How We Achieved Carbon Neutral Certification

We’ve measured our carbon footprint and are offsetting emissions to zero.

Measure levels change iconMEASURE

Through lifecycle analysis, we calculated the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere through the raw material sourcing, production and distribution to retailers of domestic baking soda. This analysis was conducted by an independent third party, according to the requirements of the International Standard ISO 14044 (ISO, 2006), and was critically reviewed.

Offsets are just a first step. We are also pursuing energy reduction projects at our production facilities and in collaboration with our suppliers – as well as working toward longer term emissions reduction targets in accordance with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

We purchased carbon offsets equal to our estimated annual emissions. These offsets are generated, verified and tracked in accordance with applicable standards. We’ve purchased offsets in connection with three project areas globally: electric rail systems and solar water heating in India, the preservation of grasslands in Colorado, and forest protection and sustainable development activities in Colombia.

Science-based Targets

Church & Dwight, the parent company of ARM & HAMMER, submitted an application to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) establishing reduction targets to limit warming to 1.5°C for scope 1 and 2 emissions and below 2°C for scope 3 targets over 10 years, in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement and IPCC.

The Arbor Day Foundation

Through our partnership, we’ve helped plant nearly 5 million trees in the Mississippi River Valley, one of the most critical wetlands in North America. By supporting this project, we have reduced our company’s carbon footprint by over 144,000 metric tons since 2017 – that’s the estimated equivalent of removing 31,000 cars from the road!
