The Timberland "Green Index" is a measure of the environmental impact of their products. The goal is to provide consumers with visibility into the footprint Timberland creates.
Timberland products are rated on a scale of 1 to 10 using a system created to measure environmental footprint from raw materials to the finished product. The lower the score, the lower the environmental footprint.
Three main impact categories are: 1. Climate Impact: The greenhouse gas emissions created through production; 2. Chemicals Used: The presence of hazardous substances (PVC and Solvent Adhesives); and 3. Resource Consumption: The percentage, by weight of recycled, organic and renewable materials.
