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 Wild Rye, we are dedicated to an ethical and sustainable supply chain. We use only premium materials so your apparel lasts a lifetime, and doesn't end up in a landfill. As we look ahead, we are incorporating more recycled materials into each of our products. We've transitioned to using recycled and recyclable mailers, as well as recycled poly bags. We also offer our customers the option to further offset their carbon use with each purchase and continually seek opportunities to care for our planet.
