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.

JuneShine started from a simple question: Why do we know so much about the food we eat, but not the alcohol we drink? We decided to change that with JuneShine. From Day 1, sustainability has been our focus. We donate 1% of sales to environmental nonprofits through 1% For the Planet, our brewery runs on 100% renewable solar energy with SDG&E Power 100 program, and we compost at our brewery. We publish annual sustainability goals around water usage, energy usage, waste emissions, and CO2 emissions to keep ourselves accountable. We are thrilled to now be working on our Change Climate certification and truly say our business is contributing the same amount (sometimes more) of carbon offsets to match our GHG emissions measured through certifying
