We offset emissions for a more sustainable future

Our commitment to reducing our impact

For us, reducing our impact means caring for the environment around us to help create a better, brighter future.

Greenhouse gas emissions are among the main causes of global pollution and so since 2014 we have been steering a course that now culminates with offsetting CO2 for the entire range of Nonno Nanni Stracchino cheeses, making them all completely carbon neutral.

This decisive action is part of our constant commitment to becoming even greener, more sustainable and true allies of our planet.

Phases of offsetting

Offsetting CO2 involves the emissions generated throughout the entire product life cycle of our Stracchino cheeses, from milk production on the dairy farm to cheesemaking, to product packaging and distribution.

UPSTREAM

Offsetting emissions involves the entire production chain and starts even before milk arrives at the production plant. This phase involves offsetting of emissions linked to production of raw milk and auxiliary ingredients like rennet and lactic cultures, and of packaging.

CORE

For operations in our cheese factory, we offset all emissions linked to transport from the dairy farm to the factory, preparation of the final product and disposal of waste.

DOWNSTREAM

In the last phase, we also offset emissions relating to product storage, transport and distribution right through to the last stage of disposal of packaging.

A solid effort for goodness

2021

65.412

tons of CO2 offset

Our commitment to offsetting extends to Asia with wind energy, energy efficiency in transport and hydroelectric energy projects.

2020

23.359

tons of CO2 offset

Our mission to offset CO2 emissions continues via a hydroelectric energy project in South America and a new sustainable forest management project in the forests of Val di Fiemme.

2019

16.676

tons of CO2 offset

Our commitment does not stop: we once again supported forest management projects in South America and Piedmont.

2018

13.605

tons of CO2 offset

Forests are important for the planet and it is essential to manage them sustainably. We therefore gave further support at national level, in Lombardy, and at international level, in South America.

2017

18.993

tons of CO2 offset

We continued to offset CO2 emissions by getting involved in other forest management projects in Italy and abroad, in Piedmont and South America.

2016

18.329

tons of CO2 offset

We committed further by installing a cogeneration plant in Asia and supporting a new sustainable forest management project in Piedmont.

2015

19.006

tons of CO2 offset

Our mission continued with a hydroelectric energy generation project in South America and support for forest management projects in Italy, like the one in Spessa Po Municipality.

2014

16.833

tons of CO2 offset

We embarked on our mission to offset CO2 emissions by getting involved in a hydroelectric energy generation project in Western Asia and supporting sustainable forest management in Lemie Municipality.

Nonno Nanni results

This is the result we have achieved since 2014: a total of 192,213 tons of CO2 offset through purchasing credits deriving from numerous environmental protection projects in Italy and around the world.
