Sustainability Story

Blueland is on a mission to eliminate single-use plastic packaging from our everyday products, starting with our homes. From the very beginning, sustainability has been core to our mission. Our products are designed as a reusable, refillable system that has already helped divert over 1 billion single-use plastic bottles from landfills and oceans. Our tablet technology allows us to ship smaller and lighter products compared to traditional, liquid based cleaners. This means we can cut down on emissions when getting our products to our customers. We're always working to cut down on our emissions, but for everything we're still working on, we're proud to work with Climate Neutral to offset our emissions.

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 :

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

01 Measure

Blueland 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 ?

2 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

9,469 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

9,471 tCO2e

02 Offset

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

Total Investment in Carbon Credits

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.

9,471 tCO2e

03 Reduce

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

Mid Term Targets

Blueland 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

Blueland 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 through greater bulk purchasing across our supply chain.

How We'll Reduce It

We will conduct a company-wide sourcing analysis to identify areas of improvement from past ordering procedures. We will work cross-functionally to determine minimum order sizes and we will discourage SKU proliferation

02

What We’re Reducing

We will reduce emissions by increasing the amount of recycled paper content in all of our paper-based components.

How We'll Reduce It

We will audit all of our paper-based components and issue new RFP to all our suppliers

In Progress Reductions

01

25%

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce the carbon footprint associated with the raw materials for each of our plastic spray bottles.

How We'll Reduce It

We are investigating moving to recycled materials for our bottles that would lessen the total amount of energy required to produce the bottles in addition to helping reduce use of virgin plastic.

02

100%

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce the kWh of grid energy associated per unit with our formulated product manufacturing (e.g., cleaning tablets themselves!)

How We'll Reduce It

Our manufacturers will transition toward solar panels installed on site and will consume less grid energy.

03

100%

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce the carbon footprint associated with the purchase of capital goods for our headquarters.

How We'll Reduce It

We will focus on driving down the capital purchases of furniture and electronics for the office, particularly given the move toward working from home.
