Primo Water Corp. said that its North American wholly-owned subsidiary is now a CarbonNeutral certified company that has achieved certification under The CarbonNeutral Protocol, an international standard administered by Natural Capital Partners.
The certification is in addition to the certifications in the company’s European operations where it has maintained carbon neutrality for the past eight consecutive years.
SCS Global Services, a global leader in third-party environmental and sustainability veriﬁcation, has independently verified that Primo Water North America has achieved carbon neutrality for its U.S. operations after establishing its GHG inventory for Scopes 1, 2, and select Scope 3 categories, and purchasing and retiring carbon offsets through Natural Capital Partners.
“Achieving carbon neutrality in our U.S. operations is a critical step toward improving our standing as a sustainability leader and ensuring that we are upholding our commitment to being a steward of the planet’s natural resources,” said Tom Harrington, Primo’s CEO. “Over the past several years, we have shifted new route truck purchasing from diesel to propane powered vehicles to reduce carbon emissions and optimized mileage by implementing route planning technologies. We have also improved efficiency at our production facilities to lower our energy usage per finished product. Looking ahead, we will continue to search for sustainable ways to improve the livelihoods of our customers, our associates and the communities we serve.”
