Sustainability Story

Debuted in January 2021, we are a New York City- based design collective with a new vision for elevated accessories. Progress is our promise. Releasing one product at a time, we're devoted to conscientious craftsmanship, responsible materials, and design without compromise. Instead of following the standard seasonal schedule, we release one design at a time so we can conduct myriad rounds of prototyping and market testing, ensuring that our end results deliver on both practicality and superior aesthetics. Integral to our approach is transparent construction: all our styles are engineered without the unnecessary plastic fillers that are typically inserted into handbag linings. This approach relies purely on the quality and integrated structure of our raw materials, pushing us to maintain rigorous standards of craftsmanship to achieve unparalleled functionality. Collaboration is what makes our innovative structures possible. By inviting our production partners to engage with us in ideation through production, we are able to track and monitor the social, environmental, and human impact of each bag. Since the beginning of 2021, all our bags have been produced in a carbon-neutral, solar-powered facility in Italy renowned for Venetian craftsmanship. It all starts with the raw materials. For every project, we spend months searching the globe for best-in-class leather and textile partners who are as committed to sustainable, low-impact processes as we are. Our leathers are entirely sourced from food byproducts and 100 percent traceable. They are produced in a scope-C gold-standard tannery certified by the Leather Working Group, of which there are only 13 worldwide. This certification guarantees that from rawhide to finished leather, every step of the process is held to the highest standards of environmental impact. Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers (four times stronger than cotton), and is ideal for constructing durable accessories to last a lifetime. Our hemp is cultivated with minimal water and chemical intervention, naturally dyed for waterproofing, and grown and finished in a single factory. Our decades-old hemp producer was one of the first in the industry to succeed in organic cultivation and become certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. And Beyond. We take the details seriously, evaluating the environmental impact of every single ingredient (even our zipper tapes are recycled). We incentivize customers to opt for minimal packaging with a discount, but if they request more extensive packaging, we have created an FSC-certified greyboard box that can be reused for years to come. We source deadstock fabric from our hemp supplier to make our dust cloth, which can also be repurposed as a bandana or table cloth.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.

This certification covers business activities and operations for the following brands :

advene achieved Climate Neutral Certification as part of 's certification process. 's measurement, offsetting and reduction plans fully account for advene's 2021 emissions

01 Measure

advene measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

Emissions from energy used in buildings, fleets, and equipment.

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

1 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

Emissions from raw materials, manufacturing, shipping, air travel, and other activities in the supply chain.

76 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

The sum of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

78 tCO2e

02 Offset

advene invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables advene to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Total Investment in Carbon Credits

$936.00

advene's credits came from:

Landfill Gas ?

Emissions Offset ?
Offset equivalency

For reference, reducing a footprint by 1000 tonnes is roughly equal to removing 230 passenger vehicles from the road for a year.

78 tCO2e

03 Reduce

advene has set targets and identified actions to reduce their emissions from operations and their supply chain. These actions will enable advene to emit fewer emissions in the future.

Mid Term Targets

advene has committed to reducing emissions by .

This target is aligned with global trajectories to limit climate warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Mid Term Targets

This target is aligned with global trajectories to limit climate warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Reduction Actions

advene is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

Work with manufacturers to audit emissions and set a reduction strategy

How We'll Reduce It

We will audit the water and energy consumption of our development and production processes with our suppliers and manufacturers, and work on an annual reduction plan with them, along with an annual public report by Q4 2023.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to upcycle waste from productions of our core products for special design projects.

How We'll Reduce It

We will work with our suppliers, manufactuerers and our customers and communities to ideate and execute special project specifically designed for the production waste by the end of 2023.
