Carbon Trust Standard Advisory Board
The Carbon Trust Standard methodology is based on existing international carbon measurement standards and extensive research with businesses, public sector organisations and stakeholders.
The Standard is subject to annual review and takes into account feedback from applicants, certified organisations, our assessors, external stakeholders and others.
An external Advisory Board provides independent advice on technical issues and informs the development of the Standard.

- The carbon footprint measurement requirements.
