As a Hot Issue for Carbon Tax, Applus+ Laboratories bring you to learn PAS 2060 Certification


    At the end of 2023, the European Union Parliament released an announcement that, according to the EU carbon border adjustment mechanism, carbon tariffs will be formally levied on relevant products imported into the EU from 2026, triggering a hot discussion.

    PAS 2060, as the first global standard for carbon neutrality declarations, has also become more and more relevant for enterprises these days, along with the carbon tax.

    What is a carbon tax and what can PAS 2060 certification do?

    Carbon tax is an economic tool. In the short term, it increases the production cost of enterprises and reduces the competitiveness of products in the market by taxing carbon emission behaviour. However, in the long term, it can incentivise enterprises to reduce carbon emissions by taxing carbon emission behaviour, establishing a sound carbon emission accounting system, making for a greener, more efficient, and sustainable development mode. Then the enterprises can cope with the diversification challenges better. This also highlights the importance of PAS 2060 certification.

    The PAS 2060 certification standard, as a recognized standard for carbon neutral declarations, is applicable to organisations of different industries and sizes. It can be used to certify whether an entire organisation is committed to or has achieved carbon neutrality, or whether any uniquely identified object is carbon neutral, such as a specific activity, product, service, building, project or event.

    The core of PAS 2060 certification is the accurate and verifiable assessment of a company's or project's greenhouse gas emissions and to manage it properly. It is a process that covers the collection, processing, monitoring and reporting of emissions data to ensure that a company's carbon emissions data can be more transparent and reliable.

    The PAS 2060 certification is in line with carbon tax, allowing enterprises to pay more attention to environmental responsibility while pursuing economic benefits. Enterprises obtaining PAS 2060 certification not only means that their carbon emission data have been internationally recognised, but also represents that they have achieved remarkable results in the field of environmental protection, which helps to enhance their social image and competitiveness.
