At MiMask we love our planet. As one of our founding principles, we want to build a business that is climate neutral from day 1.
Starting a business, climate neutrality is only one of many challenges. For most suppliers this is still new territory, and doing things the old (polluting) way is much easier, and sometimes cheaper. The lack of transparency along the value chain makes it even harder to accomplish our Climate Pledge we have committed to at MiMask:
- Use only 100% renewable energy in our factories and offices
- Use 100% recyclable packaging for our products and shipping materials
- Set up our facilities avoiding single use materials wherever possible (and legal), recycling all waste responsibly
- Using low energy consumption machinery and equipment wherever available
Our founders have committed to measure and offset their personal carbon footprint this year. One of them has already done so for 2019, being a member and ambassador of Leaders For Climate Action.
MiMask as a company is working together with ClimatePartner to measure our carbon footprint from the start. We pledge to offset our footprint as long as we cannot avoid having one in the first place.
We will appoint a Climate Officer in our company soon, that will not just coordinate all our efforts, but also look into our suppliers to tackle indirect carbon footprint issues. We will actively participate in the Climate Officer community of Leaders For Climate Action, to learn from other tech companies that care about sustainability, and adopt best practices.
More activities are planned. We’ll update you here on all of them as they happen. Stay tuned!
