The CarbonNeutral Protocol Index

3.1 Approved emission reduction strategies and/or targets

Purpose

This section specifies which internal abatement strategies and/or targets must be in place for entities with annual footprints over 100,000 tCO2e (as defined by the CarbonNeutral company certification)

In order to receive a CarbonNeutral® certification (including entity, product or activity certifications), clients with annual footprints over 100,000 tCO2e must have set one of the approved emission reduction strategies and/or targets set out in Table 15. This applies even if the subject of the certification is less than 100,000 tCO2e. These strategies and/or targets must be specified in the client’s CarbonNeutral® Certification Target and Reduce Form (see Technical Specification 3.2).

This Technical Specification is reviewed annually to ensure it reflects developments in best practice and the performance of internal abatement initiatives.
