The manufacturer joins a growing movement of over 260 brands achieving the standard, based on a far-reaching three step process which comprises: measuring greenhouse gas emissions, purchasing verified carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions during 2022 and beyond.
Together the brands have so far measured and offset 783,768 tonnes of carbon. As part of this year’s commitments, Konftel will cut the use of plastic bags in some of its most popular products by 50 per cent, look to increase renewable energy at main manufacturing facilities and also reduce car commuting of staff by 40 per cent.
Stefan Eriksson, CMO, Konftel (pictured), said, “Buying from Konftel ensures our customers have a clear climate conscience that there are zero net carbon emissions from our manufacturing processes. We believe every company should be climate neutral and invest in our planet. It’s about measuring, offsetting and reducing emissions to help the world become net-zero by 2050.”
Austin Whitman, CEO of Climate Neutral, said, “Konftel and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions. Our label helps consumers identify these brands. It’s a recognizable and trusted symbol that turns everyday purchases into meaningfully positive climate action.”
