EMISSIONS REDUCTION

THE FACTS

  • According to the UN, emissions must fall by 25% before 2030 to keep global temperature increases within 2°cz by 2100
  • Global emissions are still increasing. With current policies we are heading for a 3.7 degree Celsius increase by 2100.

OUR BLUEPRINT COMMITMENT

We are committed to minimising the emissions produced in the way we grow, manufacture and distribute our products.

WHAT WE ARE DOING...

Measuring the Footprint of our business

We are working with the Carbon Trust to map out our supply chain and create a calculator with which we can continuously measure our emissions.

Developing longer life products

We are looking at developing a range of new longer-life products that don't rely on airfreight. This will help us to reduce both emissions and waste.

Exploring new ideas for logistics

We are exploring exciting new technologies that could change how we transport our products to market in the future.

Developing Emissions Reduction Plans

We are forming task forces to look at ways we can reduce our emissions by saving energy and maximising the efficiency of our factories.

THE NUMBERS...

2.98

Kg Co2e per kg for Blue Skies airfreighted prepared fruit from Ghana*

3.40

Kg Co2e per kg for same products made in Europe using sea-freighted fruit*

*based on a 2008 report. This was carried out by an external organisation however it was not third-party verified. We are now in the process of updating our emissions data to give us more up-to-date information.
