Carbon Boards, Carbon Paddles, what
about our Carbon impact?
Neptune SUPs HQ we take our environmental impact seriously, we all love playing
in the waters of this amazing planet but if we are not careful we will ruin it for future generations.
With this in mind in 2016 we commissioned Carbon Balancing specialist Go
Balance to carry out a detailed life cycle assessment on Neptune SUPs and our products. This was one of the first ever detailed reports calculating not just the construction but the whole life of a board. The report calculated the Carbon Footprint
of Neptune and our kit and led us to make the decision to carbon balance all our SUP
boards & paddles prior to them being sold.
Carbon balanced means that we have taken steps to offset the Carbon footprint
of our "ALL" our SUP Boards and Paddles (this includes all the kit we sold before we knew our footprint). As far as we know we were the first SUP brand to do this, others have followed and some have made token gestures whilst others sadly are still doing nothing at all?! Unfortunately, its not as easy as planting a tree, if you don't know your footprint you won't know how to offset it. It's also one of the reasons we stopped making/selling inflatable boards, it's very hard to claim to be environmentally friendly if your main product is a very large piece of single use plastic.
How have we done this?...
