Mobile technology accessories company Raptic has achieved carbon-neutral certification for its line of mobile phone cases.
Its Terrain, Slim, Clutch, Secure, Fort and Earth lines were independently certified by SCS Global Services, providing consumers with products determined to have net zero impact on the climate.
The organisation completed a carbon footprint assessment of Raptic’s products in accordance with the global Greenhouse Gas Protocol Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting standard, including production processes, materials, distribution, packaging and end-of-life disposal.
Once they were assessed, verified carbon offsets were purchased and retired, enabling SCS to certify the products as carbon-neutral.
Many of Raptic’s products are made with recycled materials and shipped in non-plastic packaging.
Michael Pizzimenti, Head of Sales, Marketing and Product Strategy for Raptic said: “This achievement is representative of Raptic’s commitment to sustainability as well as responsiveness to the direct demand from consumers for products that do not negatively impact the environment.
“As a manufacturer of mobile accessories, we feel an imperative to lead our industry in becoming more eco-conscious. By offering a complete line of certified carbon neutral mobile accessories that are better in style and performance than conventionally made products, we hope to influence consumer expectations in a way that will force the industry to follow our lead.”
