Determine Your Carbon Footprint
Changing climate poses risks and opportunities for your business. Your carbon emissions reduction strategy should take both of these into account. Establishing your current carbon footprint is essential for identifying carbon emission reduction strategies.
We can help in one of two ways – either by conducting a third-party assessment to calculate your footprint, or by verifying the footprint you have already generated. Either ISO14064-1 or the GHG Corporate Protocol footprinting methodologies should be used. SCS will assess your products and services using PAS 2050 life-cycle assessment. In addition, as a complementary service, SCS is uniquely positioned to help you gain an more comprehensive understanding of your carbon footprint using advanced protocols now being standardized under the American National Standards Institute process (LEO-SCS-002). Either way, all Scope 1 and 2 emissions, plus all Scope 3 emissions that contribute more than 1% of the total footprint, are included.
Establish and Implement Your Carbon Management Plan
Our experts can help you evaluate your risks and opportunities in order to develop a successful Carbon Management Plan. This plan will include:
- Emission reduction targets
- A timeframe for implementation
- A description of the methods by which reductions will be achieved, including purchase of offset credits
To comply with PAS 2060, you must ultimately demonstrate that any remaining carbon emissions are offset by credits obtained through an approved scheme, such as the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). These credits must be third-party verified, genuinely additional, and retired after no more than one year to a recognized registry.
Carbon Neutrality Reporting
PAS 2060 requires that all information be reported in conformance with BS EN ISO/IEC 17050-1 standards, and that all documentation be available to the public. Let us assist you in gathering and preparing your disclosure to meet the transparency requirements of the standard and satisfy the information needs of your customers.
