Carbon neutrality is achieving net zero carbon emissions by individuals, organizations, businesses etc. It is done by measuring amount of carbon released and compensating it by preventing equivalent amount of emission from happening somewhere else, or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference. For instance, a corporation may plant trees in different places to offset the electricity it consumes. Carbon neutrality aims at achieving a zero carbon footprint. All those organizations and individuals seeking carbon neutral status entails reducing and/or avoiding carbon emissions first so that only unavoidable emissions are offset.

   Carbon Neutral Certification provides organizations the credibility to illustrate their emission reduction efforts.  It helps communicate product’s resource efficiency, drives sales, builds strong brand image and most importantly helps in cost reductions. Carbon Neutral Certification by National Carbon Management Association (NCMA) recognizes an organization’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions responsibly. Through this recognition, NCMA confirms that the organization recognizes the problem of climate change and is sincerely working towards curbing emissions.

   We at NCMA help and support Indian organizations to become a “Carbon Neutral Company” under the Carbon Offset Standard. Our Carbon Offset program is recognized and valid in 187 countries including India. People are increasingly seeking to adopt carbon neutral (Eco-Friendly) lifestyle because 70% people have “personal experience” of global warming.  And doing business or buying product and services from a Carbon Neutral Company makes a concrete contribution to climate protection.
