NCOS – Australia’s World Leading Carbon Offset Standard
The National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) is a voluntary standard to manage greenhouse gas emissions and to achieve carbon neutrality. It provides best-practice guidance on how to measure, reduce, offset, report and audit emissions for organisations, products & services, events, precincts and buildings.
The NCOS can be used in a number of ways. Organisations can use the standard to better understand and manage their carbon emissions, to credibly claim carbon neutrality and to seek carbon neutral certification.
The National Carbon Offset Standard for Products & Services provides best-practice guidance on how to measure, reduce, offset, report and audit emissions that occur as a result of:
- an organisation
- a product or service being created, used and disposed
- a result of an event’s activities
- a precinct
- a building
