Global Cli­ma­te® Certified

the dyna­mic approach to your CO₂ reduction

Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on & Communication

We at Global Cli­ma­te® always choose CO₂ reduc­tion over CO₂ com­pen­sa­ti­on. Our goal is to pursue a dyna­mic stra­te­gy of decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on tog­e­ther with our cli­ents. For that we award two certificates:

decarb­NOW®

This cer­ti­fi­ca­te is only awar­ded to com­pa­nies that are genui­nely working on decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on or CO₂ reduction.

This inclu­des set­ting veri­fia­ble reduc­tion tar­gets and an annual review by our audi­tors. After all, decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on is a dyna­mic pro­cess that requi­res con­ti­nuous moni­to­ring and ongo­ing opti­miz­a­ti­on. Tog­e­ther, we work with you to suc­cess­ful­ly reduce your CO₂ foot­print. To keep up the drive of the reduc­tion pro­cess, the decarb­NOW® cer­ti­fi­ca­te will be gran­ted as Global Cli­ma­te® Cer­ti­fied in sub­se­quent years if actual pro­gres­ses have been veri­fied and mea­su­red by Global Cli­ma­te®. Our label decarb­NOW® the­re­fo­re does not stand for ‘cli­ma­te neu­tra­li­ty’, but for com­pa­nies that are serious and honest about taking respon­si­bi­li­ty, and hard working on their company’s CO₂ reduction.

Global Cli­ma­te® Certified

We award our Global Cli­ma­te® cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on to com­pa­nies that advan­ce their own decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on and achie­ve mea­sura­ble success.

As evi­dence of decar­bo­niz­a­ti­on, a finan­cial data-based CO2 assess­ment of the com­pa­ny is pre­pa­red with our tool Sco2pes® and veri­fied by Global Cli­ma­te® ana­lysts. Cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on is car­ri­ed out annually.

For the award of the cer­ti­fi­ca­te, the purcha­se of cli­ma­te pro­tec­tion cer­ti­fi­ca­tes is not necessa­ry and will not be taken into account. Only genui­ne CO2 reduc­tions within the com­pa­ny (impro­ved pro­ces­ses, cli­ma­te-con­scious beha­vio­ral chan­ges, rene­wa­ble energy sources) count.

Audi­tors’ certification 

Global Cli­ma­te® GmbH coope­ra­tes with the estab­lis­hed Rewe­Con GmbH Steu­er­be­ra­tungs­ge­sell­schaft. The­re­fo­re, in addi­ti­on to the pos­si­bi­li­ty of obtai­ning a decarb­NOW or Global Cli­ma­te® cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on, a tax con­sul­tant cer­ti­fi­ca­te can also be issued on request.

Rewe­Con GmbH Steu­er­be­ra­tungs­ge­sell­schaft is a renow­ned tax con­sul­ting com­pa­ny spe­cia­li­zed in sus­taina­bi­li­ty with offices in Stutt­gart, Munich and Linz (Aus­tria). In an inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry net­work of tax con­sul­tants, lawy­ers and audi­tors, it offers com­pre­hen­si­ve con­sul­ting and audi­t­ing ser­vices from one source.

Upon request, Rewe­Con GmbH Tax Con­sul­ting Com­pa­ny will exami­ne the com­mis­sio­ned cli­ma­te audit and com­pli­an­ce with the goals of the CO₂ reduc­tion. The tax con­sul­ting com­pa­ny reports on this in the form of a tax con­sul­tant cer­ti­fi­ca­te on the cor­rect­ness and com­ple­teness of the results as well as com­pli­an­ce with legal requirements.

Alt­hough the review of the results of the cli­ma­te audit by a tax con­sul­tancy firm is vol­un­ta­ry, the bene­fit clear­ly is the enhan­ced public credi­bi­li­ty. The addres­sees can rely on the fact that all audi­t­ing princi­ples in accordance with Pro­fes­sio­nal Gui­de­li­ne 1–3/1988 of the Insti­tu­te of Public Audi­tors in Ger­ma­ny (Insti­tut der Wirt­schafts­prü­fer, IdW) have been app­lied, and that the audi­t­ing pro­ce­du­re has been impar­ti­al, objec­ti­ve, and unbiased.

We distance our­sel­ves from Greenwashing!
