Convince environmentally conscious consumers

Carbon neutral products are becoming ever more popular when purchasers wish to make a direct contribution to climate protection. By carbon neutral product we mean a product whose carbon footprint has been offset by recognised and certified climate protection projects. A suitable range of carbon neutral products is needed from manufacturers in order that consumers can make a conscious decision in favour of climate protection.  

TÜV NORD CERT offers verification for carbon neutral products to manufacturing companies who are interested in claiming carbon neutrality for a single product or a product range, thereby making a contribution to climate protection.  

A dedicated TÜV NORD Standard was created for this verification, which is based on our experience in the area of national and international climate protection. Following successful verification, we issue the TÜV NORD “Carbon Neutral Product” mark alongside our certificate.

FAQs on verification as carbon neutral product

For whom is certification of interest?
  • Manufacturers of products of all kinds who are aiming at sustainable operation and want to make a contribution to climate protection
  • Who particularly wish to attract customers through reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • And who wish to identify possibilities of reducing their carbon footprint based on independent assessment by neutral experts
What are the prerequisites for verification as carbon neutral product?

The prerequisite is creation of a carbon footprint, otherwise known as a greenhouse gas statement, for the respective product in accordance with the requirements of the TÜV NORD Standard; this is carried out by the organization itself or by a specialist consultant. TÜV NORD CERT can advise on this upon request.

If verification as “Carbon Neutral Product” is desired, valid CO2 certificates from climate protection projects (carbon credits) should be retained in order to offset the emissions shown in the statement.
