The consumption of meat is causing detrimental harm to our planet but a Swedish burger chain is hoping to do its part in curbing this devastation with its climate-positive burgers. These burgers are no different in composition to traditional beef burgers, but their constructions and the steps taken by the Max Burger chain is what makes them climate-positive. To ensure the new burgers can make a change, Max Burger plans to plant enough trees to offset 110% of the carbon emissions the business produces.

This burger initiative expands on the company's existing carbon offsetting model, which includes the introduction of wind-based power and the inclusion of more plant-based menu items. However, the new program will also account for the carbon emissions its guests output, hence the extra 10% the company is trying to offset.
