TENZING, a powerful, plant-based drink blended with seven ingredients from nature, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is TENZING’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. It has calculated the carbon footprint of its head office operations for the year ending December 2020 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
TENZING’s total carbon footprint for the year ending December 2020 was 7.3 tCO2e and the relative carbon footprint was 0.76 tCO2e per employee.
“TENZING has a great business model and bases its work on some core ethics that make the company a great fit in the Planet Mark community. The team is already so switched onto creating a responsible and sustainable supply chain, and has made many great steps to create an environmentally sound business model. I am pleased that we have been able to add our expertise into the team’s plans, and introduce a measured carbon reduction policy to TENZING’s work. This is an exciting partnership and I cannot wait to see it flourish.”
TENZING is built on sustainability and ethical consumption. From naturally energising green coffee beans to its Rainforest Alliance Certified Green Tea, every can takes careful consideration of its cost to the planet. Its range is entirely made of plant-based ingredients, and its cans are fully recyclable. TENZING also re-invests 5% of its profits into environmental projects, such as its project placing sustainable bins along the trail to Mount Everest with the help of Jamling TENZING.
Plant based and vegan brands must act in a sustainable manner in order to maintain appeal to the ethical consumer market. Customers are increasingly demanding that the products they buy are sourced responsibly, and the carbon footprint of a business is central to any ethical business model. Companies must begin to implement data-driven carbon reduction targets, and plot the roadmap towards these goals. Action is crucial, for both the planet and modern consumer – carbon cutting can become an exciting business opportunity for modern ethical brands.
As part of the Planet Mark certification,
TENZING has committed to make a year-on-year reduction.
