Organisations are awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for measuring, managing and genuinely reducing their carbon emissions and committing to reducing them year on year.

The Carbon Trust Standard was developed by the Carbon Trust in 2007/08 to encourage good practice in carbon measurement, management and reduction by businesses and public sector organisations.

It is designed to provide a robust, objective and consistent methodology for assessing corporate carbon performance. The Standard specifies requirements in 3 key areas:

* Carbon footprint measurement
* Carbon management
* Carbon reduction performance

Assessment against the Standard is undertaken by independent third-party assessors. The assessment process is managed by the Carbon Trust Standard Company - a subsidiary of the Carbon Trust.
