CICS Receives Re-Accreditation by UKAS to PAS 2050

CICS is pleased to announce that it has received re-accreditation to the revised version of PAS 2050 by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service)

PAS 2050:2011 is an international standard for the carbon footprinting of goods and services across the full lifecycle. It measures those emissions released as part of the processes of creating, modifying, transporting, storing, using, providing, recycling or disposing of goods and services. The 2011 revised version has taken the views of users and stakeholders into consideration and includes, for example, clearer guidance on how to treat recyclable material.

Shaun Bainbridge, Director at CICS, says:
"PAS 2050 gives you a clear framework to measure lifecycle GHG emissions and the new version is even clearer in its methodology. More and more of our clients are choosing to measure the carbon footprint of their products; as well as helping them to reduce their environmental impact, it also helps to distinguish their products from those of their competitors."
