An organisational carbon footprint is the starting point in becoming a climate neutral business. Presented as a simple report, it provides a clear overview of the greenhouse gas emissions caused by a company’s operations – from energy use to business travel – as well as a better understanding of your carbon tax exposure. Once the data is captured and compared, it is very useful for reporting purposes, saving costs, and tracking progress towards emissions reduction targets.
How do we work?
A carbon footprint is only as good as the data that is used. Starting with a carbon inventory tool, our team of experts will assist with the process of data collection, as well as advising on the appropriate scope (i.e. what data sources should be included). Once the necessary data is gathered, we apply up-to-date and country-specific conversion or emission factors in order to establish the carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), the standard unit for measuring carbon footprints. (Essentially, the impacts of different greenhouse gases – other than carbon dioxide – are expressed in terms of the amount of CO2 that would create the same amount of atmospheric warming.)
What can you do with the results?
A carbon footprint presents a clear snapshot of an organisation’s emissions and their respective sources across the company. Once completed for the first time, a carbon footprint becomes the baseline against which progress can be measured. By calculating a carbon footprint on a regular basis (normally annually), it is possible to monitor emissions over time to track progress against emissions reduction targets.
Using this information, the Carbon Neutral Group is able to suggest ways to reduce and offset your organisations emissions.
