Carbon Care Certification

Carbon Care Certification logo

The Carbon Care certification offered by Enviro-access recognizes organizations’ efforts to responsibly manage and reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs). Through this certification, Enviro-access confirms that the organization is sensitive to the problem of climate change and proactive in its emissions management. All efforts that are put into quantifying, reducing and offsetting GHG emissions deserve to be recognized. The Carbon Care Certification provides a tool to proudly convey responsible management of GHG emissions and commitment to act on climate change.

The process to obtain the Enviro-access’ Carbon Care Certification was built in accordance with strict GHG verification and quantification standards to ensure its credibility. The Carbon Care Certification is accessible to private companies as well as public organizations such as financial and educational institutions. Any organization with a GHG inventory meeting the requirements and with tangible proof of its commitment towards GHG reduction is eligible. Two levels of certification are available: basic and carbon-neutral.
