Climate Neutral Certification
Reduction is key
Many programmes offer net zero pathways and allow climate neutrality claims only by using offsetting. But our Climate Neutral Certification Programme goes further: clients need to gradually reduce their own emissions each year. The aim is to get close to zero emissions in 2050 for organisations and for certified products; the emissions reduction target is 25% by 2030. Read more about this approach in our position paper.
Why so ambitious? Because we firmly believe that simply offsetting is not going to save the world. We invite you to join our journey to zero CO2 and start on the road to becoming certified and acknowledged for your efforts!
Independent Climate Neutral Label
For Organisations, Products, and Services
This programme uses a structured method and various tools to accelerate your climate policy towards zero CO2 and makes it visible to your stakeholders. All steps taken to reduce your CO2 emissions and offset the remainder are independently tested against clear criteria. This means you can use the Climate Neutral Certified label for your organisation, product, or service. The Climate Neutral Group has followed the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice in the development process of the standard and is an approved Community Member of ISEAL, the global membership association for credible sustainability standards. In addition, our customers are independently assessed (audited and certified) by independent third parties known as certification bodies. This guarantees the quality of the programme.

Why choose Climate Neutral Certification?
Climate policies often have unclear goals, a fragmented approach, and invisible results. With the Climate Neutral Certification Programme, you ensure that your climate policy matches globally agreed goals and that it is consistently and firmly embedded in your organisation. You can also show the independently verified steps you have taken to become climate neutral – that you calculated your CO2 emissions, reduced them as much as possible and offset the remaining CO2 with certified compensation projects.Contact us
Why does the programme
work for you?
By following the programme, your organisation takes the right qualitative steps: an insight into CO2-emissions, reduction, and offsetting. It gives a clear shape to your internal sustainability programme. You are in control because it works as a management tool that allows you to critically review internal processes and your suppliers relating to this area. It also prepares your organisation for stricter rules in the future. You can be progressive and innovative, which contributes to a climate-friendly future. The standard gives your organisation a ‘licence to operate’. The ‘Climate Neutral Certified’ label is also available for products and services.

For us, the ‘Climate Neutral Guaranteed’ certification is logical, and the annual audit is an excellent external check of our policy, our footprint and the reduction measures. It also challenges us.”
