Numi Organic Tea Joins Climate Neutral

Jane Franch, the Director of Strategic Sourcing & Sustainability at Numi Organic Tea, has joined Climate Neutral’s Board of Directors. 

Franch built Numi’s climate strategy that included greenhouse gas accounting processes, supply chain mapping, and emissions reductions and offset strategies.

Climate Neutral is a nonprofit organization that empowers brands to take climate action in their business and provides them a label to show consumers that they have reached guidelines that measure, offset, and reduce carbon emissions. Numi Organic Tea, based out of Oakland, California, was one of the first businesses to receive a Climate Neutral label.

In the past 2 months, we have been awed by our fellow humans’ capacity for collective action. Millions have proven that by staying #safeathome, we can alter the trajectory of our future and #flattenthecurve. We’ve demonstrated extraordinary capacity to change behavior patterns and put the collective good over individual needs and desires. Working together, there’s no stopping us! 🌎 Today marks the 50th anniversary of #EarthDay! Numi has committed to #beclimateneutral, partnering with @beclimateneutral to measure, offset, and reduce our carbon emissions this year and every year (see our link in bio for details on our 3-step plan). If every company commits to be climate neutral this Earth Day, we can tackle #climatechange and keep global temperature rise under 2°C, which experts agree is essential to avoiding the worst impacts of the climate crisis. We think all companies should commit to becoming Climate Neutral Certified. You can join us by tagging your favorite brands in the comments to step up. 🌎 Climate change is here and there’s no time to waste. Let’s do this. 💯

“Climate action work must address systems of global food production, which are greatly impacted by global temperature rise, and in turn have the potential to either increase or draw down carbon emissions,” says Franch. “I’m excited to bring my experience working with Numi’s global tea farming communities to the table and work on solutions that safeguard our food systems for generations to come.”
