Any business can claim to be carbon neutral, but not all claims are equal, nor do they represent a genuine commitment to environmental protection. PAS 2060 has been designed to allow business to make credible claims around carbon neutrality, and to demonstrate they have taken a structured and transparent approach to doing so.
The standard requires businesses to use a credible quantification methodology (i.e. ISO 14064!), demonstrate emission reductions, and to only purchase the highest quality offset credits.
These offsets must meet a certain criterion to be deemed eligible. Offsetting must also be accompanied by a Carbon Reduction Plan to demonstrate you are actively managing your emissions to achieve reductions.
Once a declaration of achievement in accordance with the requirements of the standard have been issued, internal and external communication of success can begin which can be a tool to strengthen relationships with stakeholders.
Demonstrate to stakeholders that you have achieved carbon neutrality in a credible and open way
Emission calculations completed in alignment with ISO 14064
Guidance to ensure you achieve carbon neutrality with only the highest quality offset project(s) and avoid inadvertent greenwashing
Demonstrate your commitment to carbon neutrality in alignment with the world’s leading carbon neutrality standard.
This involves quantifying emissions in line with ISO 14064-1. All details
of your carbon neutrality are contained within a Qualifying Explanatory Statement (QES) which will also act as your integrated ISO 14064-1 GHG Report to reduce the number of documents to manage.
As with an ISO 14064-1 project, we will also provide you with a bespoke Emissions Monitoring System to simplify your carbon reporting for up to 10 years if desired.
As well as details on your emission quantification, the QES will transparently outline how you have achieved carbon neutrality via offsetting, and how you plan to reduce emissions over time. It is our role here to guide you towards credible schemes that meet the requirements of PAS 2060
A PAS 2060 project will cover Steps 1- 7 of our Carbonology® methodology; define, quantify, commit, reduce, re-quantify (2nd reporting period), offset and declare.
