London and New York – 17 June 2015 - The CarbonNeutral Company has been recognised as Best Offset Retailer for the fifth year running by the voters of the Environmental Finance awards. The award, voted for by carbon market industry professionals, recognises the company’s consistent and continual excellence in delivering high quality, innovative solutions for its clients’ environmental and sustainability needs.

Quality, Innovation and Client-Centric Delivery Recognised by Carbon Market Professionals

Stephen Killeen, president and chief executive officer of The CarbonNeutral Company, said “We are greatly appreciative and humbled by being selected by our peers for the fifth consecutive year for their recognition of our unwavering dedication to quality and our commitment to our clients’ success which is at the driving force of our business.

“We are honoured to be working in partnership with clients who are committed to taking action on their broad environmental challenges from carbon to renewable energy, water, biodiversity and sustainable development, and to collaborating with innovative, high quality projects from around the globe.  It is this combination which enables us to deliver the environmental programmes which build value for our clients’ businesses and have a positive impact on climate change, communities and natural capital all over the world.”

The CarbonNeutral Company has contracted with more than 310 carbon finance projects in 44 countries since its founding in 1997. It works with clients including Microsoft, Marks and Spencer, Sky and Avis, and has developed a proprietary framework to evaluate the Sustainable Impacts that many carbon finance projects deliver to communities, families and biodiversity.  It is through these additional impacts that the company is able to meet client requirements for alignment with their broader citizenship and supply chain goals. 

The company has also expanded its product range to meet clients’ water and renewable energy goals, recently announcing a programme with H&M for Guarantees of Origin and with Sopra Steria for Water Benefit Certificates.
