NET ZERO EMISSION GLOVES

Your Safety Factory is dedicated to the environment, and we want to help your business satisfy the growing requirements for lessening climate change.

This is why we’ve partnered with Lalan Rubbers to bring the Neo Flex range of net zero emission gloves to Australia. Fully certified with help from The Carbon Consulting Company and The Sustainable Future Group, the Neo Flex is certified net zero to the ISO 14064-2 Standard through carbon insets.

Fully Sedex certified, REACH compliant, Oeko-Tex certified, Sanitized and made in Sri Lanka, the Neo Flex is the best option for your business and our environment.

Better still, donations from the sale of each pair go to benefit Redkite, an Australian charity helping kids with cancer and their families.

Figuring Out the Carbon Footprint

Using the Life-Cycle Analysis approach, all activities from raw material extraction to goods leaving the gate, were assessed to derive the total carbon footprint of producing this range of gloves.

Obtaining Carbon Insets

The emissions absorbed by the trees in our reforestation project, is quantified then validated and verified through ISO 14064-2. These verified emission removal units are called "carbon insets".

Using Carbon Insets to Negate Emissions

These carbon inset units are then set off against the emissions released during glove production, effectively negating the impact on the atmosphere. These gloves are now certified Carbon-Inset.

Combating climate change with net-zero carbon inset gloves

With the assistance of The Carbon Consulting Company (CCC) and The Sustainable Future Group (SFG), and through the work done by Lalan’s Green Future Initiative, our rubber-based land and biodiversity conservation project, we are now proud to present a range of  certified net-zero Carbon-Inset® Products.

How We Did It

CCC assessed and quantified the carbon footprint of manufacturing our LD selected range of products following the Life Cycle Analysis approach. CCC also measured the amount of carbon that would be sequestered through our land conversion project.

SFG then independently verified the product carbon footprint assessment and our project’s emission removals (Carbon Insets) using the ISO 14064-2 Standard.

The insets obtained from our project wil be used to negate the environmental impact of producing the selected products, which can then be certified as “Carbon-Inset® Products”.

Carbon Insetting vs. Carbon Offsetting

Carbon Offsetting = Neutralising carbon emissions using Carbon Credits obtained from outside the value chain of a business entity. These types of credits are referred fo as “Carbon Offsets”.

Carbon Insetting = Neutralising carbon emissions using Carbon Credits obtained from within the value chain of a business entity. These types of credits are referred to as “Carbon Insets’.

As a result of the progressive changes a company has to make in order to obtain carbon insets, Carbon Insetting has a greater impact on combating climate change and a more direct positive impact on all stakeholders of a business, since it profoundly influences the working value chain of a business than the more traditional Carbon Offsetting.
