Climate neutral packaging

Products that carry the ÅterBära™ label are 100% climate neutral. We calculate the amount of emissions generated throughout the entire process, then offset all these carbon emissions by supporting certified tree planting in South America.


		

THE MOST IMPORTANT PACKAGING IS THE ONE AROUND US

We love packagings. To help people and companies display, protect and carry things of value – be it a brand, a product or an idea. We are constantly seeking the best solution for each customer, while never forgetting the most important question: How much can the world carry?

We never take more than we give. Nature is our best supplier, our relationship and mutual trust is invaluable.

By planting trees for each product labelled with ÅterBära™, we compensate for all carbon emissions originating from that product. This means that you get a product that is 100% climate neutral.

MORE THAN A CLIMATE BENEFIT

The carbon offsetting for Avisera’s climate neutral products occurs through certified tree planting. Tree planting projects, which are certified according to Gold Standard, contribute to a reduction in poverty and to a sustainable environment.

In addition to the trees absorbing carbon dioxide and making local communities less vulnerable to climate change, the project also creates jobs, giving small farmers not only more sources of income but also more stable ones.

Gold Standard works with long-term support, enabling vulnerable societies to manage their natural resources in a more sustainable way.

The trees are planted in Colombia through the Vegachi project. The project provides small farmers with new economic opportunities, a diversification of income and more robust agriculture.

Replanting also contributes to greater biological diversity and the maintenance of ecosystem services such as regulating water flows and reducing erosion.

Climate analysis with life cycle perspective

We have done analyses with a life-cycle perspective to calculate the climate impact of selected products

ANALISYS & REPORT

We have done analyses with a life-cycle perspective of the climate impact (in terms of carbon emissions) of selected products . The climate analysis covers all stages of the process, from the production of each raw material through to delivery of the product to the customer.

It includes the path from production of the raw materials, materials used in packaging for transportation, transportation services, energy usage in production, printing and finally distribution to the customer.

Furthermore, to ensure that the products are 100% climate neutral, margins are also accounted for in the analysis.

The result of the climate analysis and the climate impact of the various products have been compiled in a report. To obtain a copy of the report, please contact Rosanna Lundgren, the Project Manager for ÅterBära™.
