A Carbon Negative Company
Climate Neutral Certified
Hass is one of only 27 fashion and apparel companies in the world that are Climate Neutral Certified. By going carbon negative, Hass is helping reduce the detrimental — in some cases irreversible — effects of carbon on our environment and our individual wellness.
From harvesting materials to product delivery, Hass is entirely carbon negative. As a subsidiary of Avocado Green Brands, we work with Climate Neutral to set an annual emissions Reduction Action Plan. Then we offset more than the balance of all our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. That’s the company’s full footprint — from harvesting our fabrics to product delivery. The effort is part of our core commitment to the health of our planet and the people living on it. When you buy something from Hass, you’re not just purchasing your soon-to-be favorite piece of clothing, you’re joining the fight against the climate crisis.
Climate Change Is An Existential Threat
Climate change is the greatest threat facing humanity. If we’re going to reverse course, we all have to fight for a more sustainable planet — now. We've done the work — going net-zero isn't just possible, it’s essential. At Hass, we measure and offset our entire carbon footprint. But we don't stop there. We know climate change requires systemic solutions, so we use our platform to advocate for legislation that will protect people and the planet.
First Things First: Reducing Our Emissions
We minimize our carbon emissions as much as possible.
To do that, we had to start from the ground floor of our operations. Our first step? Reducing shipping emissions by utilizing GOTS-certified facilities in Los Angeles to make our products. Materials have a major impact on the environment, too. Synthetic materials derived from fossil fuels, like nylon and polyester, have a massive carbon footprint. That's why we harness the elegant beauty of natural, organic, and innovative fabrics at Hass. Our materials are safer for you and the planet — and produce fewer of the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change.
We Offset Everything Else
To achieve carbon negative status, Climate Neutral calculated our scope 1 (direct emissions: sources that are owned or controlled by Hass), 2 (indirect emissions: purchased electricity, steam, heating, and cooling for own use), and 3 (indirect emissions: indirect emissions occurring in the value chain associated with the production of a specific product) emissions. Because we reduce our carbon footprint throughout our entire supply chain, we’re able to offset more than all of our scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. Our carbon offsets pay validated partners to prevent carbon emissions from getting into the atmosphere by supporting projects like clean energy initiatives or forest preservation.
We Need Your Help
We're committed to annually measuring and offsetting our footprint and to continuously explore new ways to reduce our carbon emissions. You can help by supporting companies, like Hass, that fight against climate change; voting for legislators that fight to protect our climate; and by reducing your own carbon footprint.
