Xilica has announced its commitment to decrease the carbon emissions throughout its business to net zero and achieve Climate Neutral CertifiedSM status. Xilica will be carbon neutral across its global value chain, meaning that every Xilica product sold will have net zero climate impact and support the responsibility efforts of its partners and end customers.
As the first vendor in its category to publicly commit to carbon neutrality, Xilica intends to empower customers by enabling more informed purchasing decisions that tie back to a product’s impact on the environment. It also hopes that increasing awareness around organizations’ carbon footprints will help drive greater reduction efforts throughout the supply chain.
“Businesses have a profound opportunity to help tackle the climate crisis, and limit its impact on economic prosperity, human health and well-being that disproportionately affect segments of society,” says James Knight, COO, Xilica. “We know that fighting climate change requires strong, coordinated action across industries, and hope our own efforts will make a positive contribution to the larger movement for greater environmental responsibility.”
As part of its commitment to carbon neutrality, Xilica will work with a range of independent partners including Climate Neutral, an international non-profit organization that collaborates with brands to help offset the entirety of their carbon emissions through systematic measurement and analysis of direct and indirect emissions, supply and management of carbon offsets, and best practice guidance.
“Consumers today are yearning for evidence that companies are aware of their contribution to climate change and committed to erasing it,” says Climate Neutral CEO Austin Whitman. “We’re thrilled to have Xilica commit to this journey. They will join our growing list of certified companies that are proving that we’re living in a new era of leadership on climate by top brands.”
