Climate Neutral Certified: 37 Outdoor Brands to Support Today

Let’s be honest, though our intentions may be good, trying to buy eco-friendly products that are sustainably made is a bit of a minefield. With so many factors to consider, from air miles and production processes to packaging and materials, it can be hard to know how ‘eco-friendly’ our choices actually are.

As soon as you delve deeper, there seems to be many pros and cons to the sustainable options available, leaving consumers somewhat confuzzled about what to do.

Is buying second hand or not buying at all the only answer?

Thankfully, not. This year sees the start of an essential revolution towards sustainable business where companies can become Climate Neutral Certified. Clear labelling on products will help consumers understand exactly what they’re getting as a result of brands and companies committing to a positive climate future.


What is Climate Neutral

Climate Neutral is a non-profit organisation founded by Biolite CEO, Jonathan Cedar and Peak Design CEO, Peter Dering. Together, they saw the growing need for carbon accountability to be the new normal for responsible business. They created a means to measure and label environmental impact resulting in enlisted and committed brands becoming Climate Neutral Certified.

Climate Neutral believe that:

Brands, together with their consumers, can lead the transition to a low-carbon economy by placing a price on carbon within their business

Climate Neutral enables enlisted brands to measure their carbon emissions, purchase carbon credits to offset their entire footprint, and identify opportunities to reduce emissions.

The end result is greater accountability, a drive towards meaningful change and empowerment of consumers to make informed decisions that support positive climate action.

Climate Neutral Label

Having a climate responsibility benchmark for companies and brands to aspire to will only have positive outcomes. The more brands that get on board, the more pressure there will be for all products to have a Climate Neutral label attached to them. As well as the huge environmental impacts this will start to have, it is also great news for consumers. We are able make informed decisions about purchases without being sidetracked by brands who aren’t stepping up to their environmental responsibilities.

    Look out for the Climate Neutral label and know that the brand you are considering buying from:

    • Measures their carbon footprint
    • Offsets the carbon they have emitted
    • Reduces their carbon where they can

It’s important to mention at this point, the many superb eco-friendly products and brands out there who are not Climate Neutral Certified. Just because they don’t have the certificate, doesn’t mean they’re not doing great things and working tirelessly towards positive environmental change. At some point in the future, we assume that these brands will become Climate Neutral Certified too. But in the meantime, take a look at some of our favourite eco-products and brands in our Eco section.
