  1. I’d really like to know how much of the “neutral” is accomplished via the offsets as opposed to actual reductions.

  2. Paying others for your pollution does not make you carbon neutral. That pollution is still being thrown out there.

  3. I’ll buy more Maple Leaf stuff

  4. That is the great and appriciatable step by Maple Leaf Foods , let us see who follows them

  5. Bullshit.

    There is no such thing as carbon neutral. They still emit tonnes and tonnes of CO2, using trucks and electricity etc., what’s their excuse for offsetting that? Besides total balony, of course.

  6. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/maple-leaf-foods-says-it-s-now-carbon-neutral-due-to-emission-reductions-offsets-1.4674743) reduced by 79%. (I’m a bot)

    > Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Published Thursday, November 7, 2019 1:10PM EST. Maple Leaf Foods Inc. has reduced its emissions and invested in environmental projects to become carbon neutral in an effort to be the world's most sustainable protein company and meet consumer demand for corporate responsibility on climate change.

    > The company announced earlier in the day that it believes it is the first major food company in the world to be carbon neutral.

    > The company partly made the decision to help fight against climate change, said McCain, because it's clear to Maple Leaf and all its stakeholders that the world is facing a climate crisis.
