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. They strive to reduce their carbon footprint by 10% every year, and are 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.

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.”
