United Exports was initially established as a stone fruit export business in 2002 and has since entered all facets of the production process: from breeding and planting, to packing, sales and delivery of blueberries and stone fruit. United Exports currently has a number of Carbon Heroes production sites in South Africa and Zambia. All of them have their own profile on the Carbon Heroes website to give recognition to each business who meticulously calculate their carbon footprint.
Located in Kempton Park, Gauteng, the United Exports Packhouse embraces a circular waste economy and implements various initiatives to reduce, re-use and recycle waste. The packhouse also supports a local community crèche and retirement home through donations.
Through this digital recognition platform, we celebrate the Carbon Heroes taking part in the Confronting Climate Change (CCC) Initiative for their considerable effort in calculating and understanding their carbon emissions.
Each Carbon Hero has their own digital QR code that can be displayed on their website and other marketing material, linking directly to their individual profile on the Carbon Heroes website.
The QR code provides a simple and innovative way for customers to learn about each Carbon Hero’s carbon offsetting and other sustainability initiatives, as well as engage with them on social media and other marketing channels.
With the Carbon Heroes QR code we aim to support a global transition towards sustainable development by recognising and celebrating the positive environmental impact of each Carbon Hero. By having a transparent display of their commitment to reducing emissions, Carbon Heroes demonstrate their dedication to a sustainable future, while building trust in their brand.
We rely on each Carbon Hero to provide accurate and reliable information for their page, but we do not independently verify the information provided. Carbon Heroes will not be held liable for inaccurate or unreliable information displayed on the platform, and reserve the right to revoke the use of the Carbon Heroes platform in the case that this is found.
