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.

GHG Scope 1 ?
GHG Protocol Scope 1

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

5 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.

1,235 tCO2e

Total Emissions ?
Total Carbon Emissions

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

1,243 tCO2e

Current Year Reduction Actions

01

What We’re Reducing

We will reduce the proportion of inbound freight that we ship by air cargo, instead relying on more efficient sea cargo to transport our goods. With the global cargo chaos in 2021, we moved backwards on this metric as we shipped more cargo via air.

How We'll Reduce It

This will require us to plan production earlier so that we can accommodate the longer-lead time for sea shipments.

02

What We’re Reducing

We will use sustainable textile dying materials on all our new textile products releasing in 2023 to reduce water waste and unsustainable dying processes.

How We'll Reduce It

We will find a supplier who is able to offer energy and water efficient e-dye material, and source and use this material in 100% of our textile production in 2023.
