Republica Coffee has become the first Australian food company to be certified carbon neutral by Low Carbon Australia as part of the Australian Government-backed Carbon Neutral Program.
To qualify for certification, Republica Coffee measured its greenhouse gas emissions, took steps to reduce these, and committed to offset remaining emissions by cancelling carbon offsets. The Carbon Neutral Program is a voluntary scheme. Others to have received the government-backed Carbon Neutral certification include Qantas, Virgin, Jetstar, National Australia Bank, ANZ and Australian Paper.
