Sustainability Story

As a company that makes furniture for kids, we believe it is our responsibly to make brand decisions that will benefit kids' comfort on this planet for generations to come. This starts when we begin to design a product, through production and material inputs, onto our manufacturing facilities and transportation to our consumer, and even how we deal with the product's end of life.

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 :

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

01 Measure

Franklin + Emily 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.

23 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

18 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

224 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

265 tCO2e

02 Offset

Franklin + Emily 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 Franklin + Emily to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions associated with the transportation of materials and customer shipping.

How We'll Reduce It

Analysis of current distances travelled and seek closer alternatives or batching shipments to minimize transport frequencies.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan on decreasing waste/trim from production methods.

How We'll Reduce It

We're working on having all our pieces placed on a master list to then optimize yield (less waste) across our collection, and not just individual pieces.

In Progress Reductions

01

85%

What We’re Reducing

Electricity use in production facility.

How We'll Reduce It

We moved to a larger facilities with huge windows that allow us to work with natural lights most of the day, but has a greenhouse effect that will require us to implement cooling during the summer months, and the goal would be to avoid traditional AC.

02

90%

What We’re Reducing

Reexamine goods used from overseas and focus on sourcing materials from US-based companies in order to reduce travel of raw materials and therefore reduce our carbon footprint of inbound good.

How We'll Reduce It

Looking at all materials used in our collection that are manufactured oversees and find like-minded companies in the US that can make a similar or better product, and thus decrease the overall impact of each product from a raw material footprint POV.

03

70%

What We’re Reducing

Reduce emissions from shipping individual items across the country.

How We'll Reduce It

Consolidation of items to fulfillment warehouses in 2-3 cities based on sales data to reduce the footprint left by shipping products individually across the country.
