ISO Carbon Neutrality

ISO’s 14068 Carbon Neutrality Standard ensures that carbon neutrality efforts are scientifically valid and communicated transparently

ISO’s Carbon Neutrality Standard was finalized in 2023 as part of the ISO 14060 family of standards. Building on the British Standards Institution (BSI)’s PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality standard, it focuses on quantifying, reducing, and offsetting carbon footprints, using a hierarchical approach prioritizing direct and indirect GHG emission reductions and removal enhancements within the value chain, over offsetting. It ensures that carbon neutrality efforts are true, fair, scientifically valid, and communicated transparently. The standard promotes science-based, ambitious GHG emission reduction strategies and encourages a comprehensive value chain and life cycle approach to carbon management.
