Carbon management for companies

Comprehensive carbon management includes calculating your carbon footprint, developing a roadmap of reduction measures, setting climate targets, and communicating credibly both internally and externally. We help you to break down these elements of your climate journey into feasible and concrete steps. Whether in the context of reporting obligations (CH and EU), to meet investor requirements or to promote sustainable positioning - integrated and holistic carbon management pays off for every company, regardless of industry.


Swiss Climate has developed a unique model for the carbon management of your company according to ISO 14064-1 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. Companies with a holistic climate strategy can then be awarded the Swiss Climate CO2 label in gold, silver or bronze.
