THE JOURNEY TO CARBON NEUTRALITY
Want to go carbon neutral but don't know where to start? PAS 2060 provides a clear framework for achieving carbon neutral status. By setting measurement and reduction targets for your organisation, and by examining documentation, it allows for your carbon neutrality statement to be fully verified.
Calculate the carbon footprint for the relevant entity (e.g. company, product).
The next step in the process is to plan to reduce these identified emissions.
PAS 2060 requires that the total amount of residual carbon emissions be offset.
Document & verify
The final stage is to document, verify and declare carbon neutral status.
