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.

At Nomad, we are passionate about wild places, adventures, and unspoiled nature. We've grown a lot since our first Kickstarter in 2012, expanding our product range, our internal team, and our company goals. Along with all this company growth, our carbon footprint and impact on the places we love has grown too. So we've decided that a big part of our mission going forward is to reduce our impact while leading the way towards a more sustainable future. From offsetting our carbon footprint to removing single-use plastic in our packaging, we'll keep pushing to implement sustainable solutions that aid in safeguarding our planet's future.
