Atlas Olive Oils is Carbon Neutral Company
A development that helps the Country.
CO2 Neutral Company
PAS2060 (certificate N°22/156)
We teach and help farmers.
We save water.
Agro Health is highly concerned by water saving: we installed the most advanced systems of drip irrigation, and we use a special rock (brought from a South American volcano) mixed into the soil to keep water available for a longer time at the olive plant roots. Moreover, we have built the 1st basin in Morocco (retention capacity of 46,000 m3 of water) totally covered (using a German technology) to prevent evaporation of water. Water is precious for everyone and Agro Health knows it.
We care about our workers.
The care to our workers is one of our top priorities. We never employ children, we use tractors with air conditioning in the cabin (to be able to work under high temperatures and avoid respiratory problems due to sandy air), and we take charge of our workers social and medical care. The good health of our workers is also Agro Health’s good health.
We plant olive groves.
Because Morocco is a semi-desertic country, planting large areas of olive trees creates a local micro-climate and slows down the invasion of the neighbouring desert. We have made a recent application to obtain carbon credits from the United Nations because each Hectare of high-density olive trees absorbs 3 Tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). By planting vast olive groves, Agro Health contributes to the fight against desertification.
carbon neutral company
Atlas Olive Oils goes CO2-NEUTRAL.
ATLAS OLIVE OILS has been certified “CARBON NEUTRAL COMPANY” meaning that our business absorbs more CO2 than what it releases into the atmosphere, and we aim to achieve a fixed reduction in emissions along the entire value chain.
Following a dedicated 10-year program, we have achieved our main environmental sustainability goal: to produce zero-emission olive oil products. For this reason, we are one of the very first olive oil companies in the world to be certified carbon neutral according to the internationally recognized PAS2060 standard (certificate No. 22/156).
To further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change, we have built a photovoltaic system that allows us to produce the energy used by our company and have invested in a project of a wind farm building in India.
We also no longer ship our products by air to avoid pollution as much as possible, but do so by sea or by truck in a few cases.
We are proud of our environmental policy and of what we have achieved, but we will not to stop here. We are aware that the responsibility of building a better future falls on us who with our actions contribute to make our development more and more sustainable every day.
Proud of my Italian oils I had a little reticence in trying a Moroccan oil. With my big surprise I found it really delicious. I used it raw, but I’ve to admit, it’s great for frying too. It has very hi smoke point that makes my ‘fritto misto’ lovely golden and crunchy. I highly recommend it!

I bought this oil as I was attracted by its elegant and unusual bottle. Such a precious container had to contain a very special product and I was right! The bottle on your table is a pleasure for your eyes and when you pour it, pervasive perfumes invites your dining companions to taste it and they feel privileged to savor such a rare nectar. My guests are special and I love being a perfect gracious hostess.
I discovered this great oil when looking for a good oil for my olive oil ice cream. It resulted to be the best one. Now I use it as a topping to add savory complexity to many of my sweet treats. Delicious!
