Fashion and lifestyle brand Frank And Oak kicks off 2020 with an increased commitment to sustainability and the announcement of new sustainability goals to be achieved by 2022. The five ambitious goals further the brand’s commitment to reducing their impact on the planet with an emphasis on utilizing recycled materials and harnessing renewable energy sources and carbon offsets to neutralize the brand’s environmental impact.

“The climate crisis is an issue that is deeply important to us at Frank And Oak. Over the last few years, we have been able to be nimble and agile to adapt our business practices to better serve our planet, and as well, our customers,” says Ethan Song, Frank And Oak’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Though we have made significant strides, we recognize that there is still so much we need to do as the climate crisis continues to worsen. This is why we have set such ambitious goals, to remain accountable to ourselves, our customers and our communities.”
The Montreal-based company has outlined five sustainability goals that involve eliminating the use of virgin materials and increasing responsible energy and operations practices. The five goals include:
Goal 1 – Zero virgin plastic - By 2022, Frank And Oak aims to cut all virgin plastic in their supply chain. The first step towards this goal is currently underway as the brand begins to use exclusively 100% compostable, plant-based bags for shipping, while also removing excess shipping packaging.
