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, subsequent to the control of a qualified authority.
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 in the field of energy saving, without necessarily having reached the end and to do so in a simple and transparent way.
The path must include carbon reduction project through energy efficiency, self-production, environmental interventions and not only OFFSETs, in order to allow the customer to achieve concrete objectives and to stay safe from “greenwashing “.
Mobile baseline, to be fixed together with the customer, according to pre-established rules 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
Obligation to carry out energy-environmental efficiency interventions, not only offsets.
Intermediate targets that allow to immediately communicate the results, without having to wait for the end of the path. These targets must be verified annually.
Leaves Labels to communicate the results achieved. In order to get them, it is necessary to obtain a certification through verification by an authorized third party.
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, many consulting companies have been enabled to assist the Customer for the complete application of ZCT.
