Carbon Neutrality Training (PAS 2060)

To show their commitment to protecting the environment, companies often claim to be carbon neutral, or that their emissions do not contribute to a net increase in global emission levels. PAS 2060 is an internationally recognised standard designed to verify the accuracy of these claims and help companies achieve true carbon neutrality through earnest means.

No matter what sector you operate in, your organisation can use the PAS 2060 standard to strengthen relationships with customers and contribute to the long-term stability of life on Earth.

Use a PAS 2060 training course to demonstrate your commitment to managing and reducing your environmental impact in a world that is looking to a greener and more sustainable future.

Our carbon neutrality courses are designed to help you:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change

  • Build better environmental policies

  • Invest in meaningful carbon offsets

  • Increase environmental transparency

  • Establish a responsible brand image

  • Strengthen customer loyalty

  • Boost resource efficiency and lower spending

  • Meet the supplier requirements of sustainable brands

  • Comply with current and future environmental regulations

Booking your place on one of our PAS 2060 Training courses is the first step towards achieving and maintaining verification for your organisation’s sustainability strategy.

NQA is also a proud CQI and IRCA Approved Training Partner, and you can find many CQI and IRCA certified courses within our portfolio. 

Why Choose PAS 2060 Training?

The UK government has set a target for all businesses to become carbon neutral or achieve ‘net zero’ GHG emissions by 2050. This means that if you aren't doing so already, you will soon want to consider what actions your organisation needs to take in order to become more sustainable and meet the requirements.

To minimise the effects of climate change, countries need to significantly reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and their total greenhouse gas emissions. A large portion of which comes from commercial and industrial activities, therefore businesses must bear the responsibility for minimising emissions and overall environmental protection.

PAS 2060 applies to a wide variety of industries and business models. This means you can implement the standard and reap the benefits whether you manufacture a product, operate a building or transportation system, provide a service, run an event or conduct another type of business.

PAS 2060 verification training might be right for you if:

  • You're looking to support your environmental claims with impartial verification and evidence

  • You want to reduce your emissions and improve your environmental record to remain competitive

  • You want to meet customer demand for more environmentally-friendly products and services

  • You hope to serve as a supplier for more environmentally-conscious businesses

  • Your claims of carbon neutrality have been met with skepticism in the past

Our PAS 2060 training, delivered by expert tutors, will help you to understand what the sustainability standard is, how to implement and maintain it, and its requirements through practical and hands-on knowledge sharing and industry leading tools.

Different Ways to Learn

NQA offer e-Learning, virtual, public and in-house training options to suit all learning styles and needs.
