About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

Description

Projects that support wind energy generation in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

As we have seen our snowpack, winters and overall climate shift over the past 32 years, we believe that informed decisions and hard work can help reduce our environmental impact so that the snow is just as deep for our grandkids as it is for us. Using specific and accurate tools and info, we have measured our impact on the environment and are actively using this data to identify alternatives and drive future development decisions.
