Molly Mutt, the maker of high-quality, fashionable and durable decorative pet products that are designed to bring dogs and their owners closer together, is proud to announce it is officially Climate Neutral Certified. Molly Mutt joins the growing movement of companies achieving the Climate Neutral Certified standard by measuring its 2022 greenhouse gas emissions, acting on reduction plans and offsetting their brand footprint with eligible-verified credits.
Climate Neutral Certified is the leading consumer label for climate neutrality. It is earned by organizations that have chosen to be accountable for the greenhouse gas emissions generated in the production, operations and shipping of their goods and services.
“We founded Molly Mutt back in 2009 with the introduction of the patented Molly Mutt dog bed, which enables consumers to upcycle unwanted home textiles such as pillows, blankets and clothing and use them as the stuffing for their dog bed. Not only have consumers diverted millions of pounds of texti,les into their Molly Mutt dog beds that would have otherwise ended up in landfills, the scent from these items also act to calm and comfort their dog” said Molly Mundt, Molly Mutt’s Co-Founder and Co-Owner.
“Sustainability is at the heart of what we do, and throughout the years we’ve undertaken steps to educate and motivate ourselves to do more,” said Mundt. “This year, we aligned to the Climate Neutral Standard and became certified. We measured 1,846 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, implemented, me-bound reduction actions and compensated for our 2022 impact by investing in eligible-verified wind power, deforestation avoidance and landfill gas abatement and power generation projects. We are also accelerating immediate changes to the raw materials used in the production of our products to achieve more sustainable results.”
“Climate Neutral Certified companies are demonstrating immediate action on climate change is possible and essential,” said Austin Whitman, CEO of Climate Neutral. “Climate Neutral Certified brands have built a powerful movement that gives companies and consumers meaningful ways to act on climate – today. They are leading the way, taking immediate voluntary action to address their carbon emissions and engaging their consumers around this important issue like never before.” Climate Neutral’s certification builds on internationally recognized standards for carbon measurement and neutrality. All certified brands must measure cradle-to-consumer greenhouse gas emissions each year to maintain certification. Then, a brand must commit to reduction action plans to cut future emissions with a 12-24 month ,meline, reporting progress on those plans annually. Finally, certified brands must invest in eligible-verified carbon credits to compensate for all their emissions, directing investments into critical projects that remove and avoid emissions. The brand’s certification data is publicly available on Climate Neutral’s website, and the process is repeated annually when companies must reverify.
