The process of certification and issuing a certificate
You or your colleague can calculate the expected GHG emissions to be carbon neutralised using the free calculator. If you do not wish to use this service, our experts will do it for you.
Data collection and calculation
Based on the information provided on the data request forms and a site visit, a study will be carried out to determine whether your company, service, event, etc. can be decarbonised.
For example, reduction programmes are drawn up for electricity and gas consumption, vehicle use, logistical solutions, posting, waste treatment, the cost of transporting employees to work, or even the operation of refrigeration systems. These are rationalised, reorganised to lower values or to replace previous practices with other solutions.
Local emission reductions and carbon credit purchasing
The range of investments that can be made is very diverse. From building an employee shower and bicycle parking, to building home office collaboration systems, to participating in solar energy, wind turbines or forest conservation programmes.
(According to recent findings, calculating the latter carbon credit is more complicated than the industry previously thought. More specific conditions and specific calculations are required to obtain carbon credits. Our experts will provide an accurate analysis or expert opinion on the pros and cons.)
Meeting the crediting conditions
Projects must meet a set of strict criteria to certify that the intended result has been achieved and is actually being achieved. One of the most important, for example, is additionality, i.e. that the project could not have been carried out without the use of carbon credits.
Once the calculations have been made and completed, the registration is done with clear data and published in an accessible and verifiable way. This task will be provided by the registration body.
This must be done in a traceable, identifiable manner. Thus, each individual credit must:
- a producer,
- serial number,
- type, according to the nature of the activity,
- classification and
- a certificate issued by an independent certification body.
For the purchaser of voluntary credits in this way:
- ensure carbon neutrality, i.e. a profitable, long-term operation,
- a well communicated promotional value,
- It reflects the credibility of the company and its commitment to sustainability,
- increases employee and customer engagement,
- its business partners can rely on it in the long term as it meets newer standards.
For green projects:
- a source of funding,
- enables them to continue operating,
- that can slow global warming in a chosen area,
- It can slow or stop the loss of habitat in certain areas of the planet and the associated negative processes (loss of farmland, drinking water supply problems, job losses, rising sea levels, etc.).
The validation objective is met
Carbon credits are “retired” when they have reached the end of their “life cycle”, fulfilled the purpose for which they were created: they have achieved their expected result. Specifically, when the removal of 1 tonne of CO2eq pollutant emitted from the atmosphere or its prevention has been achieved. It is irrevocably entered in the Registry’s registration database.
The key to sustainable operation
Carbon neutrality is an indispensable element of ecological sustainability.

Sooner or later, the operation of a company will generate a carbon surplus that requires neutralisation. Economic crises hit businesses in waves. To prevent this, mandatory and voluntary carbon neutralisation can be achieved by investing in genuine neutralisation projects.
