Climate protection and carbon footprint reduction.
Climate protection and carbon footprint reduction
When companies talk about “carbon footprint” they’re referring to the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that they cause. Flow significantly lowers its carbon footprint with our packaging, renewable energy use, efficient processes, and the purchase of carbon offsets that fund the removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Flow is an operating carbon neutral and will continue to work toward being carbon negative by 2025.
Flow’s operational emissions in 2020: ca. 2K tonnes of CO2 last year.
Flow used a combination of 100% renewable energy acquisition and high-quality carbon offsets to achieve operational carbon neutrality—covering our facilities, shipping, fuel usage, and travel.
Flow sourced high quality carbon offsets from The Gold Standard®, supporting projects in renewable energy, water sanitation, and waste management.
Flow’s climate protection efforts in 2020
From 2019 to date, Flow's customers have helped avoid the equivalent of 1,430,000kgs of plastic/9458 tons of CO2 from entering the environment. In 2020 alone Flow offset 2800 tons of CO2 which is the equivalent of...
Greenhouse gas emissions from:
Passenger vehicles driven for one year

Gallons of gasoline consumed
Pounds of coal burned
Homes' electricity use for one year
Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by:
Incandescent lamps switched to LEDs
Wind turbines running for a year
trash bags of waste recycled instead of landfilled
Flow operates with a combination of 100% renewable energy acquisition, efficient processes, and obtaining high-quality carbon offsets to achieve operational carbon neutrality and reduce emissions above and beyond our impacts. We commit to being operationally carbon negative in 2022 and getting LEED certification for our facilities by 2023. We report on our carbon emissions and what we’re doing to eliminate them.
