choosing to accurately manage your carbon footprint
We help ensure your business has a plan, is prepared for future legislation and is taking the necessary steps on the road to net zero.
In order to take action to reduce emissions, we need to understand and measure where they’re sourced from in the first place. The three scopes are a way of categorising the different kinds of emissions a company creates in its own operations and in its wider ‘value chain’ (its suppliers and customers).
mapping emissions using the GHG protocol
the recognised international standard for corporate accounting and reporting of emissions
All direct emissions from the activities of an organisation or under their control. Including fuel combustion on site such as gas boilers, fleet vehicles and air-conditioning leaks.
Indirect emissions from electricity purchased and used by the organisation. Emissions are created during the production of the energy and eventually used by the organisation.
All other indirect emissions from activities of the organisation, occurring from sources that they do not own or control. These are usually the greatest share of the carbon footprint, covering emissions associated with business travel, procurement, waste and water.
why emissions management is critical for your business
Understanding the emissions the business is responsible for and knowing how to measure, offset and, most importantly, reduce carbon emissions will provide your business with a proactive approach to align with soon to be mandatory climate regulations. To ensure your business is fulfilling all of the standards of the government, and prepared for growth in your value chain in the future, accurate reporting to stakeholders is key.
Companies that succeed in reporting all 3 scopes of emissions also have a competitive edge in carbon neutrality.
how to best manage your emissions and reap the rewards for doing so
Managing your emissions can be done internally, we strongly suggest that the first steps on this journey can be taken as an internal, self-critical discussion. If followed correctly the GHG protocol can guide businesses to accurate first steps on the journey to net-zero. However for most companies this simply becomes a step on a much greater journey of understanding, one that becomes a partnership to maximise the analysis and results.
planning with sustainable generation technologies
We work with your company to accurately map out every element of your carbon footprint across the GHG protocol and help you to identify exactly where the greatest improvements can be made.
From here we then act as your decarbonisation partner to assist with future planning, accurate data monitoring and constant improvement on your journey to net zero.
