THE CLIMATE CHANGE FIGHT
As a Climate Neutral Certified company since 2019, we've measured Avocado's annual cradle-to-consumer emissions, offset them by investing in climate change solutions, and started taking real action to reduce our emissions. We also recognize our offsets and reductions aren't enough. Solving climate change will require systemic solutions. That's why, through our partnership with Ceres and the American Sustainable Business Network, we also advocate for state and federal policies that support equitable solutions to the climate crisis.
WHO IS CLIMATE NEUTRAL?
Climate Neutral is an independent nonprofit organization accelerating the transition to a low-carbon world by putting a price on carbon emissions. They're leading the fight against climate change by helping brands measure, reduce, and offset their cradle-to-consumer emissions. Avocado was the first mattress brand in the world to be Climate Neutral Certified.
There is no livable planet without action. Climate Neutral helps brands declare that eliminating their carbon is a fundamental act of doing business. If everybody does it, together we can: (1) Cut carbon immediately to help halt our warming trend. (2) Drive additional funding to low carbon technologies. (3) Send proof to policymakers that businesses are ready to act. Climate Neutral provides a simple and straightforward way to become part of the global climate solution.
HOW IT WORKS
Avocado measured its Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-consumer greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which includes all emissions from making and delivering their products and services. With Climate Neutral, small and medium companies self-attested to their measurement data, and large companies had their data verified by a third party. Learn more about GHG measurement boundaries, data requirements, and verifications in the Climate Neutral Standard.
Avocado has committed to reduction targets and specific action plans to reduce operational and value chain emissions within the next 12-24 months. These actions align to the Climate Neutral Standard. We're committed to reducing scope 1 and 2 by 50% from their 2021 level by 2030. Visit our Climate Neutral profile to read about our Reduction Action plan.
Avocado is investing outside of our value chain in high quality, verified projects that meet the Climate Neutral Standard. These projects accelerate climate progress and compensate for our current GHG emissions as our reduction actions are implemented. Our carbon offset partner is the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
We proudly display the Climate Neutral Certified logo on our website, on our product tags, and on our packaging.
