Carbon Neutral Product and
Carbon Neutral Service
Certification Standard

The Carbon Neutral Product and Carbon Neutral Service certifications are for businesses that want to offer carbon neutral products and services.

Carbon Neutral Products and Services Certification

All businesses certified under the NoCO2 Certification can automatically supply accredited carbon neutral products and services.

For other businesses, who may not want to ‘go the whole hog’ but still demonstrate leadership in the fight against climate change, CRI also offers the Carbon Neutral Product and Carbon Neutral Service Certification Programs.

Businesses that offer certified carbon neutral products and services position themselves to attract and retain consumers who want to reduce their impact on the climate.

The Program logo alerts climate-conscious consumers about the action your business has taken in offering carbon neutral products or services and provides them confidence that their purchasing decision will result in positive action in reducing carbon emissions.

How to get started

The first step to certifying a product or service as carbon neutral is to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) by our technical audit team.

The LCA calculates the carbon footprint of the product or service throughout its useful life from manufacture, including all inputs, to transportation and usage through to disposal or cessation.

For example, if your business provides a service that has an easily definable boundary, such as freight services, and wants to only make that particular service assessed as carbon neutral, as opposed to the whole company, CRI would do a comprehensive audit of all emissions resulting from the service itself. A carbon neutral certification for the product or service is achieved by implementing carbon reduction strategies and purchasing carbon offsets for any remaining emissions.
