Your customers and employees expect you to lead on climate.
Built for climate impact
As an independent nonprofit, we follow the science. Our vision is to create the world’s most recognized and trusted climate label, paired with accessible, action-focused tools and resources.
Open access standard
We can work with you end-to-end during certification. Or someone else can help you measure and plan and submit for review. We're open to whatever creates more impact, sooner.
Fits all* businesses
For brands new to climate work, certification is your first roadmap. For those further along, it’s a way to communicate your work and join others. (*Just don’t ask us to certify your oil company.)
Built for communication
The Climate Neutral Certified label is a badge of carbon accountability. It's designed to be credible, rigorous, and clear enough for your Uncle Louie to understand.
Go past carbon accounting
to carbon accountability
Measuring carbon emissions is important - but it is only a first step. Our priority is to get companies to focus on what comes next: using the insights from carbon measurement to take measurable actions. Our label is a symbol of companies that work actively to decarbonize across their entire business - value chain and beyond.

Climate Neutral in the News
“The nonprofit wants to do for a whole array of products what Fair Trade has done for coffee and LEED has done for buildings — hold manufacturers to higher standards, and give consumers some assurance that the item they’re choosing is as climate-friendly as possible.”
“What about the criticism levied by some that carbon offsets are not enough? Actual reductions must also happen? Whitman agrees. That’s why Climate Neutral requires both. For one main reason, according to Whitman: Only a smattering of companies have historically met their commitments. Reductions alone won’t do the trick. And neither will offsets.”
"Climate Neutral offers brands certification if they commit to reducing emissions based on its calculator, which is itself based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a widely-used greenhouse gas accounting standard."
"It's easy to tell if products are organic, Fair Trade certified, or made in America--they often bear a certification stamp to prove it. Why isn't there an equivalent for companies to disclose their impact on climate change?"
