OUR UK OPERATIONS ARE NOW CARBON NEGATIVE.
As we continue to explore sustainability as a brand, we are pushing every avenue to reduce our impact on the environment.
That’s why, every month, we fund the planting of trees in high-impact areas such as Madagascar & Mozambique, plus the reforestation of 15 trees monthly right here in the UK.
This is equivalent to the removal of 26.49 tonnes of CO2 per month.
Scimitar x Ecologi
Picking the right partner was a key element of this project.
We wanted to make sure all of our sustainable support was fully certified to established international standards.
With this commitment, we are now able to offset the complete carbon impact of our UK workforce, head office operations, as well as a personal offset for our employees!
That’s not all. The carbon offsetting projects we are involved in include peatland restoration & conservation in Indonesia, and converting landfill gas to energy in Northern Turkey, which you can explore below.
Peatland restoration & conservation in Indonesia
The project sets out to protect and restore 149,800 hectares of peatland ecosystem in Indonesia. This includes the protection of existing peatland forest through satellite monitoring and fire management.
Converting landfill gas to energy in Northern Turkey
Instead of being released into the atmosphere, dangerous, earth-harming methane gas from landfill sites can instead be tapped, captured, and used as an energy source for generating electricity.
The Scimitar Forest
With over 2500 trees in our very own forest, every month we fund the planting of 385 trees.
Each of these are fully verified & certified. You can see them all in our digital forest below.
To put our contribution into context, here are some amazing stats based on how our carbon offsetting programme looks.
The 385 trees equate to 26.49 tonnes of carbon reduction, monthly. This equates to:
Recycle, Reduce, Repurpose
Our mantra of sustainability.
From a commitment to using recycled polyester as standard by 2025 to developing eco-friendly packaging, explore our vision today.
Carbon negative UK operations.
Every month, Scimitar funds the planting of 280 fully-traced trees in both rainforests & the UK, equivalent to 26.49 tonnes of carbon reduction.
Unprecedented recycling of used kit.
In partnership with Tag Rugby Trust & NPAC, we’ll pick up disused/old sportswear from our clients when we deliver their new kit.
