The Moose Toys company recently announced its commitment to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2040.
The Australian toy company has set several long and short term sustainability targets that are in line with the international Paris Agreement. These goals will be verified by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) within the next 24 months.
Moose Toys plans to reduce its global greenhouse emissions by gradually swapping to 100% renewable energy sources for all of the company’s production facilities. In addition, the company is collaborating with its suppliers to reduce waste in its supply chain operations.
Moose has already started changing its shipping methods from air freight to alternate transport methods such as railway and maritime to further reduce its climate impact.
The company is also collaborating with logistics providers to deliver on zero-emission shipping and trucking operations by the 2040 goal.
On the production side, Moose will be increasing the use of recycled and recyclable materials in its packaging and minimizing the use of plastic throughout its product lines.
The company’s product development team will receive additional training and education in sustainable circular design principles to further the company’s climate change initiative.
In addition, Moose Toys is working to identify alternate ways to rehome, refurbish, and recycle its various products.
The official Moose Toys website will soon feature educational information for consumers on how to responsibly pass on or recycle Moose toys and packaging.
Moose Toy’s committment to net-zero greenhouse emissions was officially announced by the company at the 2023 Toy Fair.
