What does product carbon footprint certification mean for the Kia EV6?

The Carbon Trust is an independent, expert partner of leading organizations around the world. This achievement indicates that the Kia EV6’s product footprint has been certified against the internationally recognized PAS2050 Standard as part of the Carbon Trust’s product assessment. This standard covers emissions from the extraction of raw materials through to the end-of-life of the product and is measured in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e).

“Our mission is to accelerate the move to a sustainable, low carbon future – today, that means leaders setting net zero pathways and everyone taking steps to reduce their environmental impact.”

(Tom Delay, Chief Executive of the Carbon Trust)
