British Standard PAS2060 – the de facto global standard. Publicly Available Specification (PAS 2060) applies a common definition and a recognised method of validation. It is based on the assessment of the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of goods and services. This specification can be applicable to activities, products, services, buildings, projects, towns, cities and even events.
We have developed our own BP Target Neutral Carbon Neutral Protocol. It has been reviewed and assured by Climate Check and takes the best of global standards like PAS2060 and NCOS but is packaged into an easy to use format specially designed for small and medium sized business.
This protocol format employs a simple five-step pathway to acquiring carbon neutral certification. This involves quantifying your business carbon footprint, setting and meeting reduction targets, offsetting unavoidable emissions, achieving certification and finally publicising the results.
BP Carbon Neutral certification is an effective way for small and medium businesses to kick-start a long-term carbon reduction programme that helps drive efficiencies, enhances brand and customer offers, motivates staff and creates competitive advantage.
