What companies actually do to limit the climate impact of their organization, 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 unclear.
‘Climate Neutral Certified’ means now Climate Neutral, after reduction in line with the Paris Climate Agreement
Taking full responsibility for your climate-impact is real when a company and/or product(s) and services comply to the standard ‘Climate Neutral Certified’. To get certified and use the logo, companies, products or services must meet following core criteria:
- The CO2-emissions of the organization, product or service have been calculated according to recognized methods and standards.
- CO2-emissions are reduced annually to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. This means the needed CO2 reduction is achieved every year.
- The CO2-emissions that remains 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 done in clear and transparant way via website, CSR reports etc. In case of products the logo and claim will be on the packaging and website.
Independent Certification Bodies (Preferred by Nature and Ecocert) verify is all criteria in the Climate Neutral Standard are met and check the proof every year. When in the previous year the reduction result was excellent and goes 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!
