Carbon Neutrality

What is PAS2060 Verification?

PAS 2060 is an internationally recognised standard designed to verify the accuracy of carbon neutrality claims. The framework within PAS2060, if implemented, will help organisations achieve carbon neutrality through an ongoing process of continual improvement.

The benefits of implementation / verification are;

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Enhance organisation brand / image within the market place
  • Improve resource efficiency and reduce costs

New Paradigm Consulting specialises in streamlining management systems and here is a tip for you to reduce some of the administration associated with meeting the requirements of PAS2060.

The framework within ISO 14001 : 2015 provides a great starting point for your PAS2060 verification journey. It is unlikely that you are calculating Scope 1 – 3 emissions, however, the tools that you use to collect and analyse energy consumption / fuel usage for example, only need to be developed on to help you on your journey. So do not create a brand new PAS2060 specific management system to achieve verification to this standard, simply build on your existing Environmental Management System.

Within ISO14001 (Section 6.2), there is a requirement to establish Environmental Objectives, we typically recommend that these are ‘SMART’ in nature. With some further detail added to these SMART objectives, you can use the documentation within your Environmental Management System to document your carbon neutrality objectives.

Please contact New Paradigm Consulting and we can discuss other opportunities for helping you achieve Carbon Neutrality status without re-inventing the wheel.

Please contact us if you wish to implement a management system compliant with PAS2060 within your organisation.
