We love our planet and we own our responsibility to take care of it by doing everything we can to minimize our impacts and use our business as a force for good.
Our Business Has an Environmental Impact. Period.
We measure our impact so that we can take action to reduce it.
This self-reflexive process drives decisions in all aspects of our business from product design, to supply chain and all the way through to how we get our products in your hands. It even defines where we put our charitable giving dollars.
Why do we operate like this? Certainly not because it’s easy! We do it because we believe it is our core responsibility as a business.
And reducing impact in a meaningful way can’t be done alone. We rely on a trifecta of partners to help guide our efforts and keep our standards sky high and trending ever upward.
We believe that all businesses should be accountable for their greenhouse gas emissions. As a Climate Neutral Certified company since 2020, we measure and report annual emissions for all activities from cradle to customer, show progress on science-aligned reduction targets, and contribute to projects beyond our operations and value chain that avoid or reduce emissions equal to 100% of our measured emissions.
