Chip Maker Exceeds Emissions Goal, Retains Carbon Label
Under Carbon Trust’s labeling scheme, companies can only carry a label showing the carbon footprint of their product if they pledged to reduce that footprint year-on-year, reported BusinessGreen.
The chip maker announced it has exceeded its goal of reducing its carbon footprint 3 percent by 2009. So far Walkers has reduced its carbon footprint by 7 percent; equivalent to about 4,800 tones of CO2 emissions, or 6 grams of CO2 emissions per standard bag of crisp.
The carbon reductions have saved Walkers more than £400,000 over the past 2 years, which the company has re-invested in future energy saving projects.
The company says it now aims to reduce its energy consumption 20 percent by 2011.
