The History of The Change Climate Project

The Change Climate Project (TCCP) was originally launched as the nonprofit Climate Neutral. The organization's work was inspired by the direct experience of our two founding organizations,  Peak Design and BioLite, which have been carbon neutral since 2018 and 2012, and are united by a common belief that being accountable for carbon is the new normal for responsible business.

Peter Dering and Jonathan Cedar, the CEOs of Peak Design and BioLite, wondered why more businesses weren't calculating and taking responsibility for their carbon emissions. They explored the barriers to adoption and uncovered a simple profound insight: somewhere along the way, the carbon conversation got really complicated – and it fundamentally doesn’t have to be.

Peter proposed consumers should be able to identify carbon neutral products as easily as certified organic products, and Jonathan quickly agreed with the analogy. The idea inspired Austin Whitman to leave a job in climate tech and policy and come on board as co-founder and CEO. Together with a massive effort from many on the BioLite and Peak Design teams, Climate Neutral was launched in June 2019.

The organization has grown and flourished and we now touch hundreds of companies and millions of consumers each year. Addressing the planet’s need for urgent climate action, our work sparks high impact corporate climate initiatives. Our tools and process make it easy for companies to get on the path to net-zero, while our label helps consumers quickly identify those brands who have done so.

In October 2023 we took on a new name: The Change Climate Project. With it, we continue to pursue the high-impact work of mobilizing millions of companies, consumers, volunteers, partners, to take leadership and seek opportunity within the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced.

Whether you're a company or a funder or individual: please join us.
