The Paris Agreement envisages the need to build a global economy with zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to achieve so-called ‘climate neutrality’. In fact, greenhouse gas emissions will have to be equal to or lower than the emissions removed through absorption/substitution and requisition.
Organisations that want to stand out as leaders must contribute to this global goal by reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, and those of their value chain, to zero as quickly as possible.
Climate neutrality is applicable to organisations, public administrations, products, services, processes, buildings and events, through the following process:
Pending the release of the ISO standard on climate neutrality (ISO 14068) we can refer to the PAS 2060 - Specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality standard developed by BSI.
