Climate Neutral was launched in 2019 in response to growing global concern about unchecked climate change. Our co-founders observed first-hand that measuring and offsetting their companies' value chain greenhouse gas emissions was far more difficult than it needs to be. So we built a process and set of tools to help other companies, and a label to engage consumers. The Climate Neutral Certified label help consumers shop for brands that have zero net carbon emissions.


Our core technology is a corporate value chain carbon footprinting tool. It democratizes carbon accounting and amplifies our mission to reduce global carbon emissions by greatly increasing the accessibility of carbon management. Over the next five years we plan to drive billions of dollars into low-carbon solutions and send a signal to policy makers: it’s time to put a price on carbon emissions.
