Tide Net Zero

How much biochar has Tide purchased?

Tide bought 3,711 tonnes of carbon  removals from Wakefield Biochar in Georgia, US, which is sequestering CO2 durably in biochar. This purchase covers Tide’s carbon emissions  period for 1st January 2022 – 31st December 2022.

Wakefield Biochar is an American company that partners with a paper mill. The paper mill turns bark waste into char and Wakefield then turns this into biochar by applying it to degraded land or agricultural land. Without this activity, the carbon would have returned to the atmosphere via combustion. All of the waste material ‘feedstock’ originated from FSC-certified sustainable forestry.

The purchase of 3,500 initial tonnes happened on Friday 6th January 2023, with the remaining 211 tonnes purchased on 27 February 2023.
