Green commitments aren't for show: The climate label customers trust

Looking at product label

Just like with emissions, when it comes to carbon commitments, there’s a lot of pollution out there.

So let us clear the air.

At the Carbon Trust, we can help your business measure, manage and reduce the carbon footprint of your products. And more importantly, our footprint label makes these efforts clear to your customers, so they can make more informed purchases. 

Our product label certification shows your commitment to sustainability. It assures customers that your carbon footprint has been measured to rigorous, internationally recognised standards. Think of it as a stamp of approval for your product’s decarbonisation journey. You’ll create carbon transparency and build trust, so consumers will choose you as the sustainable choice.

The climate emergency means it’s no longer enough to say you’re still researching your business’s carbon reduction regimen. The time for talking is over. It’s time to act.

Consumers are making more sustainable buying choices

Across Europe and North America, we’ve found that 2/3 consumers are more positive about brands that take concrete steps to reduce their product’s carbon emissions. In addition, 2/3 consumers think carbon footprint labelling on products is a good idea*.   

These figures were highest in France, Italy and Spain at 80%, 82% and 79% respectively, and growing in all markets surveyed.

You can download our full report here, but the key takeaway is clear: Worldwide, consumers are looking to make credible, sustainable choices every time they shop.
