At San Rocco Italia, we care about reducing our carbon footprint, and we are proud to announce that all our shipments are now 100% carbon-neutral.

To acheive this, through the Shopify Sustainability Fund, we ensure that our shipping emissions are neutralized by carbon removal. This fund is dedicated to funding innovative companies that pull carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere and store it.

What is carbon removal?

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your order releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, then, through Shopify, we ensure that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies funded through the Shopify Sustainability Fund.

How are the funds used?

Currently, the funds go towards funding nature-based carbon removal solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and companies, such as DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, and Pachama.

This is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

Thank you for shopping with us, and we shall to continue to do whatever we can to improve the world we all share.
