Climate compensation 氣候補償

Gearing up for renewable energy sources

Climate change is possibly the biggest challenge we face in our time. As a global company, with production and sales taking place around the world, we have an undeniable responsibility to reduce our emissions of greenhouses gases. For this reason we are continuously working to improve our energy efficiency, increase the proportion of green electricity we use, and plan and optimise transportation methods. Our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by 25 per cent by the year 2020 and become carbon neutral at the latest in 2025.

Climate calculations increase awareness

Climate compensation is a way that we can work towards reducing our effects on the environment. All our garments in the Eco-Shell series are also climate compensated.

That we engage in climate compensation does not mean that we do not take responsibility for reducing our emissions, actually quite the opposite. Climate compensation has helped us to see which parts of production are in the greatest need of improvement.

Support for renewable and certified energy projects

There are various ways to climate compensate, and we have chosen to support renewable energy projects that have been examined and verified by the UN. The projects have also been certified according to the Gold Standard, an independent quality assessment of carbon dioxide emission reduction projects that is supported by more than 60 non-profit organisations, including Greenpeace International and WWF International.

Certification places high demands on the quality and credibility of the projects and this means that we can be sure that they will achieve the climate benefits that they aim for.

為可更新能源做好準備

氣候變遷可能是我們這時代所面臨的最大考驗,作為一間全球化的企業,我們的生產線與銷售點遍佈世界各地,因此對於降低溫室氣體排放量是責無旁貸的。正因如此,我們持續努力改善能源效率,增加環保電力的比例,規畫並優化運送方式。我們的目標是在2020年降低25%的碳排放,並且在2025年達到碳中和。

計算氣候補償提高環保意識

氣候補償是我們減輕對環境造成影響的一種方式。我們的Eco-Shell全線服飾均為氣候補償。

從事氣候補償並不表示在減少碳排放方面可以鬆懈,事實上恰好相反,氣候補償反而讓我們得以檢視哪個製造環節仍須改善。

支持可再生與已認證能源計畫

氣候補償的方式有很多種,我們選擇的是支持由聯合國所審核和認證的可更新能源計畫,這些計畫同時也受到黃金標準的認證。黃金標準是一項針對減碳計畫所成立的獨立品質評估機制,由超過60個非牟利組織所支持,其中包含綠色和平組織和世界自然基金會。

能源計畫的品質和公信力都必須達到一個高門檻才能獲得認證,因此我們可以相信這些計畫確實能達到它們預設的氣候利益。
