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.

Our sustainability journey really started as we've begun to understand the amount of difference we can make through our choices. It's a fallacy that businesses shouldn't be good stewards of the planet, and we work in a field that is known for excessive waste, so we're out to change that. In working towards achieving and maintaining Climate Neutral and B-Corporation certifications, we've also partnered with Water First through 1% for the Planet and developed our own Untold Story Fund. These initiatives are all working towards wanting to make a positive impact. With our clients, we are striving to work with brands and organizations that hold the same values, and are putting people and the planet above profits.
