In response to the urgency of the climate crisis, La Honda Winery is proud to announce that it is officially Climate Neutral Certified. La Honda joins thousands of other brands that have earned the standard by measuring and offsetting all of their 2020 carbon emissions and reducing future emissions.
Climate Neutral Certified is the leading consumer label designating carbon neutrality. It is carried by brands that have voluntarily stepped up to take responsibility for the greenhouse gas emissions generated in the production, operations, and shipping of their goods and services.
“La Honda Winery is proud to start to measure and help unravel the damage we’re all doing to future generations’ increasingly dire prospects of maintaining even close to the same standards of living and environment that we’ve enjoyed without making significant adjustments for too long.” says David Page, owner of La Honda.
“La Honda Winery and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions,” says Climate Neutral CEO, Austin Whitman. “Our label helps consumers identify these brands. It’s a recognizable and trusted symbol that turns everyday purchases into meaningfully positive climate action.”
Climate Neutral’s certification is based on internationally recognized standards for carbon measurement, neutrality, and offsetting. Each brand must measure Scope 1, 2, and 3 cradle-to-customer greenhouse gas emissions for the prior calendar year. Then a brand must buy verified carbon credits to offset its entire footprint. This directs investment into critical carbon sequestration projects such as forest conservation, renewable energy, and carbon capture technologies. Finally, brands commit to a reduction action plan to cut future emissions within a 12-24 month timeline, reporting progress on those plans annually. The process is repeated annually when companies must re-certify.
