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.

Sustainability has been ingrained in our mission since inception, yet we recognize that our journey is just beginning. We have pinpointed three pivotal areas for our focus. We've set ambitious goals and devised a five-year roadmap toward achieving climate positivity. Meeting this milestone demands surpassing all previous efforts and fostering a heightened awareness across our sourcing, energy use, production, and shipping processes. Given the magnitude of the challenges—climate change and the depletion of our planet's finite resources—and the stakes involved, our journey starts here: addressing carbon emissions, waste management and plastic use.
