Everything we make, buy, and sell leaves a carbon trail.
From running an office to manufacturing products and shipping packages, businesses are responsible for climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions must decrease steeply in order to halt climate change.
The solutions exist.
We simply need to fund them.
And having everyone pay a price for the carbon they emit is the best way to do that: it would spur low-carbon innovation and limit emissions. But this isn't happening fast enough anywhere - and in many cases, it's not happening at all.
Brands can lead by choosing to measure, offset, and reduce their emissions.
Every company in the world should know its carbon footprint. Every company should invest in offsetting and reducing that footprint. Every consumer should be able to pick brands that take responsibility for their carbon emissions.
When that happens, we'll see investment into solutions at a scale that can restore the climate.
As more consumer brands become Climate Neutral Certified, we will:
Drive millions of dollars into climate change solutions
Demonstrate that companies can pay for their carbon
Help consumers find and support climate-conscious brands
Decrease global carbon emissions
