The CarbonCare® Label is a unique scheme. Since its launch in late 2011, over 360 labels have been awarded to listed companies, private companies, government departments, public bodies, social enterprises, NGOs, hotels, commercial buildings/ venues etc. The Scheme has evolved much to reflect and recognise the sustainability efforts of businesses and organisations.
Applicants may choose either one or all of the three initiatives: entity-wide carbon management (CarbonCare® Label/ CarbonCare® Champion Label), best practice for ESG Reporting (CarbonCare® ESG Label) or proactive support for circular economy (CarbonCare® Circularity Label). Each of the labels requires substantive effort to achieve, but they all are a recognition of excellence in the journey to sustainability.
CarbonCare® labels are awarded by CarbonCare InnoLab under the supervision of an independent expert panel. Label certification service is provided by Carbon Care Asia.
2020 Theme: “Race to Zero for Sustainable Recovery”
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economic and social life in Asia and throughout the world. No responsible policy-makers should focus purely on economic recovery without using the opportunity to address climate emergency, which will in all likelihood produce more severe and lasting impacts than the pandemic. For corporate leaders, the changed landscape for social values and customer expectation provides a striking new context for the transition to sustainable business models.
The theme of CarbonCare® Label 2020 responds to the call by the global “Race to Zero” campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions and investors worldwide for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery after the pandemic. Linking decarbonisation to sustainable recovery is the pathway to prevent future threats, create decent jobs and unlock inclusive, sustainable growth in a post-COVID era.
