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 :

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

01 Measure

Outer 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 ?

2 tCO2e

GHG Scope 3 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 3

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

6021 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

6024 tCO2e

02 Offset

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

Total Investment in Carbon Credits

$33,373

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions from packaging and products used, both in terms of packaging we use for the products we make, as well as through the swag and other products we use internally, replacing them with reusable or regenerative alternatives.

How We'll Reduce It

We'll eliminate excess materials where possible, use reusable boxes for D2C shipments, reconsider every polybag/hang tag, revisit our employee welcome kit, seek alternatives to single-use swag items, & use eco-friendly materials & manufacturing processes.

02

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce emissions through the energy used at our office and by our employees.

How We'll Reduce It

We will establish energy management practices like outlet timers, start-up & shut-down procedures, temperature set points, & employee training. Outer will have remote-optional/WFH options for select teams.
