What is PAS 2060?
Being carbon neutral means achieving net zero carbon emissions, which can be achieved through reducing emissions, removing CO2 from the atmosphere and carbon offsetting. The UK government has set a target for all businesses to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
PAS 2060 is the internationally recognised specification for carbon neutrality and it sets out a four-stage process to demonstrate this:
1. Assessment of GHG emissions data
2. A target-driven plan for emissions reduction
3. Offsetting of excess emissions
4. Documentation, verification, and public disclosure on an annual basis
Our verification services
LRQA can independently verify your data, information and reports to drive credibility with the people that matter most to you – demonstrating that data is accurate, representative and benchmarkable.
What are the benefits of PAS 2060 verification?
Substantiate your carbon neutral claims
Following the four-stage process will help you to quantify your carbon footprint and reduce emissions. Independent third-party verification demonstrates that your carbon neutral claims are accurate and helps to avoid claims of greenwashing.
Meet customer requirements
Demonstrating your carbon neutral status will enable you to meet the expectations of customers, consumers and other stakeholders and differentiate your organisation as an environmental leader in your field.
Going through this process will help you to identify areas of inefficiency within your organisation and reduce energy usage, leading to performance improvement and cost savings.
