Timberland Cuts Emissions 19%
The company was able to cut emissions via energy efficiency and other methods, and therefore chose not to go through with its previously stated goal to have 22 percent of its 2008 energy come from renewables. Instead, it used renewables for 6.67 percent of its energy needs, up from about 5 percent in 2007. Here’s a look at the company’s use of renewable energy.
Timberland says it remains on track to meet its goal of company owned and operated facilities, as well as travel, being carbon neutral by 2010. The company notes that this represents only 4 percent of its total carbon footprint. Timberland says it will lean on the supply chain to help reduce emissions further.
As an example, here is a look at Timberland’s transportation-related emissions, which have dropped primarily because the company is relying more on rail, less on trucks. The below statistics represent only inbound traffic, or that from factories to distribution centers, and do not reflect emissions from the distribution center to retail stores.
