Offsetting with climate-neutral label

Offset your unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions through a carbon offset project and receive the myclimate climate-neutral label.

With the myclimate emissions calculator for companies you can compensate for your emissions simply and easily. To offset, input all your the relevant operational CO₂ emissions of your business or organisation for the last financial year (except for processed materials and delivery). myclimate automatically compares your data with reference companies, marks deviations from the norm and supports you in completing your data submission. Immediately after your data has been verified, the successful offsetting of your emissions and the payment of your licence fee, you will receive your individual “climate-neutral operations” label.

The myclimate climate-neutral label verifiably indicates which greenhouse gas emissions are offset in myclimate carbon offset projects.

Using the myclimate climate-neutral label

Using the tracking number or the QR code on your climate-neutral label, your customers and business partners can trace your CO2 offsetting and find out about the carbon offset projects you support. Communicate your commitment to climate protection transparently by using the “climate-neutral operations” label in your corporate communications or marketing material.

Learn more about the correct use of the myclimate climate-neutral label in the myclimate Corporate Design Manual.

 

FAQ

Climate-neutral label "climate-neutral operations"

How much does the climate-neutral label cost?

For the generation and use of the climate-neutral label, we charge a licence fee of CHF 500 per year, plus VAT. The costs for the calculation and creation of the climate-neutral label are added to the offsetting costs for the offset CO₂.

How long is the climate-neutral label valid for?

The climate-neutral label is created based on the financial year offset and issued for the current year. The label is valid until 31 March of the following year.

 

What data will I need?

The following categories must be included in the carbon footprint so that offsetting on this basis is sufficient for awarding the climate neutral label:

  • Energy and fuel consumption including upstream emissions
  • Business travel and accommodation
  • Catering for employees (meals and drinks) in the company's own cafeteria/canteen 
  • IT and printed matter
  • Disposal and recycling of operational waste
  • Water consumption

The inclusion of employee commuting in the carbon footprint is recommended. For further help, we have put together a data entry guide for you. Download it here.

 

 

Can I also get the climate-neutral label for past years?

No, sadly that is not possible! The label can only be earned for the most recent financial year.

How is the financial year defined?

A financial year runs from 1 January to 31 December (the same as a calendar year).

 

How are “operations” defined?

For climate-neutral operations, the annual direct and indirect climate-impacting emissions from an organisation's operations are taken into account. What primarily differentiates a climate-neutral company is the non-inclusion of emissions directly related to the products, i.e. arising from materials, packaging, delivery, use and disposal of the products.

Can I use my label / tracking number the following year? 

The label and the tracking number are always only valid for one year. A new label and tracking number are generated for each offset financial year with the issue of the corresponding climate-neutral label.
