Carbon footprint

You​ ​can’t​ ​manage​ ​it​ ​if​ ​you​ ​don’t​ ​measure​ ​it!​ ​We​ ​measured​ ​our​ ​organizational​ ​carbon​ ​footprint based​ ​on​ ​14/15​ ​figures​ ​and​ ​can​ ​readily​ ​see​ ​our​ ​areas​ ​of​ ​greatest​ ​impact.​

Our​ ​comprehensive footprint​ ​tool​ ​will​ ​enable​ ​us​ ​to​ ​measure​ ​and​ ​report​ ​on​ ​our​ ​impacts​ ​every​ ​year,​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​achieve our​ ​​Forever​ ​Chocolate​​ ​commitment to become carbon and forest positive by 2025.

​As​ ​you​ ​can​ ​see in the following graph of our footprint (2014/15),​ land​ ​use​ ​change​ ​is​ ​by​ ​far​ ​our​ ​biggest​ ​impact -​ ​this​ ​is​ ​related​ ​to​ ​the​ ​land​ ​converted​ ​from​ ​previously​ ​forested​ ​space​ ​to​ ​the​ ​farmland​ ​used​ ​today​ ​to deliver​ ​our​ ​agricultural​ ​raw​ ​materials.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​also​ ​see​ ​above,​ ​that​ ​our​ ​second​ ​biggest​ ​impact comes​ ​from​ ​dairy.​ ​So​ ​we​ ​will​ ​work​ ​with​ ​our​ ​suppliers​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​carbon​ ​reducing practices​ ​are​ ​part​ ​of​ ​their​ ​sustainability​ ​plans.
