What is carbon neutrality and PAS 2060?

Carbon neutrality means not adding new greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere. Where emissions continue, they must be offset by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere, for example through carbon capture and reforestation that is supported by carbon credit schemes.  

Benefits of PAS 2060

Why does carbon neutrality matter for your business?

Governments are increasingly insisting on carbon neutrality. The UK government, for example, has set a target for all businesses to become carbon neutral – or achieve ‘net zero’ GHG emissions – by 2050. In addition, carbon neutrality is a key objective for organizations wishing to:

  • Help combat climate change
  • Enhance your sustainability credentials and increase your resilience
  • Align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs)
  • Gain a competitive edge by offering customers greener products and services
  • Improve business efficiency by cutting energy costs

Our verification to PAS 2060 – demonstrate carbon neutrality

How our BSI verification works

The PAS 2060 standard specifies a four-stage process to demonstrate carbon neutrality. This involves:

  • Assessment of GHG emissions based on accurate measurement data
  • Reduction of emissions through a target-driven carbon management plan
  • Offsetting of excess emissions, often by purchasing carbon credits
  • Documentation and verification through qualifying explanatory statements and public disclosure.


Through independent BSI verification to PAS 2060, your business can demonstrate that it has met these requirements. You can show you are serious about sustainability, responding to the challenge of climate change and contributing to the UNSDGs, while enhancing your organization’s performance and resilience.
