PAS 2060 Carbon neutrality
To minimise the effects of climate change, countries and companies need to significantly reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and their total greenhouse gases released during companies’ production process. A large portion of which comes from commercial and industrial activities, therefore businesses must bear the responsibility for minimising the emissions and for ensuring overall environmental protection.
The only recognised international standard for carbon neutrality is PAS 2060 which offers the business partners a methodical approach of reducing gas emissions.
Regardless of industry you operate in, your organization can use the PAS 2060 standard to strengthen customer relationships and to promote sustainability. This is increasingly crucial as the companies and governments are moving towards a net-zero world by 2050. And your company can be part of it!

What is PAS 2060?
PAS 2060 is the internationally recognized specification for carbon neutrality developed and published by the British Standards Institution (BSI). The document builds on the environmental standards such as ISO 14001 and PAS 2050. It sets out requirements for quantification, reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for organisations, products and events.
How to get PAS 2060 certified?
In order to be certified, the organization needs to set measurement and reduction targets for company as basis. The standard is composed of 4 key stages:
Calculate the carbon footprint of the product. Recommended calculation methodologies are ISO 14064-1 or GHG Corporate Protocol.
Reduce these emissions by developing a Carbon Footprint Management Plan that contains a public commitment to carbon neutrality.
PAS 2060 requires that the total amount of residual carbon emissions be offset by high quality certified carbon credits.
