Scottish coffee roaster achieves gold standard for carbon neutrality
Scotland-based Matthew Algie has become the world’s first coffee roastery to achieve the Carbon Neutral Gold Standard.
Working with One Carbon World, Matthew Algie verified its carbon footprint methodology and results, and offset its emissions by purchasing certified credits from a tree planting project in Uruguay and a wind energy project in India. As a result, it is the first roastery in the world to achieve the Carbon Neutral Gold Standard. One Carbon World is an initiative which aims to reduce climate change and assists organisations in achieving carbon neutrality over the next four years.
As part of its commitment to net zero emissions, Matthew Algie has also joined the UN Climate Neutral Now Initiative. Launched in 2015, this scheme aims to encourage and support all levels of society to take climate action to achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century, as set out in the Paris Agreement.
