Carbon Neutral Certification

Carbon Trust Certification is the world’s leading independent certification body for carbon footprints and certifies organisations and products to PAS 2060.

Carbon Trust Footprint Label - Carbon Neutral

A carbon neutral footprint is one where the sum of the greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) produced is offset by natural carbon sinks and/or carbon credits.  Carbon Trust Certification certifies organisations and products to PAS 2060 - the internationally recognised certification standard for the demonstration of carbon neutrality.

PAS 2060 requires robust measurement and a plan for achieving internal reductions and offsetting using high quality carbon credits. The Carbon Trust recognises only Gold Standard carbon credits.

Carbon Neutral footprint certification enables you to gain an internationally recognised, fully independent measurement that can be used to communicate your product’s resource efficiency, to drive sales, reduce costs and increase brand loyalty.

Sustainability leaders

Many leading brands have had their product and organisational footprints independently certified by Carbon Trust Certification, including:

Organisations certified by the Carbon Trust
Polythene bioplastic beads

Polythene UK - carbon neutral certification

Polythene UK worked with the Carbon Trust to calculate the carbon footprint of plastic bags made from biopolyethylene, showing the circular economy potential of bioplastics.

  • Differentiate yourself as an environmentally responsible brand with an internationally recognised, independent assessment

Facilitating compliance

  • Demonstrate your commitment to resource reduction in the supply chain
  • Meet procurement requirements for more sustainable products with independently-verified environmental impact data
By working with the Carbon Trust to better understand the lifecycle impacts of our biopolyethylene bags we can be confident that they are in fact carbon neutral, which helps us to provide our clients with a more sustainable product.

What is PAS 2060 Carbon Neutral?

PAS 2060 is the internationally recognised specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality and builds on the existing PAS 2050 environmental standard. It sets the requirements to be met when seeking to achieve and demonstrate carbon neutrality through the quantification, reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a uniquely identified subject or entity, be that an organisation or a product. It requires robust measurement and a plan for achieving internal reductions and offsetting using high quality carbon credits. Launched in 2010 by the British Standards Institute (BSI) PAS 2060 was developed with input from The Carbon Trust.
