The ambition of A Good Company is to have a new positive impact on the environment. Not only do we want to be a responsible company, we also want to inspire change and make other companies and competitors think about their environmental impact. In a perfect world, every company should climate compensate transport, choose environmentally friendly raw materials and package products in a responsible way.
When assessing the environmental impact of any manufacturing process, it’s common to look at three main components:
To make it simpler for you to understand how we look at our own environmental footprint and how we benchmark our environmental footprint to that of our competitors, we have decided to convert energy consumption and waste water consumption into a total carbon emission footprint numbers
But how can you convert waste water and energy consumption into a corresponding carbon emission footprint, you may rightly ask yourself? It turns out that there are established scientific ways to do so.
Raw-materialWhen we compare our own Stone Paper Notebooks with traditional wood-pulp notebooks, we look at the weight of our notebooks, and calculate the corresponding amount of wood-pulp that would be required to produce a traditional paper equivalent. Our estimate is that a ton of of wood-pulp corresponds to 20 trees.

Our Stone Paper Notebooks require no wood-pulp whatsoever. Besides, we compensate every purchase of a Stone Paper Notebook with the planting of 0,7 trees. Each tree absorbes 22 kg Co2 per year.
TransportationAt A Good Company we climate compensate all of our transport and shipments, unlike most other e-commerce retailers out there. All of our products are sent to our fulfillment center by boat and we have actively decided to avoid airplane shipment at all cost.When comparing the environmental impact of our shipments to those of other competing companies, we make two assumptions: that their factories are located at the same places as ours and that they are shipping to the location of our fulfilment center, using the same shipping methods. We always chose the most environmentally friendly shipment option to get products from our fulfiment center to our customers.

ProductionWhen we assess the environmental impact of our production process, we look at three components:
Waste water resulting from productionTo produce 1 tonnes recycled pulp paper 34.068 litres is neededTo produce 1 tonnes of stone paper 0 water is needed.To calculate the effect of 1 ton we used this calculator: 1 tonnes paper creates 0.7kg of CO2.Pulp paper emission
Co2 KG in productionPulp paper emissionTo produce 1 tonnes recylced pulp paper 1431 kg Co2 is needed.
Stone PaperTo produce 1 tonnes Stone Paper 473 kg Co2 is needed.
Energy consumptionTo produce energy is needed. All Stone Paper production is made with 100% solar power. Energy needed to make 1 tonnesTo produce 1 ton recycled pulp paper 19 315 100 BTU is neededTo produce 1 ton Stone Paper 2 968 563 BTU is needed (869 WAT)We have converted BTU to Watt with this calculator and from Watt converted that to Co2 KG.Pulp paper emission

Natural Pen calculations
Natural Grass Pen is made using only natural meadow grass and recycled BPA-free plastics. We also have a ink refill to enable resuage of the pen.Traditional pens contains of 100% polystyrene. Polystyrene is a cheap, mass produced plastic. The production of polystyrene releases chlorofluorocarbons (Schwarz, Leisewitz 1999) into the environment- gases that have roughly 1200 times the greenhouse effects of carbon dioxide. Most of these pens, The Bic Pen as one market leading example is not refillable.
