Commons is a Climate Neutral Certified brand in accordance with the The Climate Neutral Certified Standard
(2023 version) administered by the Change Climate Project.
We collaborated with the Change Climate team to measure our brand’s total 2022 carbon footprint, set time-bound Reduction Action Plans, and compensate for our annual emissions by investing in carbon projects that met Change Climate’s rigorous Standard. For further details, see this blog post
As part of this certification process, the Commons team estimated our company emissions following the guidance of The Climate Neutral Certified Standard and the GHG Protocol’s Corporate Standard
via the use of an internally created tool. The Change Climate Project’s team reviewed, provided feedback on, and accepted these estimates, but they were not third-party verified. Commons’ Emissions Reductions Plans do not constitute science-based targets. Commons used carbon credits from the Manoa REDD+ Project and Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project to offset our 2022 company footprint.
