The CarbonCare® Labeling Scheme encourages and recognizes the efforts of organizations, entities and groups in tackling climate change in 3 steps we call MRO - Measuring, Reducing and Offsetting carbon footprints.
Indicated by the number of leaves, labels of different levels of emissions reduction and/or offset against a defined base year will be awarded to the applying entity.
For first time application, the applying entity must have in place a verified carbon audit report in accordance with the CarbonCare® Label Protocol, a carbon footprint management plan and a declaration of a minimum 5% carbon reduction commitment.
