The award will be collected by House of Baukjen’s CEO Geoff von Sonsbeeck at a ceremony during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, the company said in a media release.
“This past year, we have seen deadly wildfires and floods in many parts of the world,” said UN Climate Change executive secretary Patricia Espinosa. “We urgently require solutions and actions from everyone: public and private sectors, civil society, academia, investors, cities and regions, etc. The winners of the 2021 UN Global Climate Action Awards provide tangible proof that solutions to tackle the climate crisis exist and that they can be replicated and quickly scaled up. This is what inspiring leadership looks like.”
The 11 award-winning projects fall within three focus areas: Climate Neutral Now, Financing for Climate Friendly Investment and Climate Leaders. House of Baukjen is one of the winners in the ‘Climate Neutral Now’ category, along with Microsoft and Taylors of Harrogate.
The company has made a number of changes to its use of materials and logistics in recent years. From?Q2 2019 to Q2 2021, it has achieved an average saving of 1.19 kg of CO2e and 830 litres of water for every garment it produces. In the first half of 2021, this represented a total saving of 99 tonnes of carbon equivalent emissions and 74 million litres of water.
“We became completely Carbon Negative across our entire supply chain as of 2020 by analysing, reducing, restoring and offsetting our carbon emissions through Gold Standard CER and VER offsets. Carbon Negative?means that the impact goes beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to actually create an environmental benefit by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere,” the company said.
