Scroll down to find out what Climate Neutral Certified means in a nutshell.
What companies actually do to limit the climate impact of their organisation, products, and services is often unclear. The goals are vague or ambitious, and are often far into the future. The approach and the results are uncertain.
‘Climate Neutral Certified’ now means climate neutral after reduction, in line with the Paris Agreement.
Taking full responsibility for your climate impact is real when a company and its products and services comply with the standard ‘Climate Neutral Certified’. To become certified and use the logo, companies, products, or services must meet following core criteria:
- The CO2-emissions of the organisation, product, or service have been calculated according to recognized methods and standards.
- CO2-emissions are reduced annually to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This means the required CO2 reduction is achieved every year.
- The CO2-emissions that remain after reduction will be offset (compensated) with certified Gold Standard or VCS projects.
- This means the amount of compensated CO2 will be less year after year
- Communication about the status of their climate action is made in a clear and transparent way via the company website, CSR reports etc. In the case of products, the logo and claim will be on the packaging and website.
Independent Certification Bodies (Preferred by Nature and Ecocert) verify that all criteria in the Climate Neutral Standard are met and check the proof every year. When the reduction result was excellent in the previous year and is moving faster towards zero CO2, the certification body may decide to certify for two years.
So, if you find real climate action important, ‘Climate Neutral Certified’ products is a good choice!
