Moose Toys, the Australia-based toy company, has committed to a long-term goal of net-zero emissions by 2040.
The company has also set short- and long-term science-based targets (SBTs) to cut down its environmental impact and support a planet-positive future.
Paul Solomon, CEO of Moose Toys, said the company is setting an ambitious agenda to become the most responsible and sustainable toy company it can be.
“We acknowledge how critical this commitment is in protecting our planet and ensuring we can continue to make kids around the world super happy now and into the future.”
Specifically, the Moose Toys team will focus on key decarbonisation activities like using 100 per cent renewable energy for all of its owned and operated facilities and coordinating similar decarbonisation goals with suppliers. Additionally, the company will take initiatives to reduce air freight emissions, with less than 0.1 per cent of freight to be transported via aircraft.
Moose will also ensure its packaging and products support the net-zero journey. The packaging for all newly produced products is paper-based, containing 30 per cent pre-consumer recycled plastic (rPET).
Greg Simmons, director of sustainable product development at Moose, is confident the company has the passion and creativity to meet this challenge.
“It’s critical that our pathway to Net-Zero is aligned with the latest climate science so that we can play our part in helping to protect people and the planet from the worst effects of climate change.”
The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) will verify both short and long-term emissions reduction targets of Moose within 24 hours.
