Climate Neutral works to decrease global carbon emissions by getting brands to measure, offset, and reduce the carbon they emit. We believe consumers and brands must work together to drive the world toward the zero net emissions future that science tells us we urgently need.
We built a simple set of tools and a certification that makes carbon footprinting more accessible, sets clear guidelines for carbon offsetting, and inspires brands to work on reducing emissions directly.
When a brand gets certified, it achieves zero net carbon emissions for all of the carbon it creates while making and delivering its products or services for a year. The Climate Neutral Certified label makes it easy for consumers to find certified brands.
We envision a world where all consumers have the ability to choose brands that take responsibility for their carbon emissions, and all brands have the tools to do so.
The History of Climate Neutral
Climate Neutral was born out of the direct experience of our two founding organizations, BioLite and Peak Design, which have been carbon neutral since 2012 and 2018. They knew first-hand that every business contributes to climate change, but most businesses find it too complicated to do anything about it.
Jonathan Cedar, CEO of BioLite, and Peter Dering, CEO of Peak Design, came together with the shared belief that it must be simpler to measure and remove carbon emissions, and if it were, more businesses would do it. Together they launched Climate Neutral in early 2019.
Addressing the planet’s need for urgent climate action, Climate Neutral enables both consumers and brands to take immediate action. Our process makes it easy for brands to zero out their carbon footprint and reduce future emissions, while our label helps consumers quickly identify those brands who have done so.
We've set our sights set on scaling our impact and are now welcoming brands to get certified for prior year emissions. Join us in our mission to decrease global carbon emissions.
