We commit to donating 1% of our total sales to non-profit environmental organizations
Since January first 2020 Icebug is a member of 1% for the planet. That means that we commit to donating 1% of our total sales, regardless if we’re making a profit or not, to non-profit environmental organizations.
We joined to solidify our commitment to take our responsibility for the transformation to a sustainable future, on a planet in balance. As a business, we see this as a license to operate, and we look forward to joining this movement adding a little more momentum to it and encouraging others to do the same.
We steer our involvement in 1% for the planet towards climate change mitigation – organizations that work towards decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and to keep re-generative eco-systems intact. The latter will also have a positive effect on biodiversity which is another critical aspect of the planetary boundaries.
Some of the organizations we have supported so far:
- Protect Our Winters (POW), who specialize in climate advocacy
- Naturarvet, conservation of old-growth forest
- IDH - The Sustainable Trade Initiative, building solar infrastructure in Vietnam
- Build up Nepal,
We’re looking forward to going further in these co-operations and also getting involved with new partners – either supporting with direct funds, visibility or helping with our expertise in different fields.
We at Icebug are serious about our climate work. We follow the UN's Climate Neutral Now initiative, measure the entire company's greenhouse gas emissions, and constantly change materials and processes to get a lower climate footprint. Our shoes will have a climate footprint lower than 6.4 kilos of CO2 per pair by 2030. Along the way, we share our materials and suppliers through our initiative for transparency, Follow the Footprints.
