I am a company or an organization

To avoid the worst effects of climate change, science tells us that we must limit global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius. This will not be achieved without the crucial help of companies and organizations.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is therefore calling on businesses and organizations to take the lead on climate action and urges them to sign the Climate Neutral Now Pledge.
The pledge represents a growing movement of organizations taking the lead on reducing emissions and accelerating the global journey to a climate-neutral future.

Any business or organization can contribute to limiting temperature rise and take climate action by taking the following these three steps:

1. Measure the company/organization’s climate footprint;
2. Reduce its greenhouse gas emissions as much as is doable;
3. Compensate the emissions that are unavoidable by using United Nations Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs).

These units are generated by climate-friendly development projects vetted by the UNFCCC.

Companies and organizations are setting science-based targets, committing to purchasing and generating 100% renewable energy, steering their investment portfolios towards low-carbon assets and enhancing the efficiency of their processes. However, even their best efforts to avoid and reduce emissions does not manage to make them climate neutral.

Supporting emission reduction projects through the purchase of CERs helps accelerate the global reduction of emissions, gives organizations the opportunity to reinforce their leadership position vis-à-vis climate change and brings sustainable development benefits to communities located in developing countries.

To read more about these projects and their sustainable development benefits, you can visit our online platform, where you can buy these compensation units or offsets.
