we believe that going to the source is the best way to reduce our company’s carbon emissions. that’s why we offer incentives to our suppliers + manufacturers to reduce the carbon emitted by their operations. if they can find solutions to demonstrably reduce energy use and resulting emissions, method will contribute to their purchase. such efficiency improvements include heating/cooling fans, low-energy factory lighting and solar panel installations.
over the past 5 years, method has participated in a variety of carbon-offset programs. while carbon offsets alone aren’t the only solution to the climate change crisis, high quality and verifiable offsets are effective ways to reduce our climate impact while we find further efficiency improvements and alternative energy sources.
