Seattle Chocolate Company

Making chocolate and removing carbon

Founded in 1991, Seattle Chocolate Company (SCC) is a woman-owned chocolatier based in Seattle, Washington. Its mission is to make the world a brighter (and more delicious) place through chocolate.

Responsible sourcing and environmental impact are front of mind for their team and they're working with their stakeholders to reduce carbon emission at every step of the way. For a chocolate company like theirs, that means changing their packaging to compostable and recyclable material, reducing waste and diverting away from landfill, reducing employee commute, eliminating single use plastic, and more.

They’ve committed to Science Based Targets to limit global warming to 2.7º F above pre-industrial levels by reducing energy (gas and electricity) based emissions by 42% by 2030 and are working to reach net zero emissions by 2050. They’re also aiming to get zero-waste certified by 2030.

Not only are they taking action to lower their own emissions – they’re also buying carbon removals to help with the collective goal of reversing climate change. (A great example of Nori’s motto ‘emit less and remove the rest’!)

“Taking care of this one and only earth is very important to us, and climate change has drastically impacted the planet and its people,” said Ruby Shrestha, VP of Scientific Affairs at SCC, “Reversing climate change requires reduction of the excess CO2 from the atmosphere, which in turn requires carbon removal at a much faster pace.”

Reversing climate change is possible.

We can reverse climate change if we remove enough carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere.
