Ecolabel Spotlight: Climate Neutral
Climate Neutral is the latest ecolabel to be added to .eco
As the community of environmental certifications and ecolabels continues to evolve and expand, we regularly add new certifications to the list of over 450 certifications supported by the .eco profile system and on our sister site Ecolabel Index. Climate Neutral is the latest to be added.
What is Climate Neutral?
With the growing risk of disastrous climate change, more and more companies and organizations are looking to reduce their environmental impact by taking stock of their carbon emissions and moving towards carbon neutrality.
Becoming carbon neutral means that an entity has either reduced their greenhouse gas emissions to zero or is fully offsetting those emissions. Emissions can be offset by purchasing carbon credits or directly investing in projects that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, such as tree planting or habitat restoration.
Climate Neutral is a relatively new certification that helps organizations build a plan to achieve carbon neutrality. By measuring their carbon emissions and then by taking steps to reduce them or purchasing the requisite offsets, organizations can achieve carbon neutrality and the associated certification.
