CLIMATE NEUTRAL CERTIFIED
At KŌRARU, we're committed to more than just creating stunning swimwear; we're dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of our planet. That's why we're thrilled to announce that KŌRARU is now Climate Neutral Certified.
What Does This Mean?
Being Climate Neutral Certified means that we have taken concrete steps to measure, reduce, and offset our carbon emissions, aligning with our mission to create a more sustainable and eco-conscious future for fashion.
Offsetting Carbon Emissions with Rio Anapu Project
One of the ways we're offsetting our carbon emissions is through our support of the Rio Anapu Project. This project is a powerful initiative that not only helps combat climate change but also contributes to the protection of the Amazon rainforest.
Why the Rio Anapu Project?
We've chosen to partner with the Rio Anapu Project because of its significant environmental impact. This initiative focuses on reforestation, sustainable land management, and community development in the Amazon, directly addressing the urgent need to protect this vital ecosystem.
By contributing to the Rio Anapu Project, we are not only offsetting our carbon emissions but also supporting local communities and preserving the rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest.
Our Commitment to a Greener Future
KŌRARU believes that fashion can coexist harmoniously with nature, and our Climate Neutral Certification is a testament to that commitment. We're proud to take these steps towards a greener, more sustainable future.
We invite you to join us on this journey. By choosing KŌRARU, you're not just choosing stylish swimwear; you're choosing a brand that cares deeply about the environment and is actively working to make a positive impact.
Thank you for being a part of our mission to create a more climate-neutral, eco-conscious world. Together, we can make a difference.

All our deliveries are offset as well. Read more about it here.
We measured our Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-consumer greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which includes all emissions from making and delivering our sustainable swimsuits.
Our total 2022 emissions footprint:
We have committed to reduction targets and specific action plans to reduce operational and value chain emissions within the next 12-24 months. Actions include:
sourcing raw materials closer to manufacturing to reduce miles traveled by 30% across all textile sourcing; [ in progress ]
a reduction of our packaging by 33.3% by opting out of our organic tote bag and origami paper carrier. [ in progress ]
We are investing outside of our value chain in high quality, verified projects that meet the Climate Neutral Standard.These projects accelerate climate progress and compensate for KORARU's current GHG emissions as its reduction actions are implemented.
We're supporting the Rio Anapu-Pacaja Forest Protection that satisfies 10 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals — details below.
