About Native Maps

Here at Native Maps, our main material is paper - and we choose our paper very carefully. All of our paper is made with hydroelectric energy from the family-owned, US-based French Paper Company. All of our paper has recycled or FSC certified content. We love paper because it is infinitely recyclable, so we transitioned all of our shipping materials to recycled paper and cardboard - which also means that our packaging is 100% recyclable. Offsetting our carbon footprint is the final step in owning - and taking pride in - our process from start to finish.

01 Measure

Native Maps measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

02 Offset

Native Maps invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Native Maps to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

03 Reduce

Native Maps is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.
