The 2023 Regeneration Report

The 2023 Regeneration Report

Did you know food consumption accounts for 1/4 of all greenhouse gas emissions – one of the largest contributors to climate change? The long term solution to climate change lives with the land, not in a lab. Because better for the planet is better for you. 

We know undeniably that regenerative agriculture works to solve the climate crisis, as the single biggest impact we can have is to decarbonize our soil. As a regenerative brand with a plant-positive mission at our core, we’re committed to forging a new food system that focuses on long-term solutions to climate change - crafting packaged products that source regeneratively and are made with the latest sustainable methods, material and technology to ultimately drive demand back into this emerging system that will be the way forward for how our food is grown. 

We work to actively offset any carbon emissions that inevitably incur as part of the supply chain by investing in environmental projects that remove or avoid greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere. At west~bourne, we focus on a variety of forestry-based carbon offset projects - from reforestation to protection and improved forest management. These projects take place all over the global south and include projects like the Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project, the Mai Ndombe Project, the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve, the Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Envira Amazonia Project. 

What are the Benefits of Carbon Offsets?

Reduces the amount of carbon in the atmosphere by providing protected trees and plants around the world that can absorb carbon from the atmosphere.

Provides safe and protected habitat to wildlife all over the world by practicing sustainable forest and timber management that reduce the destruction of wildlife habitats.

Protects the local water supplies by acting as a natural filter that provides clean water for the local communities.

Supports projects that provide jobs and education opportunities for locals.

2023-2024: Regenerative Impact, By The Numbers 

Regeneration is in our DNA—we believe that regenerative farming is the future of agriculture. Our zero-waste approach seeks to nourish the soil, promote biodiversity, and remove carbon from the environment. In doing so, we’re not only supporting a more sustainable food system, but creating delicious, nutrient-dense food that’s good for you and the planet. Here’s a look at our impact as we counter climate change one craveable, regeneratively farmed bite at a time.
