Proof positive of your environmental credentials

Verify and declare your carbon neutral achievement

Comprehensive confirmation of carbon neutrality

Social and legal pressures, government legislation, stakeholders and consumers are all driving the growing demand for sustainable, carbon-free goods and services. For more on this, see how we work with you.

Clearway’s Carbon Neutral Certification scheme provides visible verification of your success in reducing carbon emissions to zero. Our four-tier standards scheme provides you with a full package of services and credible proof of neutrality, whatever the type and size of your requirement.

The in-depth methodology and design of our Carbon Neutral Certification scheme sets it apart from competitors. All our standards are compliant with UK Government guidelines, Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard, DEFRA Company GHG Reporting Guidance, the UK Listed Company Mandatory Carbon Reporting 2013, and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Value Chain Standard.

Clearway’s One Star Carbon Neutral standard is suited to companies starting out on the road to measuring and managing GHG emissions.

The assessment scope complies with the mandatory requirements of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Standard and UK mandatory carbon reporting from 2013 as proposed by DEFRA.

Clearway’s Two Star Carbon Neutral standard comprises a ‘full’ carbon footprint including supply chain (Scope 3) emissions for full compliance with Greenhouse Gas Protocol and DEFRA recommendations.

Two Star assessments are also suited to companies that have previously carried out a One Star assessment only and now wish to have a more complete understanding of their organisation’s carbon footprint.

Two Star assessments do not include any specialist support such as site audits to identify potential energy and GHG emission reduction opportunities, support with data collection processes or verification of the carbon footprint, and are therefore most suited to companies with a good handle on their GHG-producing activities, data systems to collect this information, and the accuracy and appropriateness of the collected data.

Clearway’s Three Star Carbon Neutral standard comprises a ‘full’ carbon footprint including supply chain (Scope 3) emissions for full compliance with Greenhouse Gas Protocol and DEFRA recommendations.

Additionally, Three Star Carbon Neutral standard incorporates a site visit by specialist auditors to identify potential energy and GHG emission reduction opportunities, and are therefore suited to companies that wish to cost-effectively reduce their GHG emissions as well as quantify them.

Clearway’s Four Star Carbon Neutral standard also comprises a ‘full’ carbon footprint including supply chain (Scope 3) emissions for full compliance with Greenhouse Gas Protocol and DEFRA recommendations.

Additionally, Four Star Carbon Neutral standard incorporates a site visit by specialist auditors to identify potential energy and GHG emission reduction opportunities, and are therefore suited to companies that wish to cost-effectively reduce their GHG emissions as well as quantify them.

The Four Star Carbon Neutral standard also includes specialist support in relation to data capture processes to help ensure GHG assessments are streamlined with existing business reporting tools.

Finally, Four Star carbon footprints are verified so you can have full confidence in the accuracy of information.
