Today, there is no independent Standard describing how businesses or products can become climate positive. However, ISO 14021: 2017 includes a definition of carbon neutrality and there is the British PAS 2060: 2014 for carbon neutrality. To be climate positive a product or organisation should first become climate neutral and then offset for more than the total greenhouse gas emissions throughout the value chain.
At ZeroMission, we specialize in natural climate solutions for carbon offsetting, such as tree-planting and forest conservation certified by Plan Vivo.
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.
Purchase carbon offsets for the total emissions plus an additional volume.
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.
