For Goodness Sake
Responsible companies need to be thoughtful, aware, and willing to take action.
At Forsake, that means taking time to understand the impact our operations have on local communities and the global environment, and committing to positive changes that are both meaningful and measurable.
To combat our own contribution to climate change, we’ve taken a three-step approach to mitigate our carbon footprint:
1. MeasureWe estimate that one pair of Forsakes releases 29.8 kg CO2e into the atmosphere. This includes the sourcing, manufacturing, shipping, and employee operations required to put Forsakes on your feet.
2. ReduceWe’ve transitioned to sourcing our leather from Leather Working Group Gold-rated suppliers. Over four audits, LWG Gold suppliers have reduced energy consumption by as much as 48%.
3. OffsetForsake is Climate Neutral Certified for all of our direct and indirect 2019 CO2e emissions. Our carbon credits were purchased through Carbonfund.org and support the Envira Amazonia Project for rainforest conservation in Brazil.
The Envira Amazonia Project
For 2019, our credits supported the Envira Amazonia Project in Brazil. The Envira Project will preserve nearly 500,000 acres of rare and endangered tropical rainforest ecosystem while generating sustainable economic opportunities for local communities. The project was awarded “Triple Gold Distinction” for climate change mitigation, biodiversity, and community benefits.
