To become carbon neutral, the first step is to calculate the greenhouse gas emissions arising from your business or product according to relevant standards. To fullfil a standard for carbon neutrality (ISO 14021 or PAS 2060) all emissions throughout the life cycle and value chain must be included. Another requirement is that a serious strategy to reduce emissions must be in place. When calculations, review and verification are completed, the required volume of carbon offsets is purchased.
Measure all greenhouse gas emissions in carbon dioxide equivalents - Scope 1, 2 and all categories in scope 3
Document all data and sources and verify the calculations against a standard
Take steps to reduce
Offset 100% of all emissions
In order to reach the 1.5-degree global warming target we need to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester CO2 that is already in the atmosphere.
