ZeroCarbonTarget application is regulated by a specification and a regulation for brand use. The path includes 3 TARGETs which correspond to a certain level of CARBON REDUCTION and they are recognized by a maximum of three leaves, a valley of verification by a certifying agency.
Achievement of the basic level or at least 20% of CROL (Carbon Reduction+Offset Level) compared to the baseline
Achievement of the basic level or at least 50% of CROL (Carbon Reduction+Offset Level) compared to the baseline
A clear path regulated by a specification, with set targets certifiable by an authorized third party that allows you to communicate that you have started a path without necessarily having reached the end and to do so in a clear and transparent way.
The path must include carbon reduction project trought energy efficiency, self-production, environmental interventions and not only OFFSET, in order to allow the customer to achieve concrete objectives and to stay safe from “greenwashing “.
Mobile baseline, i.e. to be fixed together with the customer on the basis of pre-established rules but in such a way as not to lose any interventions already carried out in the years immediately preceding the start up of the path.
Strict regulatory application: Carbon footprint ISO 14067, GHG inventory ISO 14064-1 and EPD (Enviromental Product Declaration): EPD standard developed in application to ISO 14025
Offset constraints in achieving the targets, so that the company does not limit itself to compensate but implements real interventions to reduce the impacts.
Intermediate targets to allow you to immediately communicate externally and not necessarily once you have reached the end but therefore from the achievement of the first objective and these objectives must be verified annually.
Leaves Labels in order to communicate the results achieved and obtaining them must necessarily pass through an authorized third party certification.
For more information read the certification specification.
ZeroCarbonTarget is a path that can be applied independently by the Organizations but in most cases it needs a high-level professional support, for this reason consulting companies have been enabled to assist the Customer for the complete application of ZCT, visit the section to discover the authorized companies.
