Krispy Kreme is Carbon Neutral

We are proud to be certified carbon neutral across our UK & Ireland operations!*

 

As part of our ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon footprint we are proud to share that Sustainable Advantage has certified Krispy Kreme UK as carbon neutral across our UK & Ireland operations for 2022. We are also working on our roadmap to net zero and want to ensure we have the right plans in place before we set a target.

What does carbon neutral mean?

Carbon neutral means we are offsetting our operations emissions so that any CO2 released into the atmosphere from our activities is balanced by an equivalent amount being removed. Our operations emissions come from our gas and electricity at our facilities and through our trucks which deliver made fresh daily doughnuts to over 1800 locations across the UK and Ireland.

Our approach to carbon neutral

To achieve carbon neutral status we have found ways to reduce our carbon footprint across our business and also purchased carbon credits. The amount of credits matches the amount of our direct emissions. Our approach to selecting projects with carbon credits was to look at locations where our ingredients are sourced from and commit to projects in these areas.

Our projects:

Musi River Hydro, Sumatra, Indonesia-Carbon Neutral

Musi River Hydro,  SUMATRA, INDONESIA

This grid-connected, run-of-river hydroelectricity plant is built on the upper banks of the Musi River near Sumatra.. The project reduces 568,000 tons of CO2e on average annually and creates 50 permanent jobs with some revenue from the project is reinvested into the local communityfor key initiatives.. The project has also established a reforestation programme safeguarding the natural landscape.

Vinh Hao 6, Solar Power Project, Binh Thuan, Vietnam

The Binh Thuan solar power plant in Vietnam is the largest solar power plant in the world generating electricity. The plant is part of Vietnam’s plan to increase its use of renewable energy and reduce its reliance on coal-fired power plants, powering 1.5m homes and offsetting 2.5m tons of CO2 per year. This project creates green energy providing both fuel security and employment for local people.

Maisa Redd+ Project Brazil-Carbon Neutral

Maisa Redd+ Project Brazil

This project protects a part of the Brazilian Amazon that is threatened by deforestation, safeguarding critical habitats and creating better living conditions for local people. This is an area of immense biodiversity and is home to over 450 animal and plant species, many of which cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.

Hydroelectric Projects Cocorná, Granada, Colombia

The El Molino-San Matias hydroelectric projects run in the riverbed of the San Matías River.. The projects aim to generate electricity from the installation of two run-of-river renewable small hydroelectric plants. The energy generated by the projects feeds the National Interconnected System of Colombia and reduce approximately 90,393 tco2e per year. This project has helped to promote development of road networks and infrastructure which supports local communities.
