients; the elimination of plastics; and the use of recycled materials, which are also compostable or recyclable.
This 2020 we have reached the goal that all our products are carbon neutral.
What is the carbon footprint and how do we calculate it at De la Conca?
The carbon footprint is the amount of GHG that is emitted into the atmosphere directly or indirectly during the life cycle of a product (cultivation, transformation, transport, use and end of use). The carbon footprint is expressed in tons of CO2 equivalent.
At De la Conca we analyze through our Life Cycle Analysis tool, called “TerraMater”, the carbon footprint of our products at all stages of the life cycle; that is, from obtaining raw materials to managing waste at the end of its useful life.
How are we Carbon Neutral?
At De la Conca we want to be an active part in achieving the global climate action goals and for this reason we have opted for mitigating and offsetting our emissions. Through the application of ecodesign, we reduce the environmental impact as much as possible, and we compensate the emissions that we cannot reduce by collaborating in reforestation projects, generation of renewable energies, energy efficiency and protection of biodiversity. In addition, we collaborate with organizations like Plant-for-the-Planet that fight climate change.
In this way, we achieve our goal of being Carbon Neutral by having zero net GHG emissions associated with the life cycle of all our products.
By choosing De la Conca you are not only consuming a tasty and healthy product, but you are also helping to combat climate change.
In 2021, let’s continue eating the carbon footprint together!
We are committed to organic, local and socially responsible food production
