AMBIENTA 2014 received the Carbon neutrality certificate for compensation of the anticipated greenhouse gases emission. In this way this international fair became a member of the circle of modern fair events around the globe, which are taking care of the environment. The largest portion of the greenhouse gases emissions has been neutralized through the project of the Bolivian Amazon forest protection and the rest is related to the landfill programmes in Brazil and the USA.

Sponsors of the emissions neutralization are the Croatian Wood Cluster and Geonatura group.
