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.

Avoid deforestation

Description

Projects that reduce the risk of deforestation in important forest ecosystems.

We believe in supporting and highlighting the importance of sustainable coffee practices in ecological, economic, social, and technological terms. At Standart, we will brazenly defend our right to fill our pages in this dictatorial fashion, and we support those who believe they can make a difference. In our magazine, we celebrate those that apply this belief in the way they go about their daily business, whether it be running a sustainable farm in Myanmar, recording a kick-ass podcast in Chicago, or managing a zero-waste coffee shop in Osaka. Sustainability is at the core of what Standart is all about.
