Protecting Gaea "Mother earth"
Climate Change is a reality that demands a higher level of responsibility from all of us. In recognising the severity of this issue, GAEA has minimized its impact on the climate by measuring and counterbalancing carbon emissions (CO2) of its olive oil products, in cooperation with the Swiss organization “Myclimate”.
Measurements of carbon emissions are taken during the entire production cycle. This includes the cultivation and transportation of olives, the production and bottling of the olive oil and, finally, the distribution of the product from Greece and abroad. As a result, the GAEA Extra Virgin Olive Oils "Planet" and" Fresh" have minimized their negative impact on the environment and have become the first Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the world certified as Carbon Neutral.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization which believes that every consumer should be able to make an informed choice about whether to consume genetically-modified organisms. Analytical testing of seed, crops, ingredients, and products is done at critical points of the production chain to verify that the processes and practices employed by all participants meet the non-GMO Standard. GAEA products are Non-GMO project verified.
