Timberland’s goal is to become “carbon neutral”– meaning that the company seeks to fully reduce and offset the effects of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by Timberland owned and operated facilities as well as employee air travel. Timberland's target is an absolute reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2010 (over 2006 levels). Timberland said it is a founding member of BICEP because "global warming poses an alarming threat given the magnitude and reach of its impact."
