Climate Change affects us all, here’s what we are doing to make sure we are part of the solution and not the problem.
When Sukin first hit the market back in 2007, we were one of the first to say NO to ingredients and processes that can cause harm to you, animals and the environment, creating products that help reduce the demand for harmful ingredients worldwide. In 2008, we decided that we could do one better for the environment and became Carbon Neutral.
Sukin will continue to champion the environment moving forward, giving you peace of mind that the Sukin product you use, will not negatively impact on our precious planet.
But what does ‘carbon neutral’ mean?
It means that we offset each carbon emission that we as a company produce. From the emissions made when transporting our products to store, to running the machines that make our products, to the electricity that powers our offices.
By investing in projects that earn carbon credits for displacing fossil fuel by producing renewable energy, our purchase and retirement of credits from these certified projects ensures that the total carbon output of Sukin is 100% counteracted and guarantees that Sukin does not leave a carbon footprint on this earth.
Over the last 10 years, we have invested in several certified projects that have offset our carbon emissions. Certified means that these carbon credits have been assessed against a third-party standard and independently reviewed against that standard. Importantly when the credits are retired this occurs in a public registry to demonstrate transparency.
Sukin have previously invested in different types of projects including wind energy – creating clean energy from wind generators in China through Carbon Reduction Institute. In 2018 our investment in a new project through Greening Australia’s carbon trading arm - Biodiverse Carbon Conservation (BCC) is in a solar farm in India. This initiative reduces energy poverty in one of the world’s fastest growing nations, creates local employment during construction and displaces coal fired power.
