Sustainability Story

Most products need to be mined and sourced, moulded and cut, and built on an assembly line. We love that Climate Neutral helps us offset our environmental impact of our production, cleanly and quantifiably, as a small brand getting started. The length of a product lifespan varies, and we chose binoculars, designed from the ground up, to have a timeless design and long lifespan. Is your thing used for minutes, days, weeks, months, years, decades, or generations? That factor is key, for the shorter the length, more greenhouse gasses are emitted to produce another, and the faster that thing will sit in a landfill. How long is something useable, and what happens when it is not?

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 :

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

01 Measure

Nocs 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.

1 tCO2e

GHG Scope 2 ?

3 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

154 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

159 tCO2e

02 Offset

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

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to shift the majority of our inbound freight from factory to our fulfillment centers from air to oceanic shipping by the end of 2022.

How We'll Reduce It

We are purchasing larger amounts of product further in advance so that the timeliness of shipping is not as critical.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce the emissions produced by shipping our goods by utilizing existing distribution centers that are geographically closer to our customers.

How We'll Reduce It

We plan to contract with fulfillment companies in order to leverage their more efficient distribution center networks and methodologies.
