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.

Grain is a design practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. Our work has grown and shifted over the years from practical solutions such as recyclable shower curtains, to developing sustainable income opportunities for weaving cooperatives in Guatemala, to designing heirloom quality furniture and objects from natural materials and finishes that you can trust to be clean and safe for your home and family. We limit ourselves to working with materials that are long-lasting, non-toxic, made using recycled content, made from well managed renewable resources and/or are reusable or recyclable at the end of their useful life. We also offer vegan options on all of our designs. In 2022, we became a certified B Corp.
