Science Based Targets 

Harris Tea Company has committed to a 25% reduction in Scope 1 & 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 from baseline year 2020. We have reached our 2023 target of 10% reduction in GHG emissions and on waste generated in operations as a part of Scope 3.

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a global movement for ambitious corporate decarbonization. By joining the SBTi we are ensuring our climate action is in line with the latest science. We are proud to join over 4000 companies worldwide in setting a net zero target. SBTi is a partnership between Carbon Disclosure Project, United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute and World Wildlife Fund.

Cutting Greenhouse Gas Emissions

We report greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) through the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). We have achieved a 34% GHG reduction from our baseline year (2009). Our 2022 CDP score was a B, comparing favorably to both the North American average of “C” and Food and Beverage Processing average of a “C” and the global average of a “C”.

Implementing Solar Power

We use solar energy in two of our facilities to lower our GHG emissions. Because of our installation of solar panels on our Moorestown, NJ facility, we were able to generate 28% of our 2022 electricity usage from the sun.

Focusing on Sustainability

We submit data to THESIS/The Sustainability Consortium. We measure conditions at our tea estates on biodiversity, deforestation, worker’s health & safety, child labor and labor rights. In 2022, our Sustainability Consortium performance was 51% higher than the tea industry average of 34%. We have been providing sustainable sourcing information since 2014.
