Reducing CO₂ at HelloFresh

As part of our mission to change the way people eat, we are constantly finding ways to help you balance your carbon footprint. HelloFresh commits to offsetting all the direct CO2 emissions caused by our internal operations and offices, plus all emissions from corporate travel and delivery to our customers. We do this by investing in green initiatives via our partner Planetly. By completely offsetting the carbon footprint of our deliveries, we support you in making green choices and boost environmentally friendly projects throughout the world.

Offsetting Carbon Around the World

In addition to our local initiative, we have invested in several other carbon-offsetting projects across the globe. From large-scale renewable energy plants in Mongolia to farm-waste methane capture in the Netherlands and Turkey, HelloFresh supports green action aimed at meeting the challenges of climate change.

Our local initiative

To offset our carbon emissions locally, HelloFresh has supported a woodland creation project at Wester Coshieville, through Forest Carbon. Trees were planted here in 2018 to increase native woodland cover in the region, and our contribution will enable nearly 600 tonnes of carbon dioxide to be sequestered over the project's lifetime. By using locally-sourced seeds, this woodland will also provide a valuable habitat for wildlife and a new resource for local people and visitors to enjoy.

About Planetly

To make sure your meal kit deliveries are carbon neutral to your doorstep, we’ve teamed up with the climate action experts at Planetly. They build software for intelligent carbon management to help us analyse our total direct carbon emissions wherever HelloFresh is active (excl. the USA), and match us with local and global green initiatives like those noted above. We only work with certified initiatives that have been carefully selected by Planetly to ensure that the projects we support create real impact to prevent climate change. Each project is closely aligned with the meal kit model, which is why we focus on the agricultural, forestry and green energy industries. Planetly also supports us in further reducing our carbon footprint, for example, by switching to green electricity in Germany.
