Kammok measured and offset its 2020 carbon footprint and is working to reduce future emissions
AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 22, 2021) – In response to the urgency of the climate crisis, Kammok, designer of high-performance outdoor gear to elevate time outside, is proud to announce that it is officially Climate Neutral Certified. Kammok joins 229 other brands that have earned the standard by measuring and offsetting all of their 2020 carbon emissions and reducing future emissions.
Climate Neutral Certified is the leading consumer label designating carbon neutrality. It is carried by brands that have voluntarily stepped up to take responsibility for the greenhouse gas emissions generated in the production, operations, and shipping of their goods and services.
“Our brand promise is that we create and deliver Adventure Grade. Better Made™ products," says Kammok CEO and Founder, Greg McEvilly. "We believe better made products contribute to more human flourishing, and this is why we are excited to go Climate Neutral. We measured and offset our entire 2020 carbon footprint, and are working to reduce our future emissions. We emitted approximately 7,033 tonnes of carbon, and then offset those emissions by investing in climate change solutions, including renewable wind energy farms and rainforest conservation. Now we're working to reduce our future emissions by minimizing shipping inefficiencies by 25% in 2022, and incorporating more Bluesign approved fabrics and recycled materials into our finished products.”
“Kammok and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions,” says Climate Neutral CEO, Austin Whitman. “Our label helps consumers identify these brands. It’s a recognizable and trusted symbol that turns everyday purchases into meaningfully positive climate action.”
Climate Neutral’s certification is based on internationally recognized standards for carbon measurement, neutrality, and offsetting. Each brand must measure Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-customer greenhouse gas emissions for the prior calendar year. Then a brand must buy verified carbon credits to offset its entire footprint. This directs investment into critical carbon sequestration projects such as forest conservation, renewable energy, and carbon capture technologies. Finally, brands commit to a reduction action plan to cut future emissions within a 12-24 month timeline, reporting progress on those plans annually. All of the brand’s data is publicly available on Climate Neutral’s website. The process is repeated annually when companies must re-certify.
