Sustainability Story

In addition to becoming carbon neutral certified Modkat is working to reduce our plastic usage by using recycled plastic and recycles ocean plastic in our products. In addition for every product Modkat ships, we purchase carbon offsets through our partner Ecocart. Our contributions go directly to the Tri-City Forest Project, which protects a spruce forest in Massachusetts that captures over 100,000 tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide each year.

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 :

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

01 Measure

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

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

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

0 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

3,395 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

3,395 tCO2e

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce packaging in our products.

How We'll Reduce It

We will replace any plastic bags inside our packaging with none or with recycled or biodegradable option.

02

What We’re Reducing

Reduce last mile delivery emissions by reducing single-item shipments or optimizing when and how you send out shipments.

How We'll Reduce It

We will work with a new 3PL that can put additional items inside our bigger products boxes so they can ship multiple items in one box. We will promote selling "bundles" so there are more items being shipped in one box vs many.
