Carbon Neutrality

Carbon neutrality

Businesses are making huge efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, by first reducing and then balancing out greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with natural carbon sinks or credits. Certification by Bureau Veritas allows companies to prove claims of carbon neutrality and support for decarbonization.

Decarbonization is a key watchword for organizations. Many companies have set themselves ambitious targets, ranging from carbon neutral to net zero. However, many initiatives to reduce GHG emissions have failed to meet these goals, and public scrutiny is growing.  As a result, companies can no longer simply claim to be reducing their emissions and achieving carbon neutrality – they must prove it.

To verify their environmental commitment, companies must show stakeholders, institutions and partners that their activities meet internationally recognized carbon-neutral standards. Bureau Veritas is a long-term industry player providing third-party verification and certification against standards that lay out requirements for quantifying carbon footprints, enabling companies to identify and implement improvements.
