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 :

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

01 Measure

Amika 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.

210 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

71 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

4,833 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

5,113 tCO2e

02 Offset

Amika 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 Amika to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Total Investment in Carbon Credits

$85,418

Amika's credits came from:

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.

5,113 tCO2e

03 Reduce

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

Mid Term Targets

Amika has committed to reducing 2021 emissions 50% by 2030.

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

Amika 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

We plan to reduce emissions from our packaging materials. We are transitioning all haircare packaging from Virgin Plastic to PCR.

How We'll Reduce It

We are no longer producing any virgin plastic, except for two products which are still in stability testing. The rest of our assortment will have 90% PCR in the bottles and up to 30% PCR in our hair masks jars.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from our newly acquired warehouse.

How We'll Reduce It

We will install energy star certified appliances to reduce our emissions to a minimum as we begin to utilize the new warehouse. At the moment, we are using it for storage but as it expands and becomes a functioning distribution center we will upgrade it.

03

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from our employee commute, specifically automobile travel.

How We'll Reduce It

We will encourage our employees to carpool to the office to save energy with an incentive. We expect that this will reduce employee commute emissions by 40% for an overall emissions reduction of ~1%.
