Going Carbon Neutral with SimpliZero

Here at Kangarama, we understand our earth is precious. As a brand with global operations, we have a responsibility to do right by mother nature, our people and our environment. Our commitment to the planet is evident in our recycled polyester fabric, the use of environmentally friendly dyes and our compostable packaging. But we aren’t 100% there yet.

We’re transparent about the fact our sustainability journey is a continuous one. While we work towards our sustainability goals, we’ve partnered with SimpliZero to offset our emissions.

 

Working towards tackling climate change

The fashion industry is the planet’s third largest polluter, releasing more carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent emissions per year than shipping and aviation. These emissions are rising quicker than the planet can regulate, causing devastating long term changes to the climate.

By using eco-friendly fabrics and employing sustainable manufacturing practices, we significantly reduce our CO2 emissions. However, with some emissions being unavoidable, it’s going to take some time until we are able to reduce them to net zero. This is where carbon offsets come in.

We’re tackling our CO2 emissions by investing

in offset projects such as:

Renewable Energy

Energy Efficiency

Forest Conservation

These green projects prevent future carbon emissions and remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere.
Carbon offset credits are purchased from these projects equal to our unavoidable emissions. This provides crucial funding for these projects and allows them to thrive. In return, our products are made carbon neutral from ‘seed to shelf’. These projects help us balance our emissions.

Be part of our carbon neutral journey

You can now experience our carbon neutral journey across the Kangarama website. Each of our carbon neutral products can be identified by a ‘carbon neutral’ visual. When you click on this visual, you’ll be able to see the exact amount of carbon offset for that product and explore the important projects we invest in.

How It Works

Every order confirmation email has a ‘carbon neutral’ button allowing you to click and learn more about your carbon neutral order and the communities you’ve supported through the offset projects. You’ll also receive an official carbon offset certificate from SimpliZero with a unique transaction ID to validate the offset.

Selecting our offset projects

Working with SimpliZero, we were able to calculate the CO2 emissions at each stage of our supply chain. This enabled us to measure our carbon footprint for each product and find the most suitable carbon offset projects.

To become carbon neutral, we will be offsetting our carbon footprint along our supply chain. This includes a mix of Reforestation, Renewable Energy and Community projects. Green Story helped us trace our green impact through our products’ lifecycle and handpick projects based on their type, location and benefits.

Each project chosen supports multiple UN sustainable development goals in addition to offsetting CO2 and are rigorously verified and certified through The Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard. These independent verifiers make sure each project is working to deliver the benefits they promise.

Our Projects

The projects we have chosen create meaningful impact throughout the communities our supply chain touches.

Protecting our forests

To protect our forests we are contributing to Mount Sandy Conservation in Australia. Nestled between the Coorong National Park and Lake Albert in South Australia, this project protects one of the last pockets of bush and wetlands in the region.

Investing in renewable energy

We have chosen Harmanlik Wind Power Plant in Turkey to invest in renewable energy. With 50 Megawatts of installed power, the project will generate 166 GigaWatt hours of electricity annually.

Helping our communities

To give back to the community, we will be contributing to Poultry Powered Renewable Energy in India. This project involves taking poultry litter and using it to feed renewable electricity back to the Southern Regional Electricity Grid of India. This displaces the need for electricity sourced from thermal power plants.
