What is PAS 2060
PAS 2060 is a specification for demonstrating carbon neutrality produced and published by the British Standards Institution (BSI). It defines a consistent set of measures and requirements for entities to show that they have achieved net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for a specific subject, such as a product, service, organisation, event or building.
To comply with PAS 2060, an entity must follow a four-stage process:
Assessment of GHG emissions based on accurate measurement data.
Reduction of emissions through a target-driven carbon management plan.
Offsetting excess emissions, often by purchasing carbon credits from approved schemes.
Documentation and verification through qualifying explanatory statements and public disclosure.
PAS 2060 verification can help an entity demonstrate its commitment to sustainability, combat climate change, enhance its reputation, improve efficiency, and align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
