Westfalia Fruit Group, a multinational supplier of avocados, has achieved the One Carbon World Carbon Neutral International Standard for 15 of its businesses for 2020.

As part of this project, akin to the trend of many international companies as they shift to ‘green’, Westfalia Fruit calculated its footprint for 2020 with the support of One Carbon World. Westfalia Fruit in Peru, Westfalia Colombia, Westfalia Fruit Marketing in South Africa and Westfalia Fruit BV in the Netherlands have also achieved carbon neutrality status for their scope 1 & 2 emissions as well as certification under the One Carbon World Carbon Neutral International Standard, a carbon footprint verification organization and a recognised resource partner in the UN’s Climate Neutral Now initiative.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to the environment we work towards the wellbeing of the planet and are focused on climate change mitigation. We are proud to receive this certification which is a step on the road to our long-term target to be ‘lifetime carbon neutral’ by 2049,” says Johnathan Sutton Group safety and environment executive at Westfalia Fruit International.
