99

Carlson is joining Impact Collective, a group of brands committed to making an immediate and positive environmental impact through the reduction of their carbon, plastic, water, and energy footprints, according to a press release.

“At Carlson, we’re as committed to the environment as we are to the high quality of our products,” said President Carilyn Anderson in the press release. “Since we imported our first omega-3 fish oils from Norway in the early 1980s, we have been dedicated to working with low-impact fisheries using traditional, sustainable methods—and now we’re taking steps toward going plastic neutral by removing proportionate amounts of plastic from our waterways.”

Impact Collective is managed and administered by GreenPrint, a global environmental technology company. GreenPrint’s technology calculates members’ carbon, plastic, energy, and/or water consumption, and members can offset it through investments in certified projects. Impact Collective members can use Impact seals on product packaging.

“As we continue to partner with companies within the CPG space, we are proud to include Carlson as an IMPACT COLLECTIVE member,” said Pete Davis, Founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “Together, we are empowered to be responsible stewards of our planet and are working to drive the industry to become more sustainable, one step at a time.”
