Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard for Organisations

Department of the Environment and Energy, 2019

About the Standard

The Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard for Organisations (Organisation Standard) is a voluntary standard to manage greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality. It provides best-practice guidance on how to measure, reduce, offset, validate and report emissions that occur as a result of the operations of an organisation.

The Organisation Standard has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of organisations with operations in Australia. From large-scale organisations with thousands of employees to local businesses, the Organisation Standard can be used to achieve carbon neutrality and showcase climate leadership.

The Organisation Standard can be used in a number of ways. It can be used to better understand and manage carbon emissions, to credibly claim carbon neutrality and to seek carbon neutral certification.
