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 recognized 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.
