Carbon Commitment

The certificate for start-up businesses

To gain one of our full certificates you need to have at least 12 months of activity and have an established operational model. This means that many start-ups and businesses <3 years old are unable to apply.

So what can you do if you are too new to join one of our standard memberships?

You can make a commitment!

Our "Carbon Commitment" membership demonstrates that you have made a firm commitment to calculate and reduce your carbon footprint once you are ready to do so.

Application for this certificate represents a commitment to calculate your emissions and to apply for a membership package that leads to full certification within 12 months.

You can read our full certification criteria here.

What do you get?

When you join our "Carbon Commitment" programme you get a licence to use our "Carbon Commitment" badge on your website, emails and other marketing material for up to 12 months, until you join in full.

You can also contact us at any time to ask questions and for advice.

What are you committing to do?

You are committing, when you are ready to switch to a full membership, to do the following:

  1. Provide the data we need to enable us to calculate your business's full carbon footprint in accordance with the GHG Corporate Protocol and Value Chain Standards.
  2. Set long term goals aligned to a 1.5°C pathway.
  3. Set a short-term action plan each year stating the carbon reduction goals you intend to carry out on the next 12-18 months.
  4. Publish your business's carbon footprint, handprint and reduction targets on the Go Climate Positive website.

What is the price?

"Carbon Commitment" membership costs £200+VAT per year.

What do you have to do?

When your 12 month commitment period is ended you need to either apply for a membership package that leads to one of our other certificates or stop using the certificate.
