Climate change continues to be one of the biggest, most challenging problems our planet faces, and our Sustainable Growth Initiative is a comprehensive and sustained effort for FIJI Water to do its part and take a leadership role - in the long-term pursuit of holistic environmental solutions, said Thomas Mooney, senior vice president, Sustainable Growth, FIJI Water.
Over the next three years, FIJI Water will reduce the amount of energy required throughout the lifecycle of its products through a number of efforts including engineering projects to increase the energy efficiency of its bottling facility in Fiji, optimization of logistics to make greater use of low carbon shipping modalities (primarily ocean freight and rail), and a reduction in packaging. Remaining energy demands will increasingly be met with renewable energy such as wind to power its bottling facility in Fiji, and bio-diesel to replace traditional diesel use in transportation and other applications.
ICF International, a global leader in analyzing emissions inventories and providing advice on climate strategy, will independently review and verify the companys carbon footprint. To ensure transparency of its carbon negative commitment, FIJI Water will work with ICF International to publicly report its progress against the above targets on an annual basis.
A Verifiable and Permanent Carbon Offsets Program
Remaining carbon emissions that cannot be managed out of the product lifecycle will be mitigated through a portfolio of forest carbon (i.e., reforestation and forest protection) and renewable energy offset projects, developed jointly with Conservation Internation
