According to an independent verification by SGS India Private Limited, the company’s operations in this region are not just sustainable but carbon-negative, setting a new ecological benchmark.
Impressive Carbon Sequestration Per Kilogram of Tea
The GHG verification assessed that a total of 11026 tons of CO2 was absorbed by tea agroforestry system and biomass of Goodricke’s 5 tea gardens in Darjeeling, against the 1732 tons of CO2e emitted, thus confirming the gardens’ carbon-negative status. This translates to sequestration of 13 kilograms of carbon for every kilogram of tea produced in 2022. This is an incredible feat for sustainable agriculture. Every cup of Darjeeling tea from Goodricke now represents a tangible, positive impact on the environment, underscoring our commitment to responsible and sustainable production practices.
