Our roasting facility is solar powered & we’re proud to be a certified carbon neutral business…we even have the fancy certificate to prove it! Locale is part of the Carbon Reduction Institute’s zero carbon economy but it doesn’t end there. We’re constantly on the lookout for ways we can reduce our emissions too.

Since 2018, all of our products have been certified carbon neutral & in November of 2020 we received total carbon neutral certification of our business from top to bottom! Our products continue to be certified carbon neutral & both our coffee bags & tins carry the NoCo2 certification symbol.

that's cool, guys...but what does it mean?

It’s basically a fancy way of saying that for every greenhouse gas our business emits, we invest back into the environment. We purchase carbon credits from renewable energy sources around the world that offset our emissions. It’s really important to us that we’re resetting our climate change impact & ensuring our business is a force for good in the coffee community.

As well as the entire production of our coffee, the carbon offset program also covers things like; transport of our products interstate, staff travel, electricity usage…you name it!

We’re proud to be carbon neutral certified, while also recognising this isn’t a foolproof solution. We’re constantly reevaluating our processes & procedures to reduce our emissions in any way we can.

projects we support.

Last year, we purchased our carbon credits from the China Wind Project which provides a renewable, clean energy source for power generation. It aims to reduce China’s carbon footprint & helping them to get closer to their emissions reductions targets. By reducing harmful pollutants in the atmosphere, the China Wind Project also provides public health & local environmental benefits, economic aid through increased investment in renewable energy sources & by creating more employment opportunities.

Climate change is a fact & as a business who profits off the Earth’s resources, we’re proud to be doing what we can to minimise our impact. We hope to see more businesses follow suit!
