Climate Neutral has made impressive strides this year combating carbon emissions, even amidst a global pandemic and turbulent economy. In the past 12-months, Climate Neutral certified 145 brands, offsetting more than 200,000 tonnes of CO2.
Climate Neutral is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on generating positive change in corporate carbon responsibility, helping businesses measure and offset their carbon footprints to net-zero. The Climate Neutral Certified consumer-facing label indicates that a brand has taken action to curb its greenhouse gas emissions, effectively creating a much-needed universal standard for corporate carbon responsibility and a call-to-action labeling carbon at point-of-purchase.
The feasible certification process allows companies to scale their sustainability efforts through reduction strategies and verifiable offsets. This framework inevitably democratizes a system for every size business to achieve carbon-neutrality– a large stepping stone in our progression towards decarbonization.
They also launched the BEE calculator, the first carbon calculation tool for Scope 1-3 carbon emissions, making corporate carbon measurement easier for companies.
