Product Carbon Footprint / Climate Neutral Product

Convince environmentally conscious consumers

With TÜV NORD CERT's verification of the "CO2 footprint" for products (Product Carbon Footprint), manufacturers can have their production-related greenhouse gas emissions checked and use this as a basis for exploiting potential savings.

Companies that also wish to make their products climate-neutral can have their certificates from recognised climate protection projects purchased and decommissioned as compensation for CO2 emissions confirmed as part of an extended verification process. The TÜV NORD "climate-neutral product" test mark is awarded for the verified compensation.

target group


Verification is aimed at manufacturers of all types of products that

  • want to sustainably align their business processes and thus make a contribution to climate protection
  • want to address environmentally conscious customers in particular by reducing greenhouse gases
  • want to be shown possibilities for the reduction of emissions through the independent evaluation of neutral experts

TÜV test mark as a strong signal

A separate TÜV NORD standard was established for the verification of "climate-neutral companies", which is based on TÜV NORD CERT's experience in the field of national and international climate protection. TÜV NORD CERT has extensive knowledge and national and international references in the field of climate protection. We are accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) in accordance with ISO 14065 for verifying greenhouse gas balances (carbon footprints) in accordance with ISO 14064-3 and for verification within the framework of the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU-ETS). Furthermore, we are accredited by the United Nations Framework Convetion on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to validate and verify international climate protection projects.

We are looking forward to your inquiry
