What is PAS 2080?

PAS 2080 is a global standard for managing carbon within the built environment. It provides a common framework across the infrastructure value chain and applies to new projects or programs of work and also to the management or retrofit of existing infrastructure assets.

Targeted at leaders, asset managers, designers, product suppliers and constructors, who are responsible for delivering infrastructure, PAS 2080 promotes best practice in carbon reduction, as well as supporting collaborative working, supply chain innovation and reduced project costs.

PAS 2080 was revised in 2023 to provide a more integrated approach to the built environment. The revised standard takes a whole life view and applies a systems-thinking approach to support the transition to net zero.
