Xilica announced its commitment to decrease carbon emissions throughout its business to net-zero and achieve Climate Neutral Certified status. Xilica will be carbon neutral across its global value chain, meaning that every Xilica product sold will have a net-zero climate impact and support the responsibility efforts of its partners and end customers. Xilica intends to empower customers by enabling more informed purchasing decisions that tie back to a product’s impact on the environment.
“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,” said 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.”
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,” said 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.”
