Skullcandy is also partnering with EcoChain to assess its carbon emissions so that its product development and manufacturing practices enable future carbon reduction. 

In addition, Skull Candy’s partnership with TerraPass has enabled investment in certified carbon-capture programs to offset impacts. This has resulted in executing a net-zero footprint for products in the Transparency Series.

From Nelson Fortier, Senior Director of Brand and Product Marketing for SkullCanday: “From materials and manufacturing to packaging, shipping, and infrastructure, everything produced or consumed has an adverse effect on the environment. The Transparency Series serves as a platform to educate and empower our consumers while raising awareness for environmental responsibility. By divulging our products’ impact, Skullcandy is raising the bar for accountability as we work to decrease our impact with each new product.”

There are two products in the Transparency Series so far that have a net-zero carbon footprint (via carbon credits).
