Medik8 is proud to announce it is now a verified Carbon Neutral company, as accredited by an independent third party.
ACHIEVING CARBON NEUTRAL STATUS:
This is no easy task. But Medik8’s dedicated sustainability team pulled together the company’s total emissions data for FY21, incorporating everything from the energy used for manufacturing and distribution to ingredient transportation and employee commuting. A thorough reduction plan was then put in place before all emissions were offset using The Gold Standard carbon offsets.
The entire process was overseen by external 3rd party company Avieco, who did all of the required calculations based on internationally-recognised methodologies (GHG Protocol) and in line with the PAS 2060 international standard.
Medik8 is committed to maintaining its Carbon Neutral status, and will recalculate its emissions every year. In fact, the brand is just about to kick-start the FY22 process. Data always refers to the previous financial year (ending in September), hence the accreditation for FY21 being received in FY22.
- Medik8 has not used inbound air freight for any transportation purposes for FY22
- Medik8 uses 100% renewable energy to power its offices, manufacturing and distribution
- Medik8 has offset all emissions from its direct-to-consumer website deliveries, backdated to its website launch in 2013
- Medik8’s new Innovation Centre is rated 'Very Good' by BREEAM and boasts multiple emission-reducing assets including solar panel arrays, electric charging points and a reverse osmosis machine to reduce water consumption
WATCH THIS SPACE:
‘’Becoming a carbon neutral company is only the first step on our decarbonisation journey. Therefore, we have put in place ambitious Science Based Targets to ensure the balance continuously shifts in favour of carbon avoided or reduced versus offsets. Our ultimate goal is to become Net Zero by 2040. We have recently signed the Climate Pledge, joining the 376 other companies (in 34 countries around the globe) working on solutions towards that end.’’ - Alexandra Florea, Head of Sustainability.
