Climate Neutral Certification Standard

The Climate Neutral Certification Standard uses a structured method to accelerate towards zero CO2, on track with the Paris Agreement. All steps taken to reduce CO2 emissions and offset the remainder are independently tested against clear criteria by independent third parties, certification bodies. Depending on the certification scope, the Climate Neutral Certified label can be used for organizations, products, and services. The ISEAL Codes of Good Practice are followed, which guarantees the quality of the programme. If you are interested in the full development process of the programme, please click here >>.
