Certified Climate Neutral Status Alpine Fit joins the movement of companies achieving the Climate Neutral Certified standard by measuring and compensating for its annual cradle-to-consumer greenhouse gas emissions, taking action on reduction plans, and offsetting their brand footprint with eligible-verified credits. Alpine Fit is setting a new path having a Climate Neutral Certified Company headquartered in Alaska. This milestone underlines Alpine Fit’s commitment to minimizing its ecological footprint and being part of the move toward a carbon-neutral future. “Climate Neutral Certified companies are demonstrating immediate action on climate change is possible and essential,” says Austin Whitman, CEO of Climate Neutral. “Climate Neutral Certified brands have built a powerful movement that gives companies and consumers meaningful ways to act on climate—today. They are leading the way, taking immediate voluntary action to address their carbon emissions,” Whitman continues.
“At Alpine Fit we strive to act responsibly toward the environment in all of our business practices from thoughtful design to reduce waste in production, to plastic-free packaging solutions, using fabrics and materials that are from recycled or natural sources, properties like odor-resistance to reduce how often their garments need to be laundered, and supporting repairs and alterations to extend the life of outdoor apparel and clothing. By joining 1% for the Planet and pledging 1% of our annual sales to non-profit organizations supporting environmental protections, as well as offsetting 135 metric tonnes of CO2 through the purchase of carbon credits attributed to wind farms, forest protections, and recycling efforts to become climate neutral certified we are putting actual dollars towards these organizations that do the work to support a future of enjoying a healthy outdoor and active life on this planet” says Jen Loofbourrow.
Alpine Fit is looking forward to being part of the growing movement of business putting financial commitments towards its values in Alaska, nationally and globally.
