PAS 2050 Workshops

1 February 2012 (Advanced in Manchester)

8 February 2012 (Advanced in London)

9 February 2012 (Beginners in London)

How to carbon footprint your goods and services:
PAS 2050 workshops for beginners and advanced  

Attend these complimentary events to enhance your knowledge of PAS 2050.

BSI will be hosting three one-day PAS 2050 workshops in 2012, with two workshops to be held in London and one in Manchester.

The two workshops in London will be divided into beginner and advanced with the fundamentals (beginner) workshop targeted at organizations wishing to get a footprinting program up and running internally, and the advanced at organizations further along the implementation pathway, having encountered problems attempting to footprint one or more of their products and services. An advanced workshop will be held in Manchester.

PAS 2050 Fundamentals Workshop (BEGINNER)

This workshop is aimed at organizations looking to understand what is involved in product footprinting from a practical perspective, understand the differences between the PAS 2050 and other footprinting standards/methods, get a footprinting programme started internally and implement the newly revised PAS 2050. The objective is to introduce key concepts and practical tips and discuss potential barriers and challenges alongside others in a similar position, with the support of experienced footprinting practitioners.

PAS 2050 ADVANCED Workshop

This practical workshop is aimed at organizations that have attempted to footprint one, or a number of, their goods and services and have encountered difficulties in doing so. The objective is to share experiences of these difficulties and identify solutions, alongside others in a similar position and with the support of experienced footprinting practitioners. Delegates will also have the chance to discuss the implications of the newly revised PAS 2050 and the recent publication of the GHG Protocol Product Standard.

Who should attend?

Organizations wishing to get a footprinting programme started internally and implement the newly revised PAS 2050.

About PAS 2050

PAS 2050 is a publicly available specification that provides a method for assessing the life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of goods and services (jointly referred to as “products”).

It can be used by organizations of all sizes and types, in any location, to assess the climate change impact of the products they offer.

PAS 2050:2011 is free to download and use.

Why should I use PAS 2050?

While GHG emissions are often viewed at global, national, corporate or organizational levels, emissions also come from supply chains within business, between businesses, and between nations.

Increasingly, best practice has been for organisations to consider impacts beyond their own corporate activities – extending the scope of their “carbon footprints” to include the impacts of the goods and services they produce. PAS 2050 provides a means for this.

PAS 2050 helps organisations:

  • Carry out internal assessment of the existing life cycle GHG emissions of their products to identify “hotspots” and related cost/energy saving opportunities
  • Evaluate alternative product configurations, sourcing and manufacturing methods, raw material choices and supplier selection
  • Devise ongoing programmes aimed at reducing GHG emissions
  • Reporting on corporate responsibility.

For consumers of goods and services, PAS 2050 provides a common basis for understanding the assessment of life cycle GHG emissions when making purchasing decisions and using goods and services.
