The ClimatePartner seal identifies carbon neutral products, their packaging, services or companies. For this purpose, carbon emissions are calculated and offset via certified carbon offset projects. In this way, companies are sensitised to climate action and consumers are given the opportunity to consume in a climate-friendly way.
ClimatePartner GmbH was founded in 2006 and enables companies to take climate action. ClimatePartner offers solutions for calculating carbon emissions, emission reduction measurements as well as offsetting carbon emissions via certifified carbon offset projects.
The ID number and an associated web address on the label reveal the amount of carbon emissions offset as well as the carbon offset project that a company supports.
