As a certified organisation
you contribute your part in combatting climate change

With the increased urgency to combat climate change and realize the goals in the Paris Agreement, the Climate Neutral Group sets the bar high with its Climate Neutral Certification Programme. It is the first climate neutrality programme developed under the Code of Good Practice of ISEAL; this represents a high level of credibility, integrity, and transparency in the way the Climate Neutral Group has developed and oversees the programme. More importantly, it shows how the programme is really creating ambitious and measurable climate impact for your organization and being climate neutral in a credible way.

 

CO2-reduction is key
when following the pragmatic approach of the programme

Digging in into each part of your CO2 footprint − energy usage, transport, business travel (flying), and paper usage − is the best start for effective reduction. But first define your targets, then tackle the reduction of CO2 emissions of your organisation in a structured way. For an effective reduction strategy, the programme offers useful tools and templates. Realistic action and monitoring plans will make the path to getting certified easier. Think of following focus areas:

  • Energy – Savings & Transition
  • Mobility & Transport
  • International Business Travel – Flying

Do most of your carbon emissions take place in your up- and downstream activities? Then product or service certification is a better choice to reduce your climate impact.

Offsetting
benefits more than just the climate

Offsetting the CO2 emissions that remain is a mandatory part of the Climate Neutral Certification Programme. Keep in mind that offsetting is necessary for achieving the climate goals; innovations and solutions for reducing CO2 can help you towards net zero in the long term. Carbon offsetting is a great instrument for getting there now: you immediately ensure that your remaining CO2 emissions do not end up in the atmosphere. By offsetting, you invest in a climate project that reduces the CO2 produced elsewhere. Offsetting creates an impact that goes beyond climate, and contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
