Climate Neutral Certification Standard
for credible climate neutrality
Climate change: the time to act is now. The next 10 years will be crucial for the coming 50 years – and beyond. As an organisation, it is time to be courageous and to take full responsibility. Reduce, compensate and monitor your CO2 emissions and get certified with the Climate Neutral Certification Standard.
Climate Neutral Group manages the standard, the first climate neutrality programme developed under the Code of Good Practice of ISEAL. We also officially have become a Community Member of the ISEAL Alliance. This represents a high level of credibility, integrity, and transparency. Even more importantly, it shows how the standard is really creating ambitious and measurable climate impact for businesses, their products, and services.
Become Climate Neutral Certified
Step by step to Zero CO2
Combatting climate change is of increasing urgency. This programme is offering your business a credible climate neutrality standard and consumers a reliable ‘climate neutral’ label.
Who and What?
Are you committed to combatting climate change and reducing your emissions to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement? And if most of your emissions are in your supply chain, do you want to take your responsibility there? In both cases, the Climate Neutral Certification Standard will work for you; get your organisation, products, and services certified.
To become Climate Neutral Certified, your carbon footprint, reduction results, and compensation measures are tested against strict criteria by independent certification bodies. With a positive result, you can use the ‘Climate Neutral Certified’ trademark and make credible climate neutral claims. You will achieve formal and visible recognition for your efforts.
