Sustainability | Climate Neutral
Climate change goes hand in hand with habitat destruction as a primary cause of bee decline. That’s why Project Hive is operating as a climate-neutral organization for Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon neutral means that we’ve addressed every aspect of our business that emits greenhouse gases through 3 main steps:
- Measure. First, we make sure to measure how much carbon is emitted. Even with sustainably-sourced products, it’s inevitable that carbon emissions are released in the life cycle of a product.
- Reduce. We use our measurements to constantly find new ways to reduce our carbon footprint—such as sourcing local materials, using less packaging, or utilizing more efficient transportation.
- Off-set. Finally, we are looking into the best alternatives to invest in 3rd-party-verified carbon offset projects. Organized by non-profits, these projects are designed to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
As Project Hive grows, we can simultaneously improve the sustainability of our business model, invest more in carbon sequestration projects, and support the livelihood of bees!
