VAHDAM® IS A CLIMATE NEUTRAL BRAND.
We measure our carbon footprint from the farms in India to our customers' doorsteps, globally. We then make carbon offsets via our investments in renewable energy & energy efficiency initiatives in India. Certified by Climate Neutral, a not-for-profit based in the United States.
Climate Change is Real and it’s here. It affects us all and it’s time we all become a part of the solution.
OUR PLANET. OUR RESPONSIBILITY
At Vahdam, our innovative supply chain sources teas directly from the farming estates and is devoid of unnecessary middlemen. This helps in considerably minimizing our carbon footprint.
However, we are also cognizant that we build a substantial footprint in getting the product from the gardens to your table, vis-à-vis our delivery operations and other stakeholders. We understand & acknowledge the responsibility to offset the carbon footprint that we leave on our planet.
WHY GO CLIMATE NEUTRAL ?
Climate change is a grave concern that the planet is facing today. With increasing amounts of carbon emissions, the earth’s atmosphere is trapping more heat, which has devastating outcomes.
Becoming Climate Neutral (or Carbon Neutral) is to strike a balance between our emissions and how much of it is being absorbed back from the earth's atmosphere. A certified Climate Neutral brand helps in balancing its carbon footprint by offsetting it by investing in various pro-environment initiatives like renewable energy, reforestation etc.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
By partnering with a non-profit organization like Climate Neutral, we first map & measure our carbon footprint, starting from the farms to the consumer’s table, globally. We then purchase carbon credits equivalent to our carbon footprint and these credits are invested into quantifiable climate change solutions, like energy efficiency, reforestation, waste disposal etc. This is called ‘carbon offsetting’.
By investing in pro-environment solutions like these, we balance our carbon footprint, while striving to come up with ways to reduce our overall footprint, without compromising on our product’s quality & safety.
