Carbon neutral accreditation

Credible certification for carbon neutral products, services, events or organisations

What is carbon neutral?

Carbon neutral is a term used to describe when the greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere by an organisation over a certain time period, for example, 12 months, are mitigated through the purchase and retirement of carbon offsets. In doing so, the emissions caused by the organisation are offset by projects which are directly removing, avoiding, or capturing carbon. 

How does an organisation become carbon neutral?

The process of becoming a carbon neutral business or organisation can be achieved in three simple steps. We start with an accurate measurement or validation of your carbon emissions using GHG Protocol. The next step is to help you implement a carbon reduction plan which delivers approximately 5% emissions reduction per annum. Finally we purchase and retire carbon offsets and plant trees to mitigate your emissions. Our process is robust and accurate to ensure that you can communicate your carbon neutral status without accusations of greenwashing.
