Renewable energy sources
In 2021, we sourced 100% of our organization’s electricity consumption from zero-emission renewable wind energy. Additionally, we’re covered by renewable energy certificates (RECs) whenever direct purchasing isn’t available.
Shorter supply chain
HelloFresh has fewer stops between the supplier and the customer, unlike traditional supermarkets. We also prioritize domestic suppliers and buy directly from the source to further reduce emissions.
Since 2020, we’ve balanced all emissions from our internal operations, business travel, and box deliveries via carbon offsets. In 2021 alone, we offset 62 thousand tons of carbon emissions.
We’re constantly looking for new ways to innovate. Examples include retrofitting LEDs in older facilities, monitoring equipment to reduce electricity usage, and installing rooftop solar arrays where possible.
Subscribing to HelloFresh reduces your carbon footprint by 31% compared to cooking with the same ingredients from a supermarket. Read more about how we got our data in the life cycle assessment below.
Fewer stops in the supply chain reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Typical supermarkets have longer supply chains, meaning more vehicles and more CO2 emissions.
