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 :

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

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

584 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

22 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

9,217 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

9,823 tCO2e

Through electrification and efficiency improvements

02

What We’re Reducing

We will work to decrease the carbon footprint of our packaging, which has implications across purchased goods, upstream shipping, and downstream shipping.

How We'll Reduce It

We will begin to measure the differences in carbon footprint between various packaging materials and to incorporate this into our decision-making, with a goal of reducing our overall CO2e emissions.
