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 PopSockets, we believe in making impactful products to support happier and healthier digital lifestyles in a sustainable way and using our platform to catalyze positive change. Our sustainability approach involves making products that help extend the life of carbon-intensive mobile phones while using a minimal amount of materials, measuring our carbon footprint, and embracing the power of plants in our products, policies, and partnerships to reduce our footprint. We offset remaining carbon emissions by supporting partners who have innovative models to reduce food waste and facilitate a transition to plant-rich diets, two of the most significant yet often overlooked strategies to address climate change on a global scale.
