Sustainability Story

Here at Native Maps, our main material is paper - and we choose our paper very carefully. All of our paper is made with hydroelectric energy from the family-owned, US-based French Paper Company. All of our paper has recycled or FSC certified content. We love paper because it is infinitely recyclable, so we transitioned all of our shipping materials to recycled paper and cardboard - which also means that our packaging is 100% recyclable. Offsetting our carbon footprint is the final step in owning - and taking pride in - our process from start to finish.

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 :

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

01 Measure

Native Maps 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 ?

4 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

7 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

11 tCO2e

02 Offset

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