Climate Neutral Company

The USIQ certify companies in the United States as Climate Neutral Company (USIQ)

We are certify companies as Climate Neutral Company. Demonstrate your commitment to climate protection.

Climate Neutral Company (USIQ) helps you demonstrate your commitment to climate protection and communicate it through the USIQ climate neutrality certification seal. The urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address environmental challenges has been increasingly recognized in recent years.

The Climate Neutral Business Standard is designed for companies of various sizes, aiming to raise awareness of climate change issues among a wide range of stakeholders. It seeks to initiate greenhouse gas emissions reduction efforts and inform consumers about sustainable practices.

The certification process begins with compiling a CO2 balance sheet to determine existing greenhouse gas emissions according to the USIQ standard, which aligns with the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol).

Various sources of emissions are considered, including electricity consumption, heating systems and vehicle emissions, as well as business travel by employees and paper consumption. Greenhouse gas emissions that cannot currently be reduced can be offset through recognized programs to achieve the status of “Climate Neutral Company (USIQ).”

To obtain certification as a climate-neutral company with a rating of “very good,” 100% compensation of unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions in Scope 1, Scope 2, and partially in Scope 3 is required. Our certification as a climate-neutral company exceeds the basic requirements of Scope 1 and Scope 2.

We prioritize climate protection projects that comply with the stringent Gold Standard. This certification standard is globally recognized for its strict criteria, ensuring the additionality of climate protection projects and adherence to numerous other sustainable development requirements.
