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.

Ever since BRUNA was born, by a chance discovery on the island of Tahiti, we’ve dedicated ourselves to designing exceptional jewelry that complements nature’s beauty and diversity. BRUNA’s story began when our founder discovered rare Keshi pearls during her travels through the French Polynesian islands. These unique, natural pearls are considered a by-product in pearl farming’s search for perfection, which just didn’t seem right to her. This discovery of something so beautiful that was unfairly destined to be thrown away sparked a unique idea. A small bag of pearls and a whole lot of inspiration later, BRUNA was to become the answer to her endless search for conscious, long-lasting jewelry.
