(C02) CARBON NEGATIVE FARMING
In only 14 acres of organic cactus plantations, we can absorb 8,100 tons of CO2 per year, while at the farm we only generate 15.30 tons of CO2 annually.
The early stage LCA follows the ISO 14040 and 14044 LCA guidelines. These results are based on early-stage life cycle analysis conducted on Desserto® products following life cycle analysis related ISO guidelines (14040 and 14044). These results are based on preliminary data and estimates for manufacturing process and materials in the relevant supply chains. These results are meant to provide an understanding of potential sustainability related impacts/benefits of the product based on life cycle impact assessment principles. Any comparisons provided with other products are based on approximations and averages where applicable. It is recommended to use your own specific benchmarks for comparison purposes.
