It is the world’s first specification – in effect, a standard – for whole-life carbon management in infrastructure.
It focuses on how to reduce carbon emissions from infrastructure, both when it is built and when it is used.
This whole-life approach – looking beyond the construction phase – is extremely important, because a significant amount of emissions is generated through the use of infrastructure.
PAS2080 was developed by the British Standards Institution (BSI), which worked with key stakeholders from industry and the government. The specification sets out a consistent approach to cutting emissions.
