did you know 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 carbon output too.

since 2018, all of products have been certified carbon neutral & in November of 2020 we received total carbon neutral certification of our entire business from top to bottom! we offset all of our emissions by purchasing carbon credits from renewable energy programs around the world. our products continue to be certified carbon neutral & both our coffee bags & tins carry the NoCo2 certification icon.

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

it’s basically a fancy way of saying that for every greenhouse gas we emit, we invest back into programs that create renewable energy sources. it’s really important to us that we’re resetting our climate change impact & ensuring our business isn’t adding to the problem.

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!

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 & helps to achieve 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 & creating more employment opportunities.

climate change is a fact & we’re proud to be doing what we can to minimise our impact. we hope to see more businesses follow suit!
