As a social enterprise, MiiR's shared purpose is to "give more and take less." This means that we prioritize business practices and strategies that preserve the long-term viability of people and the planet.
Human-caused environmental degradation is a threat not only to healthy markets and healthy businesses, but most importantly, it also adversely affects our quality of life. We also recognize that as a consumer goods company, the production of our products has an inherent impact on the planet. As we seek to better understand this impact and identify ways we can improve, we are committed to measuring our carbon footprint with increasing accuracy.
Being Climate Neutral Certified guides these efforts.
Climate Neutral is a nonprofit organization working to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world by recruiting companies to publicly measure, reduce, and offset their carbon emissions. While the world is constantly changing, the pandemic has only strengthened our resolve for a better future. That's why we're taking responsibility for the health and wellbeing of our planet and global community.
This means that annually, we've committed to measuring and offsetting 100% of our carbon footprint while working to reduce emissions. When you see the Climate Neutral label, you can trust that that brand is doing the same thing.
A look into our 2021 Certification:
In 2021, we offset 14,036 tCO2e of carbon.
In an effort to drive real, authentic change, we worked closely with our offsetting partner, Bonneville Environmental Foundation, to hone in on where our dollars would have the greatest impact. We invested $131,000 in carbon credits and focused our purchase on nature-based solutions with some investments in renewables where our products are manufactured.
“Reduction” will continue to be an ongoing effort at MiiR as we continuously refine our processes and reduce our impact on the planet. See our sustainability commitments and actions for more information here.
