Our Standard consultations
The public consultation period for the Preferred by Nature Carbon Footprint Management Standard version 2.0 is now closed.
The original CFM Standard was subject to two rounds of public consultation in 2012 and 2013. Following that, the version 2.0 was developed and underwent a public consultation from 10 February to 10 April 2021. These consultations provided insightful feedback from stakeholders, significantly strengthening the impact and usability of the standard.
The second version of the Standard aims to help organisations manage their corporate, product and event carbon footprints in a systematic way. It may be used to reduce GHG emissions, achieve carbon neutrality and enhance climate responsibility. Updates to the standard include additional clarity around emission source requirements, a carbon neutral event option, and new emissions reduction targets and labels.
