Carbon Trust Standard
The Carbon Trust Standard is the world’s leading independent certification of an organisation’s impact in respect of the three primary constituents of environmental sustainability:
- Energy usage and greenhouse gas (CO2e) emissions
- Water usage, management and effluent
- Waste management and disposal
Awarded to recognise best-practice and real achievements in reduction, the Carbon Trust Standard helps organisations to Measure, Manage and Reduce their environmental impact, whilst improving their resource management and operational sustainability.
The certification process acts to identify inefficiencies in resource use and provides a framework for improving management processes, reducing waste and costs.
Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard provides independent and internationally recognised verification of your achievements in reducing resource use and waste and offers tangible proof to customers, employees, shareholders and suppliers that you are committed to sustainability
Standard Bearers include a wide range of organisations, all proud to bear the Carbon Trust Standard logo and with over 1,100 organisations having certified, they have helping create a new business culture whereby corporate sustainability is now an essential part of business management.
