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.

Alpine Start was created to fuel adventures in the outdoors, and we strongly believe that it is our responsibility to protect the wild places we love from climate change. Not only does it threaten the pristine beauty of the mountains, but also the delicate balance of the high-altitude ecosystems where our coffee grows. We partnered with 1% for the Planet and Protect Our Winters (POW) early on and have worked to introduce more sustainable packaging solutions by using recycled materials and offering more bulk sized options. We plan to use more ecofriendly materials moving forward. Now, our next step is targeting our carbon footprint through our commitment to Climate Neutral. As we grow, we will always be looking for ways to reduce our impact.
