The CarbonNeutral Company Voted Best Offset Retailer for Fourth Consecutive Year

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

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- The CarbonNeutral Company (www.carbonneutral.com) has been voted Best Offset Retailer for the fourth consecutive year, in a survey conducted by Environmental Finance. (www.environmental-finance.com/) 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.

Stephen Killeen, CEO of The CarbonNeutral Company, said "It is an incredible honour to be recognised as the Best Offset Retailer by our industry peers for the fourth consecutive year. Our success is a direct result of our collaboration with some of the most forward-thinking and action-oriented clients in the world and the most innovative projects. It is this combination which makes a positive impact on the environment and on the communities in the areas of the world which need it most. The strong relationships we have developed with our partners and suppliers, and the commitment of our team to excellence in the sourcing and procuring of top quality projects, enables our clients to incorporate that high level of quality into their environmental programmes and make a significant impact on climate change and people's lives."

Mr. Killeen went on to say, "We count ourselves extremely fortunate to work with two of the highest quality organisations who, like us, have been recognised for their outstanding work in making a positive environmental impact: Microsoft which has won Best Corporate Offset Programme for its innovation and commitment to a diverse, impactful and global offset programme; and TIST, a community reforestation project based in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and India, who we have worked with since 2011, which has won the new award of Best Offset Project."

The CarbonNeutral Company has contracted with more than 290 projects in 40 countries since its founding in 1997. Most recently the company has worked closely with its clients to use carbon finance to build resilience into their supply chains and commit funds to projects at their planning stage in order to create a closer alignment with their wider business objectives. Marks and Spencer, a leading UK retailer, has recently worked closely with The CarbonNeutral Company to provide carbon financing to UNICEF's new cookstoves project in Bangladesh, which will deliver not only reduced carbon emission but also significant health benefits, particularly to children.

The CarbonNeutral Company has experienced an average annual growth of 30% from 2009 to 2013 and, based on the first six months of 2014, this growth is set to continue. Zubair Zakir, Director of Sourcing for The CarbonNeutral Company, observed: "Our sourcing desk reviewed 113 million tonnes of carbon credits last year, representing a significant percentage of what was available on the voluntary market. Our success is based on combining that comprehensive project assessment and review process with a wide network of relationships that gives clients the confidence that we can create solutions that will meet their individual needs; particularly with the growing emphasis we are seeing on biodiversity protection, improving health, managing water impacts and community focused projects."
