CO2 Neutrality according to BSI: PAS 2060
The PAS 2060 is the new standard for carbon neutrality launched in 2010 by the British Standards Institution (BSI). Because the term ‘carbon neutrality’ did not have a valid and clear definition, a transparent standard was needed. The standard offers a successful set of measures and requirements to prove one’s carbon neutrality. Everyone who follows the PAS 2060 guidelines can be sure of having a verifiable and transparent declaration of carbon neutrality. Using this standardwill make it easier to compare different company efforts with each other, and public cynicism about the term will be overcome.
One of the four key principles of the PAS 2060 is the use of existing and credible public standards. More specifically, this means that the calculation of the CO2 footprint and the offsetting of emissions should be done using appropriate standards. The sections CO2 footprinting standards and CO2 offsetting standards give an overview of the existing corresponding standards.
