What is Climate Smart Certification?

Climate Smart Certification is an award-winning training program that helps small and medium businesses in every industry create a greenhouse gas inventory, then devise a GHG emissions reduction plan to take action and make change.

Over the course of 4 to 6 months, we will guide you from “How do we start?” to “Wow, we have a solid plan, real data, and support to achieve our carbon goals!”
