What is PAS 2060?

PAS 2060 is the internationally recognized standard for carbon neutrality, developed and published by the British Standards Institution (BSI). It builds on environmental standards ISO 14001 and PAS 2050, setting out the requirements for measuring, reducing and offsetting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for organisations, products and events.

How to get PAS 2060 certified?

In order to be certified, the organization needs robustly measure their carbon emissions and set reduction targets. There are 3 key steps:


Calculate the carbon footprint using the GHG Corporate Protocol


Reduce these emissions by implementing a Carbon Management Plan that contains a public commitment to carbon neutrality


PAS 2060 mandates that the total amount of residual carbon emissions must be offset by high quality certified carbon credits
