Climate Neutral Certified
Why we are different

Many programmes offer net-zero pathways and allow climate neutrality claims where offsetting is required. But CNG’s Climate Neutral Certification Standard goes further: clients need to gradually reduce their own emissions each year. The aim is to get (close to) Absolute zero emissions in 2050 for organizations and for certified products, the products’ emissions reduction target is 25% in 2030.

Why so ambitious? Because we firmly believe that only offsetting is not going to save the world – it is time to be brave and take full responsibility. We invite you to join our journey from A to Zero CO2 and start the road to becoming certified and acknowledged for your efforts! Whether you are a beginner or a frontrunner, please contact us for the possibilities for your business.

Independent Climate Neutral Label
For Organisations, Products & Services

This standard 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 efforts to offset the remainder are independently tested against clear criteria. This means you can use the Climate Neutral Certified label for your organization, product, or service. Climate Neutral Group is an approved Community Member of ISEAL, the global membership association for credible sustainability standards. We have followed ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice in the development process of the new standard. In addition, our customers are independently assessed (audited and certified) by independent third parties known as Certification Bodies.

Why choose Climate Neutral Certification?

Climate policy often has unclear goals, a fragmented approach, and invisible results. With the Climate Neutral Certification Standard, you ensure that your climate policy matches globally agreed-upon goals and that it is consistently and firmly embedded in your organization. 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 rest with certified compensation projects.

How Does the Standard Work For You?

By following the standard, your organization takes the right qualitative steps: insight into CO2 emissions, reduction, and offsetting. It gives a concrete shape to your internal sustainability programme. You are in control because it works as a (climate) management tool that allows you to critically review internal processes including your suppliers. Your organization becomes prepared for stricter rules in the future. The standard helps you to be progressive and innovative, which contributes to a climate-friendly future. It gives your organization a ‘License to Operate’. Climate Neutral Certified is also for products and services.
