Gunna is 'CARBON NEGATIVE'
The world is facing a climate emergency; we can't just sit here and do nothing.
In a bid to help our planet, Gunna has officially pledged to go carbon negative. Each year, we'll eliminate TWICE the carbon we create, making us the UK's most carbon-negative craft soft drink.
As we do our part for our planet, we hope to see other companies follow suit, making the same pledge. The damage is already done; we need to act now!
HOW DID WE BECOME CARBON NEGATIVE:
1. Our cans are fully recyclable.
2. We carefully handpick our suppliers and partners with the planet in mind.
3. Our craft drink production site uses 100% renewable energy.
4. Our production site has been awarded a Lean and Green star, meaning that their transport emission is 20% lower than the industry’s average.
5. Our fruits and flavours provider was named as one of the world's most ethical companies of 2020.
6. We have chosen to invest in three carbon reduction projects that also have wider social benefits.
7. We'll continue to select more eco-projects in the foreseeable future that benefit our planet.
Alarming amounts of plastic end up in our ocean, creating a devastating effect on sea life, destroying species and contributing to pollution. Our partnership with Plastic Bank allows us to help to reduce ocean plastic while improving the lives of those who are most affected.
Afforestation (Rio Kama, Nicaragua)
Bamboo is one of the planet's most efficient biological tools for fighting climate change. This project has planted more than 1 million plants of a native species, covering a staggering 2,361 hectares while protecting an additional 1,000 hectares of old forest as a conservation zone. The project contributes to mitigation by preventing deforestation and capturing CO2, reducing temperatures creating microclimates, supporting a low-carbon economy and creating livelihoods for vulnerable communities.
Solar Energy (Outapi, Namibia)
Boasting an average of ten hours of sunshine per day, Namibia is one of the world’s sunniest countries, therefore, offering enormous potential for solar energy. Despite this fact, the country imports 60 per cent of its electricity from neighbouring countries, and 40 per cent of the rural population has no access to electricity at all. Solar Energy is a project committed to contributing to renewable energies in Namibia, improving the national and regional power supply.
