Now revised from its 2008 edition, PAS 2050:2011 is a publicly available specification providing a method for assessing the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of goods and services.  It can be used by organizations of all sizes and types, in any location, to assess the climate change impact of the products they offer.  Originally published in 2008 as the world’s first framework methodology for product carbon footprinting, PAS 2050 is now  parent to an expanding family of specifications, providing tailored guidance for individual sectors to enable most effective use of PAS 2050.
