Launching at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (which begins on 18 June), non-profit organization Climate Neutral will certify brands that meet extensive criteria and educate others on the value of offsetting carbon emissions. Carbon Neutral also wants to demonstrate that achieving a green mission doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, the cost to offset a winter jacket (which requires 15 kg CO2e to produce) is only $0.09; and sneakers only cost three cents more. With Peak Design and BioLite as the first two certified brands, the outdoor industry seems to be Carbon Neutral’s primary focus. Read more about what qualifies a brand, how they plan to advocate for the environment and more at their website.
