CLIMATE NEUTRAL COMMODITY
commit to impact.
A transparent and publicly available certification standard for climate-neutral commodity transactions and services
Climate Neutral Commodity is a global, Swiss-based and independent initiative that certifies transactions through a third-party assured process of the quality of calculations and offsets of GHG emissions from commodity ‘cradle-to-gate’ or ‘cradle-to-grave’.
Based on the same principles, Climate Neutral Services certification applies to services (e.g. logistics solutions).
Climate Neutral Commodity supports the industry in the journey towards carbon neutrality.
