Vuori is proud to announce that they have officially been Climate Neutral Certified for three years in a row. Vuori continues to align with the growing movement of brands achieving the Climate Neutral Certified standard by measuring its 2021 greenhouse gas emissions footprint, purchasing verified carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions next year and beyond.
Climate Neutral Certified is the leading consumer label designating carbon neutrality. It is carried by brands that have chosen to be accountable for the greenhouse gas emissions generated in the production, operations, and shipping of their goods and services.
“I have always believed that businesses have the power to drive meaningful change,” said Joe Kudla, Founder and CEO of Vuori. “We have a long way to go on our sustainability journey, but being Climate Neutral certified for the past three years has allowed us to remove 60,683 metric tons of CO2e from the atmosphere. This is something we are very proud of.”
To offset their 2021 carbon footprint, Vuori partnered with leading offset providers, Pachama & 3Degrees to support projects that focused on restoring degraded forests and supporting clean energy. Through these partnerships, Vuori has offset 13,500 metric tons of CO2e in the Chestnut Mountain Improved Forest Management project and 19,205 metric tons of CO2e in the Dempsey Ridge Wind project.
“Climate Neutral Certified companies show the world that immediate action on climate change is possible and essential,” says Austin Whitman, CEO of Climate Neutral. “In just three years, the growing number of Climate Neutral Certified brands has built a powerful movement that gives companies and consumers meaningful ways to act on climate, right now. The newly certified brands oining us – as well as current brands achieving recertification – are leading the way by recognizing that climate change must be solved. They believe that all companies should take immediate voluntary action to address their carbon emissions, and they are engaging their consumers around this important issue like never before.”
Launched in 2015, Vuori merges technical clothing with a West Coast aesthetic that looks and feels great. When creating Vuori, Founder Joe Kudla didn’t have to look far for inspiration; headquartered in the aspirational beach community of Encinitas, CA, the brand is a natural extension of its home environment where active, conscious and creative people inspire those around them every day. In addition to a thriving e-commerce business and physical stores in Berkeley, Boulder, Cherry Creek, Del Mar, Encinitas, La Jolla, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, San Francisco, San Jose, Scottsdale, Studio City, Palo Alto, Boston and Venice Beach, Vuori is also sold in most Nordstrom and REI stores.
