As part of the climate change aspect of its sustainability plan, FloraLife began examining the carbon footprint of its products, starting with its FloraLife® Express Clear ULTRA 200 storage and transport concentrated treatment. FloraLife’s sustainability initiative is the division’s long-term plan targeted for 2025 that implements the reduce, re-use, recycle and respect principles in the areas of climate change, water stewardship, product portfolio, sustainable packaging, and stakeholder awareness.
To conduct the assessment, FloraLife partnered with Carbon Footprint Ltd., a leading company specializing in carbon emission assessments, environmental strategy and planning, carbon and energy reduction and carbon offsetting.
Because of its concentrated formula, FloraLife® Express Clear ULTRA 200 requires less packaging, less volume and less transporting, resulting in an overall lower carbon footprint. However, to continue to support the carbon footprint reduction, FloraLife is offsetting the remainder through its involvement in a reforestation and deforestation reduction project by planting trees in Kenya and protecting the Amazon Rainforest, a program that Carbon Footprint Ltd leads.
In April 2021, through the partnership with Carbon Footprint Ltd., Floralife was able to create the Industry’s first carbon neutral storage and transport treatment solution. This is an exciting achievement, and Floralife hopes to continue to drive progress towards a more sustainable future.
