Green Boy Group Achieves Carbon Neutrality

Global plant-based food ingredient supplier Green Boy Group was able to completely offset its Scope 1 and 2 emissions and part of its Scope 3 emissions, making the company carbon neutral in 2023.

The company has committed to working with its suppliers and vendors on reducing its Scope 3 emissions.

"We don't think offsetting is a long-term solution, which is why we are looking into reducing emissions in all scopes,” said co-founder and owner Frederik Otten in a statement. “As a worldwide plant-based ingredient supplier, de facto we are a supply-chain managing company, most of our emissions happen in Scope 3, the so called 'indirect emissions'. Our indirect emissions are our farmers, producers, shippers, truckers and warehouses direct emissions which is why one of our main goals for the coming years is to collaborate with our partners up and down the supply chain on finding solutions for more regenerative farming, cleaner production and carbon-reducing transportation methods."

Green Boy released details in its 2023 impact report, sharing an overview of the company's environmental strategy on emissions, sustainability partnerships and long-term ambitions aiming for climate-goal driven developments in the plant-based food industry.

Following the GHG protocol methodology, the company's impact report provides details on the company's own emissions and the emissions throughout its supply chain such as the production, transportation and warehousing of plant-based food ingredients. 

Green Boy's emission numbers reveal that on average, animal-based proteins have 97% higher CO2e emissions than Green Boy's plant-based proteins. According to "Our World In Data," animal proteins produce, on average, 149 kg CO2e per kg of protein, whereas Green Boy's plant-based proteins produce a total of 3.86kg CO2e per kg of plant-based protein.
