What is PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality?

The PAS 2060 standard was initially launched by the British Standards Institution in 2010 with the objective of increasing transparency of carbon neutrality by providing a common definition and recognised method for achieving carbon-neutral status.

As a result of the Virtual Climate Summit on December 12th 2020, the UK are now committed to reducing emissions by 68% by 2030. All businesses will be held more accountable for their carbon footprint going forward and we all need to do our part to help slow the growing climate crisis, this can be done by obtaining a PAS 2060 verification

With the rise of carbon emissions and pollution, obtaining a carbon-neutral certification will benefit both your organization and the planet by reducing the negative impacts of climate change. Organizations that have become PAS 2060 verified with Carbonology in the past have reduced carbon footprints, improved energy efficiency and reduced energy bills and emissions.

The PAS 2060 standards specify the requirements to be met by any organisation seeking to demonstrate carbon neutrality through the quantification, reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The standard sets measurement and reduction targets for your organisation. Through the examination of documents and plans, it then allows for your specific carbon neutrality statement to be fully verified.

Benefits of PAS 2060 include

  • Meet customer, stakeholder, industry and legal and statutory expectations
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and quantify your carbon footprint
  • Identify areas of inefficiency and where to improve overall performance
  • Make cost savings by reducing energy consumption and bills
  • Gain credibility with a consistent carbon neutrality statement
