PLT is Carbon Neutral

PLT Health Solutions officially certified as carbon neutral by the CarbonFund.Org Foundation

In September of 2021, PLT Health Solutions was officially certified as carbon neutral by the CarbonFund.Org Foundation, achieving a Carbonfree® partner designation. To achieve this certification, we instituted a company-wide emissions reduction program to lower our environmental impact. This has included consolidating our international product shipments to reduce cargo emissions and balancing essential business travel with virtual meetings to reduce air travel emissions. It also includes workplace initiatives such as investment in energy-efficient technologies and moving files and documentation to electronic formats to minimize paper use. Working with CarbonFund.Org, PLT is also contributing to creating carbon emission offsets.

These efforts in becoming carbon neutral are part of a broader Sustainability platform that has been a cornerstone of the PLT business for many years. Around the world, PLT is involved in efforts to support the sustainable growing, harvesting and processing of the raw materials that go into its ingredients as part of its PLT360™ initiative.

The Sustainability platform also includes People+Planet™ initiatives dedicated to promoting human health and quality of life, as well as projects supporting the environment on both land and sea.


The Envira Amazonia Project

One part of the PLT program to go carbon neutral is our support for The Envira Amazonia Project – a tropical forest conservation initiative located in Brazil that combines conservation with community development activities. The Envira Amazonia Project is a payment for ecosystem services forest conservation project, otherwise known as a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) project, protecting nearly 500,000 acres (200,000 hectares) of tropical rainforest. The project is expected to mitigate the release of more than 12.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions while preserving the habitat for an extraordinary amount of biodiversity and directly benefitting local communities. This is one of the ways we support the UN’s Climate Action SDG.
