We’ve Earned Our Climate Pledge Badge! 

21 April 2022

To celebrate Earth Month, we’re excited to announce that Supplant™ Chocolate Bars have earned the Climate Pledge Friendly Certification from Amazon.

A Climate Pledge Friendly Certification means that our chocolate bars are certified by a third party to be sustainable in one aspect or another. As Amazon explains on its website, these certifiers include “governmental agencies, non-profits, and independent laboratories.” Amazon chose these external organizations to help them distinguish products that are more sustainable. It relies on “certifications that are reputable, transparent, and have a focus on preserving the natural world.”

We earned our Climate Pledge Friendly certification by conducting a rigorous ISO-14067-compliant product carbon footprint assessment on our new sustainable chocolate bars. This assessment considered every aspect of our milk and dark chocolate bar production. It looked at the entire process from bean to bar, including packaging, transport, production, and beyond.

Our assessment was critically reviewed by an external expert and then reviewed and certified by Carbon Fund. We purchase carbon offsets from them quarterly, so you can be assured that every Supplant Chocolate Bar that you buy is 100% carbon neutral.

Carbon Fund uses carbon offsets to support carbon mitigation projects around the world. In particular, it supports tropical reforestation, an area that we’re especially passionate about. Traditional sugarcane agriculture has caused immense damage to tropical rainforests. Restoring these natural areas will help restore biodiversity for some of the most sensitive ecosystems in the world.

We are proud to have earned the Climate Pledge Friendly certification. It demonstrates our passionate commitment to sustainability, an important consideration for Amazon customers who are looking for a planet-friendly chocolate bar. The Climate Pledge Friendly badge assures you, our customers, that you are making a climate-friendly choice when you enjoy Supplant chocolate bars.
