Going Carbon Neutral with SimpliZero
We’re tackling unavoidable carbon emissions by investing in offset projects focusing in renewable energy, forest conservation and energy efficiency. These projects prevent future carbon emissions and remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere.
We want you to be part of our carbon neutral journey.
You can now experience our carbon neutral journey across your shopping experience. Every carbon neutral product can be identified by a ‘carbon neutral’ visual on the product page.
Click on the visual to view the exact amount of carbon offset for that particular product and to explore the projects we invest in.
How do we select offset Projects?
We worked with SimpliZero to calculate the carbon emissions from each stage of our supply chain. This enabled us to measure our carbon footprint for each product and find the best suited carbon offset projects.
Our approach for carbon neutrality is to offset our carbon footprint along our supply chain and have a mix of Reforestation, Renewable Energy and Community projects. We worked with Green Story to handpick projects based on their type, location, and benefits. Each project supports multiple UN sustainable development goals in addition to offsetting CO2.
All our projects are rigorously verified and certified through The Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). These independent verifiers make sure that the projects are working to deliver the benefits they promise.
It’s no coincidence that these projects create meaningful impact throughout the communities that our supply chain touches.
See where we’re contributing below:
PROTECTING OUR FORESTS
Avoided Deforestation Peru, Peru
A conservation and sustainable harvesting project in the Madre de Dios region in southeast Peru. Works to improve carbon sequestration in the region.
INVESTING IN RENEWABLE ENERGY
Telangana Solar Power, India
This is a 6 Megawatt solar power project in Kolanupaka, Telangana. The project has demonstrated the viability of grid connected solar farms to support improved air quality, energy security, improved local livelihoods and sustainable renewable energy industry development in the southern region of India.
HELPING OUR COMMUNITIES
Heqing Solar Cooker, China
This project provides local residents in the rural area of Zhangye, Gansu province in Northwestern China the opportunity to switch to solar cookers to use for their daily cooking tasks in place of coal powered cookstoves.
We wanted to go the extra mile and we’re so excited we took our first step to carbon neutrality with SimpliZero!
