At Dutch Coffee Pack, we will always keep working towards producing the most sustainable coffee packaging. We were the very first that moved to completely aluminium-free stock bags and to introduce 100% plastic bags feeling like paper, while keeping your coffee as fresh as ever. Now we’re taking the next step:
Starting January 2019, every single coffee bag in our stock assortment is certified CO2-neutral. On this page you can learn more about the projects we’re working on and how these help reduce CO2-emission.
Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale. Our greatest threat in thousands of years. Climate change.
– Sir David Attenborough
Nobody can deny that our climate is changing. The environmental, economic and social impact is enormous. Excessive emission of greenhouse gas contributes dramatically to climate change and the packaging industry is not an exception. So we decided to do something about it.
What we’re doing in short
By investing in CO2-reducing projects in coffee growing countries, the greenhouse gas emissions needed to produce coffee bags, can be completely compensated by reducing emission elsewhere. That way we balance out the negative effect production has on the planet. But it goes a lot further than that. Because we only work on projects with the Gold Standard certification, we ensure that – besides negating our carbon emissions – local communities benefit the most. This way we maximize sustainable development and improve health standards of even the poorest.
If you use our stock bags, you’re already helping
The easiest way for us to make an impact was by starting to reduce our own ecological footprint. If you get your stock bags at DCP, you can be sure all the carbon emitted in production is compensated in full. This means you can fill your pouches care-free, knowing the bag keeps your coffee perfectly fresh, looks great and has zero impact on carbon emission – without any extra cost.
If you’re looking into creating a CO2-neutral custom bag, just let us know and we can find the most suitable option together.
