Baby food company Happy Family Organics has announced its commitment for net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

It intends to reduced its greenhouse gas emissions “to the lowest amount possible” and invest in carbon removal projects to balance emissions that cannot be eliminated.

Projects will include investing in new solar power for 100% of the electricity used to manufacture products by 2023, increasing the use of post-consumer recycled content in packaging by 2025 and implementing fuel and route efficiency projects for transport emissions.

Happy Family Organics’ latest commitment builds on its existing 2025 Packaging Promise, which includes actions to bring the company closer to net zero carbon.

It uses the maximum recycled content possible and requires certification that any new materials are sustainably sourced for all paperboard and corrugate boxes, ensuring zero deforestation.

Since 2018, it has invested more than $250,000 (£185,139) in farmer training programmes as part of Project Greenhouse, an initiative to educate farmers and provide resources on regenerative agriculture practices to tackle climate change.

Anne Laraway, CEO of Happy Family Organics said: “Research shows that the state of our planet is keeping parents up at night. As a parent-led brand, it’s simple for us: if we want to create a better tomorrow for our little ones, we need to implement solutions today that will help reduce our carbon footprint and help mitigate climate change for their tomorrow.

“Sustainability is at the core of our company and we’re proud to have a hand in creating a better future with our net zero commitment.”
