What is Climate Neutral?
Climate Neutral is a nonprofit organization working to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world by recruiting companies to publicly measure, reduce, and offset their carbon emissions. Klean Kanteen has completed this rigorous 3-step process and is now 100% carbon neutral in the manufacture and delivery of its products worldwide. The Climate Neutral Certified label empowers socially conscious purchasing and has the potential to harness the buying power of millions worldwide who currently express concern about climate change.
The first step in reducing and setting greenhouse gas emissions is identifying the sources. Klean’s GHG emissions profile is shown in the chart below.
Our near-term plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions includes:
- Renewable energy in manufacturing
- Reduce primary packaging material use
- Increase recycled content in all primary packaging
Buying carbon offsets is one of the most immediate climate actions a company can take. We purchase offsets for GHG emissions we aren't currently able to eliminate. All Klean's reductions through offsetting meet the “big six” attributes of quality carbon credits: real, permanent, quantifiable, verifiable, enforceable, and additional. These offsets are verified through Verified Carbon Standard, American Carbon Registry, Climate Action Reserve, Gold Standard, and Clean Development Mechanism.
