ENGAGE

We go beyond calculating and offsetting emissions and offer a range of additional services that help our partners better engage with their stakeholders on climate action including their customers, employees, investors, competitors, and regulators.

CLIMATE DESIGNATIONS

Our designation program helps our clients differentiate themselves as climate leaders. Clients reduce their emissions and purchase offsets to achieve varying levels of carbon-management commitment. Companies, products, and events can be designated as ‘Climate Friendly’, ‘Carbon Neutral’, or ‘Carbon Positive’.

It is important that the Offsetters’ Climate logos mean the same thing for everyone – so we have developed a list of strict criteria that an organization, product, or event must meet to achieve these designations. Click here for more information on our climate designations.

Carbon Positive partners have measured their carbon footprint for all Scope 1, 2 and material Scope 3 emissions sources – as wells as immaterial Scope 3 emissions, if the data is easily accessible. All efforts to reduce significant sources of emissions have been made – or if the client is in the early stages of their carbon management program, they have set reduction targets and plans are underway to achieve them. These clients offset their full footprint each year, plus at least an additional 10% of emissions as a commitment to creating a positive and lasting impact on the environment.

Carbon Neutral partners have measured their carbon footprint from all Scope 1, 2 and significant Scope 3 emissions sources – and other Scope 3 emissions sources if the data is easily accessible. All efforts to reduce significant sources of emissions have been made – or if the client is in the early stages of their carbon management program, they have set reduction targets, and plans are underway to achieve them. All remaining emissions are offset—reducing their overall footprint to net-zero.



Carbon Neutral Offsetters

Organizations with this climate designation have made significant reductions and/or offset a material emissions source(s) accounting for at least 25% of their GHGs.

Carbon Neutral Offsetters

Climate leaders take ownership of their direct and indirect emissions, and look for opportunities to reduce their impacts as much as possible. Becoming a climate leader means being innovative and using thought leadership to inspire change across industries.

Ostrom’s Marketing and Client Engagement team specializes in helping our clients promote their emissions reductions strategies, sustainability commitments, and climate action accomplishments. We work closely with our Advisory Services team to help our partners become climate leaders, and learn how to showcase their achievements through transparent and clear storytelling, so as to inspire others in their industry to take action.

Offsetters’ marketing support services include developing effective language and engaging stories around our clients’ reduction strategies and sustainability commitments, creating infographics to visually represent their programs, marketing their achievements through relevant channels, and assisting with press releases and creation of other promotional materials relating to their carbon management programs.
