Our sleeping mats, pillows, sleeping bags, liners, booties as well as our operations are carbon offset with myclimate. In 2021 our mats were the first and only climate neutral ones on the market. Tents, backpacks, gear bags, packsacks and the accessories will follow. Our goal is to be completely climate neutral by 2024.
For a climate-neutral product, all climate-impacting emissions along the life cycle are taken into account. This means from the production of the raw materials to the use of the product and the subsequent disposal or recycling. The amount of CO2 equivalents (global warming potential) calculated in this way is reduced in high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects. The computation of our footprint with myclimate also enables us to further reduce our emissions.
Reducing CO2 emissions by preventing deforestation. Specifically, the conservation of shrubland and savannah in Tanzania. This climate conservation project secures the land rights of the indigenous population of the Hadza and the Datooga. They manage large tracts of land themselves and determine how they are utilized. One focus is on the conservation of forests.
Reduced forest fragmentation leaves carbon in the forest ecosystem and thus contributes to the preservation of a natural basin (nature-based solution). At the same time, the project helps to preserve habitats for wildlife and their connectivity and to prevent zoonose.
