Showers Pass Becomes Climate Neutral Certified

Showers Pass measured and offset its 2020 carbon footprint and is working to reduce future emissions.

Portland, OR – In response to the urgency of the climate crisis, Showers Pass, makers of technically advanced active apparel and gear, is proud to announce that it is officially Climate Neutral Certified. Showers Pass joins 230 other brands that have earned the standard by measuring and offsetting all of their 2020 carbon emissions and reducing future emissions.

Climate Neutral Certified is the leading consumer label designating carbon neutrality. It is carried by brands that have voluntarily stepped up to take responsibility for the greenhouse gas emissions generated in the production, operations, and shipping of their goods and services.

“Sustainability and the environment have been part of our brand DNA since day one, and today we’re thrilled to join other Climate Neutral Certified brands in taking meaningful action for the climate,” says Stephanie Leikas, Sustainability Coordinator at Showers Pass. “We believe in Climate Neutral’s mission of taking action now to solve a problem that we understand to be an urgent threat.”

“Showers Pass and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions,” says Climate Neutral CEO, Austin Whitman. “Our label helps consumers identify these brands. It’s a recognizable and trusted symbol that turns everyday purchases into meaningfully positive climate action.”

Climate Neutral’s certification is based on internationally recognized standards for carbon measurement, neutrality, and offsetting. Each brand must measure Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-customer greenhouse gas emissions for the prior calendar year. Then a brand must buy verified carbon credits to offset its entire footprint. This directs investment into critical carbon sequestration projects such as forest conservation, renewable energy, and carbon capture technologies. Finally, brands commit to a reduction action plan to cut future emissions within a 12-24 month timeline, reporting progress on those plans annually. All of the brand’s data is publicly available on Climate Neutral’s website. The process is repeated annually when companies must re-certify.
