CarbonCents partnership to help Titan Farms cut carbon footprint

A partnership with CarbonCents, a technology firm specializing in carbon footprint tracking and reduction solutions, should help Titan Farms reduce its carbon imprint.

The collaboration for the Ridge Spring, South Carolina-based grower-shipper marks a significant milestone in Titan Farms’ commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability, according to a news release.

The decision to join forces with CarbonCents stems from Titan Farms’ dedication to understanding and mitigating its carbon footprint.

“We chose to partner with CarbonCents to help us set baseline emissions standards,” Chalmers Carr, Titan’s CEO and president, said in the release. “Without an understanding of where we stand today, we cannot set reduction targets in a realistic and informed manner.”

Titan grows peaches, bell peppers, broccoli, eggplant and strawberries.

CarbonCents will play a pivotal role in implementing their cutting-edge solutions at Titan. The process involves consolidating all energy consumption data as well as collecting data on other emission-related sources, and utilizing CarbonCents’ proprietary software, “Carbon BI,” to analyze consumption patterns across fields, facilities, and supply chains. This comprehensive approach will enable Titan to identify areas for improvement and implement targeted strategies to reduce emissions effectively, according to the release.

CarbonCents’ involvement ensures compliance with environmental standards and facilitates transparency in reporting carbon footprint to external parties.

“CarbonCents will not only compile our data but also verify its accuracy and audit for incongruences,” Carr said in the release. “Their expertise will ensure that all data shared with external parties is accurate and understandable.”

Looking ahead, Titan Farms aims to engage stakeholders, customers, and communities in its CO2 footprint reduction efforts. By leading the charge in environmental sustainability, Titan hopes to inspire others in the industry to join their journey towards emissions reduction, according to the release.

“Our long-term strategic vision is centered on becoming a leader in environmental stewardship within the agricultural sector,” Carr said in the release. “Through rigorous data collection, strategic goal setting, and collaborative efforts, we are committed to achieving overall emissions reduction throughout our supply chains.”

As Titan Farms enters the data collection phase with CarbonCents, the company remains steadfast in its pursuit of carbon neutrality and net-zero emissions. By leveraging innovative technology and fostering industrywide collaboration, Titan Farms is poised to make a significant impact on environmental sustainability in agriculture, according to the release.

Founded in 1999 by Chalmers and Lori Anne Carr, Titan Farms is a grower, packer, shipper and processor of fresh peaches and vegetables. Titan is the largest peach grower on the East Coast, with more than 6,200 acres of peaches, 600 acres of bell peppers, 1,000 acres of broccoli and 36 acres of eggplant.
