TACKLING CLIMATE CHANGE HEAD ON

Sunday Afternoons was born out of a love of spending time outdoors with family—in any kind of weather. Increasingly, the places we love are at risk from climate change, and the weather patterns we thought we knew are shifting fast. That’s why we are tackling climate change head on.

We are proud to be Climate Neutral Certified!

Climate Neutral Certification supports our heartfelt commitment to decrease our footprint across our business. Our goal is to reduce our entire carbon footprint by 30% by 2030.

The steps required to achieve our initial certification, and annual recertification, include measuring our complete corporate greenhouse gas footprint, finding ways to reduce our footprint, and purchasing carbon offsets to offset the impact we have as a business.

We measured our carbon footprint by calculating the greenhouse gas emissions it takes to manufacture, warehouse, and ship our products worldwide, as well as the total impact of our operations. Going forward, we will offset those emissions by investing in climate change solutions. Through our carbon offset program, we have purchased credits in the Hong Phong 4 Solar Plant in Vietnam to offset 4,905 tonnes (metric tons) of greenhouse gas emissions this year.

The details of our offsets are:

Name of the business entity selling the offset and the offset registry or program:

South Pole/ Verra
 

Project identification number:

VSC1975
 

Project name as listed in the registry or program:

VSC1975- HONG PHONG 4 SOLAR 48 MW PROJECT
 

Offset project type, including whether the offsets purchased were derived from a carbon removal, an avoided emission, or a combination of both, and site location:

VSC1975- Solar - Avoidance - Vietnam
 

Specific protocol used to estimate emissions reductions or removal benefits:

VSC1975- Grid-connected electricity generation from renewable sources
 

Is there an independent third-party verification of company data and claims listed?

The Climate Change Project (previously Climate Neutral) has reviewed our company data. We are in the process of determining if this counts as verification.
 

Accuracy of claims:

Our certification was approved by The Climate Change Project and our reduction goals were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative for Scope 1 and Scope 2.
Climate change requires immediate action. There isn’t a minute to waste when it comes to removing climate-changing emissions from our global economy. Look for the Climate Neutral Certified label when you shop, and support companies taking immediate action on climate change. Let’s solve this together.
