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 reduce the risk of deforestation in important forest ecosystems.

Gifts for Good was founded to reduce corporate gifting waste and to only support non-profits and social enterprises doing good in the world. By having a hybrid model where we dropship many products, we reduce the transportation a single item takes to get to the end-user. Additionally, our gifting software, Giftforward, reduces waste by allowing the gift recipient to select what they want, ensuring the gift isn't tossed into the landfill. If they do not want a physical gift, they can donate its value to the charity impact of their choice. We also developed honor cards that focus on a charity impact (like planting a tree) to replace the inexpensive single-use swag that corporations give away at place settings or in grab bags at events.
