What is PAS 2080 certification/verification?

PAS 2080 is the leading standard for carbon management solutions in buildings and infrastructure development. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as PAS 2080 certification, PAS 2080 is a verification scheme to assess compliance. The standard’s development has been supported by the building and construction industry leaders, such as Skanska, Mott MacDonald, National Grid, and Anglian Water.

The standard applies to new projects or programs of work, as well as the management or retrofit of existing assets and networks. This means that any new buildings or infrastructure projects should consider the carbon footprint throughout their entire lifecycle, from design and construction to operation and end-of-life.


Who is PAS 2080 for?

All value chain members in the built environment, including:

  • Asset owners and managers
  • Architects and designers
  • Constructors 
  • Product and material suppliers
  • Regulators and financiers

What is the difference between PAS 2080 and 2060?

PAS 2080 and 2060 are both standards for managing greenhouse gas emissions, but PAS 2080 focuses specifically on buildings and infrastructure projects in the built environment, while PAS 2060 applies to any organization. PAS 2060 also includes guidance on how to achieve carbon neutrality, while PAS 2080 does not.
