Make your business CO2 Responsible

Become CO2 Responsible

What Does CO2 Responsible Mean?

The CO2 Responsible seal represents businesses that have taken responsibility for their CO2 emissions by offsetting them through our reforestation program that creates long-term income opportunities in some of the poorest parts of the world.

When you buy a CO2 Responsible product, you are supporting much more than a business that takes accountability for their environmental impact; you are helping farmers in low-income countries plant trees on their land resulting in their livelihoods becoming more resilient to the effects of climate change.  The result of our partnership is felt on a grassroots community level by providing income opportunities and real tools to tackle climate change.
