We’re cultivating better conditions for our people, communities, and planet.
At Square Roots, we strive to grow the world’s freshest produce, in ways that are measurably better for the world. Our efforts are focused on four crucial impact areas: environmental sustainability; diversity, equity, and inclusion; community engagement; and employee empowerment.
We’re on a path towards net zero emissions.
In line with the Paris Agreement, we’re halving our carbon emissions by 2030. By 2050, we’ll reach net zero. To keep us on track, we partnered with enterprise climate platform Watershed, and measured our Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. Now, we’re using that data to farm in cleaner, smarter ways.
47% of our emissions come from construction. To halve those by 2030, we’re rethinking our farm design and sourcing new, climate-smart building materials.
Right now, 21% of our emissions come from electricity. We’re changing that, starting with our Springfield, OH farm, which will be powered by onsite renewables.
Delivery vehicles account for 6% of our emissions. We’re working on electrifying our fleet, starting with our zero-emissions delivery initiative in NYC.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
We’re building an anti-racist company where every team member can thrive.
