Other Sustainability Notes

At BioLite, we’re on a mission to bring Energy Everywhere. But it takes energy to make energy - energy to manufacture and ship our products, to light our office and to travel to our customers. And this consumption of energy produces CO2 emissions that affect us all. As a company dedicated to both people and planet, we take responsibility for our footprint and are committed to mitigating our climate impacts. In early 2015, we underwent an internal carbon impact analysis that identified where and how we are releasing greenhouse gases through both our manufacturing methods and our operations. In parallel with quantifying our emissions, we were able to measure the greenhouse gas reductions resulting from the use of BioLite’s emission-reducing products in sub-Saharan Africa. In November of 2015, BioLite offset the full carbon emissions history of the company and has continued forward with carbon neutral operations each year since. We are proud to be a company that facilitates our own carbon neutrality by both generating and retiring carbon credits, which are independently verified by The Gold Standard, a carbon accreditation foundation. (See our annual Impact Report for more info: bioliteenergy.com/impact2019). In 2019, we co-founded Climate Neutral with our friends at Peak Design to demystify the footprinting process and help other brands take immediate action on their emissions.
