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.

Our programs are 100% outdoors in wild forests, so without sustainability we wouldn't have our "outdoor classrooms" for generations to come! So far we are a 1% For The Planet member and have donated to 11 environmental nonprofits in our region. We are also working to reforest & restore our land by interplanting at least 40 native plants each year with our classes. By becoming Climate Neutral Certified, we will have visual accountability to our community + all of the other brands who have undergone the process before us. Showing that it's possible no matter the size or purpose of the organization, to reduce emissions today and put plans in place for future work.
