Can a label request be denied ?

03 June 2022

Our certification protocol is public.

A company, product or activity that is deemed to be in conflict with sustainable development and the transformation to a Net Zero society may be denied the CO2 Neutral label. 

Offsetting can only be carried out by certified climate projects. Climate projects related to nuclear power, fuel switching, industrial gases, coal mine methane and large hydroelectric power plants are excluded. 

If a company does not reduce its emissions compared to the average of the previous three years without a valid explanation and cannot demonstrate the implementation of reduction actions, the label will be withdrawn. Reduction results against interim targets must be achieved in order to retain the label.

If false or misleading communication is proven, the label may also be withdrawn.
