At PRANA, we understand that the way we do business can have a positive impact on the people and the planet.
We actively strive to reduce and offset our environmental impact.
As a growing company, it has always been important for us to better understand our global environmental footprint in order to reduce and offset our impact. We worked with an external expert agency to do a full product life cycle assessment and confirm where to focus our efforts. What we discovered is that the bulk of our impact (81%) comes from agriculture. Our environmental responsibility thus translates into 3 main commitments.
We only use high quality, non-GMO, certified organic ingredients (Ecocert Canada and USDA Organic stamp of approval) which are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals that are harmful to the planet.
We solely offer snacks made from 100% plant-based ingredients which - besides being cruelty-free - have a significantly lower environmental impact than animal-derived ones;
We are also looking into the broader implementation of sustainable farming practices - agroforestry and regenerative agriculture to name a few - in collaboration with our suppliers.
We value mutually beneficial relationships with our employees and external partners.
As a team of 60+ employees and valued partners, customers and suppliers, it has always been important for us to provide a great working environment and to be mindful of the social impacts behind our choice of partners and suppliers. In line with our values, our social responsibility translates into 3 main commitments.
We cultivate a progressive work culture in which employee involvement and employee ownership is encouraged.
We promote a culture of transparency and dialogue with our employees and with our suppliers, ensuring that our business activities contribute to building an open, safe and stimulating workplace.
We support local communities through company wide volunteering activities and product donations to charitable organizations throughout the year.
