Carbon footprint expertise




Agriculture Climate Forest REDD+ Remote sensing




Main goals

Norohy's ultimate goal is full scope carbon neutrality by 2025. In order to achieve this goal, it is important to identify the emission factors associated with the company's activities. This is the first step in helping to build a emissions offsetting strategy. Norohy controls its supply chains through long-term partnerships for vanilla, the main product, and also organic sugar. The mission will therefore have to establish the carbon footprint of the company's full scope activity using recognized methodologies.

Specific objectives

SO1. Carry out a full scope carbon assessment of the Norohy activity
SO2. Prepare a carbon offset strategy, ideally as an insetting program. Other options could be explored, such as buying back carbon credits from projects in Madagascar, for example.
