Climate Change Is An Existential Threat
There’s no sugarcoating it — climate change is the greatest threat facing humanity. If we’re going to reverse course, we all have to make more sustainable, responsible choices — now. At Hass, we want to be leaders in the fight. We measure and offset our carbon footprint with every decision we make. And we’re showing other companies that becoming Climate Neutral Certified isn’t just possible, it’s essential.
First Things First: Reducing Our Emissions
We minimize our carbon emissions as much as possible. To do that, we had to start from the ground floor of our operations. Our first step? Using GOTS-certified facilities in Los Angeles to produce our products.
Materials have a major impact on the environment, too. Synthetic materials can contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to our health and can end up in our air and water, further endangering our ecosystems. They also produce more carbon emissions than organic and natural alternatives. We only use the best of the best. The clothing we dream up is made with natural fabrics, ethically sourced silk, or upcycled textiles, which is better for you and the planet.
We Offset Everything Else
To achieve carbon negative status, Climate Neutral calculated our scope 1 (direct emissions: sources that are owned or controlled by Hass), 2 (indirect emissions: purchased electricity, steam, heating, and cooling for own use), and 3 (indirect emissions: indirect emissions occurring in the value chain associated with the production of a specific product) emissions. Because we reduce our carbon footprint throughout our entire supply chain, we’re able to offset more than all of our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. Our carbon offsets pay validated partners to prevent carbon emissions from getting into the atmosphere by engaging in projects like clean energy initiatives or forest preservation. The result is a truly carbon negative product you love to wear from a brand you feel great about supporting.
We Need Your Help
For Hass, Climate Neutral is our follow-through. We’ve made a promise to fight against climate change, and we’re making good on that commitment by offsetting more carbon emissions than we generate. But the truth is — we’re all responsible for the well-being of our planet. It’s going to take everyone working together to hold those in power accountable, rethink how we travel and shop, and eliminate wasteful habits if we’re going to minimize the most disruptive effects of climate change. Together, a net-zero future and a healthy climate are possible.
