Are you Greenstalling?

Your Carbon Management Plan Questions Answered

Greenstalling: Your Guide to Standards and Methodologies 

A recent report has highlighted a concerning trend: some businesses are "Greenstalling" on advancing their carbon emissions management. The challenge is real—while many organisations calculate "their interpreted" carbon footprint, there's confusion about which standard and methodology to reference their emissions against.

What is the issue?

Currently, for SMEs, carbon reporting remains voluntary. Without a clear directive, companies are left wondering how to proceed. That's where Carbon-Zero steps in.

Our Approach at Carbon-Zero

We guide our clients with the British Standard ISO PAS 2060:2014, a benchmark for demonstrating Carbon Neutrality, which offers a clear "Standard" methodology for establishing a baseline calculation of carbon footprints. Carbon offsetting is optional, but it's part of the process for those who choose it. We offer low-cost guidance on methodology and reporting for those navigating these waters for the first time.


Verification Matters

For organisations looking for verification of their interpreted carbon assessment, we carry out verifications to PAS 2060 and BS EN ISO 14064-1:2012 – an exacting standard that involves internal and external audits and certification. Although some shy away from accreditation due to its intensity, audits etc. it's a rigorous pathway for those committed to making a difference.

Beyond Carbon: The B Corp Commitment

B Corp certification goes further, requiring a business to meet high standards of performance, accountability, and transparency in various areas, beyond carbon, including efforts to minimise greenhouse gas emissions. It's a significant commitment, but one that speaks volumes about a company's dedication to more than just carbon emissions verification.

Science-Based Targets: The Road to Net Zero by 2050

The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) provides a structured approach to setting emissions reduction targets in line with the latest climate science. It's a commitment to halve emissions and reach Net Zero by 2050 with clear steps:

  1. Commit to the Paris Agreement goals.

  2. Develop an emissions reduction target

  3. Submit the target for SBTi validation.

  4. Communicate the target to stakeholders.

  5. Disclose annual emissions and progress.
