Happy Happy Foods is proud to announce that our products and our people are now completely carbon neutral!
Our ‘Climate Happy’ program is based on three core commitments – Measure, Reduce, Offset.
Happy Happy Foods has engaged Carbon Cloud, an independent third party emissions consultant, to perform an
all-encompassing carbon emissions assessment of our products. Their assessment includes the emissions produced by the cultivation of our raw materials, transportation, manufacture and distribution.
We are committed to measuring and publishing the carbon footprint of all of our products. We fully embrace the challenge of transparency and accountability, and we encourage other individuals and businesses to do the same.

Furthermore, the overall assessment of our emissions includes the personal carbon footprints of our staff, including their home power bills, weekend activities and personal holidays!
Happy Happy Foods is committed to making continuous environmental improvements through informed and incremental changes, not just with our current operations but also with future products. Our ambitions are not always easy to implement, and sometimes are not possible, but understanding our carbon footprint allows us to strive to be better.
We believe the environment deserves the right to a seat in the boardroom. When making decisions, our focus is to achieve sustainable and environmental outcomes, as well as commercial imperatives. It is our desire to continue to look for ways to improve and strive to implement these actions into our business.
As stated by Director John Cruse: “Our business mission is to continue to develop plant-based options that replace traditional products with an aim to helping consumers reduce their climate impact.”
Our products need to be better for the environment and nutritionally better than the product it is replacing. Introducing sustainable and environmentally conscious products helps others reduce their impact.
By introducing formal measurement, we create awareness that inspires us to make consequential improvements and we encourage our employees to reflect this philosophy in their own spheres of influence.
Our people and our products are 100% offset so that our products come to you 100% carbon neutral.
We measure our total carbon footprint on a quarterly basis and purchase carbon credits to offset all of our generated emissions.
We purchase carbon credits through Pangolin Associates, an Australian Climate Active registered consultant. Our carbon credits support the Bundled Renewable Wind Power Project in the Rajasthan region in India. This program meets UN sustainable development goals and has so far provided 59.4MW of renewable energy.
Situated in one of the most arid parts of India, the project supplies energy to the carbon intensive “NEWNE” integrated Northern, Eastern, Western, and North-Eastern regional electricity grids. Replacing energy from burning fossil fuels, the turbines replace 102,870 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
This bundled wind power project generates 59.4 MW in two areas of Rajasthan. Bhesada, close to the city of Jaisalmer, produces 39.9 MW. The second site near Dolat generates 19.5 MW. The result is 115 GWh of electricity.
As a Climate Responsible company, we then offset our Carbon Footprint through the purchase of Carbon Credit offsets using Pangolin Associates.
Every member of our Happy Happy Foods team is a Carbon Neutral Human. To achieve this, each staff member completed an independent assessment to measure their individual climate footprint. The data in each of our individual reports enables us to then make changes to our habits and lifestyles to reduce our carbon footprint. To ensure each of our team members then become Carbon Neutral, Happy happy Foods purchases Carbon Credit offsets using Pangolin Associates.
