1 What is Carbon Neutral gold?
A Carbon Neutral certification demonstrates an organisation's commitment to the decarbonisation of its product portfolio, through measuring its product's footprints, adopting a carbon management plan and compensating the remaining impact through the support of environmental projects.
The Carbon Neutral label indicates that the CO2 emissions generated across the product’s entire value chain have been measured in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 14067 standard, independently verified, and committed to be reduced year after year. The outstanding emissions are then compensated across the financing of high impact environmental projects called carbon offsets.
MKS PAMP has adopted a carbon management plan to reduce its yearly carbon emissions for the Carbon Neutral gold bars by 2030. This will be achieved through significant engagement with suppliers on our carbon management plans to encourage a reduction in their GHG emissions impact. Through its alignment with the International PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality Standard, this new portfolio of products represents a tangible step in MKS PAMP’s carbon reduction journey.
