First published in 2010, PAS 2060 is an internationally applicable specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality. It specifies the requirements to be met to demonstrate carbon neutrality through the quantification, reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Verification to this standard will demonstrate you companies’ commitment to fighting climate change and provide clear evidence that your business is carbon neutral.

Carbon neutrality is the state of being carbon neutral, it is when, during a specified period, there has been no net increase in the global emission of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere as a result of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the subject during the same period – ultimately you do not emit any more greenhouse gases than you remove from the atmosphere.

Acquiring a certification, like  PAS 2060, requires companies to quantify their carbon footprint, reduce their emissions and identify how they can offset residual emissions. The PAS 2060 standard can provide your company with the necessary, annual incentive and accountability that can be critical to keep the momentum towards reducing emissions going.
