The Role of PAS2060


As CEO of the International Manufacturers Association of Sustainability (IMAS), I am committed to guiding our industry toward greener practices. Part of my role is to clarify the landscape of international standards and certifications that can significantly impact operations and environmental footprint.

One of the standards we look for, is PAS 2060, a crucial standard for achieving carbon neutrality, and compare it with other popular certifications we like to see such as EcoVadis and ISO 14001.

Why PAS 2060 Matters for Your Business

PAS 2060 isn't just another standard; it's a definitive path to demonstrating your commitment to carbon neutrality. By adopting PAS 2060, you can:

  • Strengthen Your Market Position: Show customers and partners that you are serious about sustainable practices.

  • Drive Operational Efficiency: Reduce energy use and waste, leading to cost savings.

  • Enhance Compliance: Stay ahead in markets where regulations on emissions are tightening.

How PAS 2060 Compares to
EcoVadis and ISO 14001:

  • EcoVadis: While EcoVadis evaluates broader corporate social responsibility (CSR), including labor and ethics, it doesn't focus specifically on carbon emissions like PAS2060.

  • ISO 14001: This standard helps develop an overall environmental management system (EMS) but does not specifically target carbon neutrality like PAS 2060 does.

Implementing PAS 2060:

To integrate PAS 2060 into your operations, follow these streamlined steps:

  1. Assess Your Emissions: Understand your baseline carbon footprint.

  2. Implement Reductions: Strategically reduce your emissions through innovative practices.

  3. Offset What Remains: Purchase carbon credits to balance your account.

  4. Verify and Declare: Obtain third-party verification to credibly claim your carbon-neutral status.

If you are interested in learning more, you can speak to us for guidance or access PAS 2060 through official bodies like the British Standards Institution (BSI). Consider training sessions to fully understand and implement the standards effectively.Embracing PAS 2060 can transform how your business is seen in the global marketplace and open up opportunities to eco-conscious buyers which we can introduce you to at IMAS (U.K) Limited. It's not just about compliance; it's about leading the charge in sustainable manufacturing.
