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.

We ask our users to make a change in their daily habits by switching from plastic razors to Leaf razors; we would never ask something of someone else that we aren't ready to do ourselves. So we feel compelled to do our part in finding incremental ways to make an impact from the company all the way through to our users. Becoming Climate Neutral Certified just makes sense.
