Thanks to the Carbon Footprint study of the product, it was possible to estimate the impact of a Boniviri bottle at 2.88 kg CO2 eq.
While agriculture continues to play an irreplaceable mitigation role, agricultural products, through their entire life cycle, can cause an impact on global warming. For example, the analysis of the life cycle of extra virgin olive oils has highlighted that among the most impacting phases of the supply chain are those related to the cultivation of olives, the production of packaging materials, the distribution of the product. finished . By purchasing Boniviri products, you are sure that their carbon footprint will be measured and zeroed, thanks to the commitment of growers and millers and to the emissions compensation program carried out by Boniviri.
In 2020 Boniviri carried out a product Carbon Footprint study . Through the interview with the stakeholders of a Boniviri production chain, involving one of the partner growers and an oil mill, it was possible to collect data relating to the emission impact of a 750 ml Boniviri bottle. From the fuel used for the tractor, to the transport of the olives to the mill, each step has been carefully traced.
This study was then reworked and digitized using the Climate Impact Forecast tool. In this way it was possible to estimate the impact of a bottle in 2.88 kg CO 2 eq .
Once the emission impact has been estimated, Boniviri offsets the emissions generated through a reforestation project in Italy , making the emission impact of its extra virgin olive oil neutral ("carbon neutral").
Thanks to these choices, those who buy Boniviri oil buy a product that is neutral from the point of view of emissions: a positive choice for the environment and for future generations .
