CarbonFree® Certified

CarbonFree® Certified logo

The CarbonFree® Product Certification label is aimed at increasing awareness of product emissions and recognizing companies that are compensating for their carbon footprint. The label was created in response to the growing market for eco-friendly products and consumer demand for transparent, credible and readily accessible information at the point of purchase. By determining a product’s carbon footprint, reducing that footprint where possible, and offsetting the remaining carbon emissions associated with the product, Carbonfund.org has created a meaningful, credible and environmentally beneficial way for businesses to provide carbon-neutral products to their customers.
