Black+Blum has joined 1% for the Planet and also noted that it is committed to becoming Climate Neutral Certified in 2021, for 2020 emissions.
As a member of 1% for the Planet, Black+Blum said it pledges to donate at least 1% of its annual sales revenue to support environmental non-profit organizations.
To achieve its commitment to becoming Climate Neutral Certified, the company will be working with the independent non-profit organization Climate Neutral. Together they will measure the company’s carbon footprint, and Black+Blum will then offset it in its entirety by purchasing quality carbon credits, as well as planning to reduce emissions in the future.
“While our designs help people be more environmentally friendly in their everyday life, they obviously don’t solve the huge challenges the world now faces,” said Dan Black, founder and lead designer at Black+Blum. “We wanted to do more. By joining 1% for the Planet, we commit to giving something back to make a better world. By committing to work towards becoming Climate Neutral Certified, we want to make sure we fully offset the CO2 emissions caused in our everyday operations and product manufacturing.”
The 1% for the Planet membership label will be rolled out on all Black+Blum packaging throughout the coming months. The Climate Neutral Certified label will appear once Black+Blum has passed the Climate Neutral assessment and their emissions for 2020 have been offset.
