With the effects of climate change becoming ever more apparent, companies are under pressure to understand and control carbon emissions and reduce their negative environmental impacts. Business Sustain can help by measuring your carbon footprint and identify any environmental 'hotspots'.
What is carbon footprinting?
Carbon footprinting is the process of measuring, calculating and reporting the greenhouse gases (GHGs) produced with any activity or service. Carbon dioxide is the most common of the GHGs that contribute to changes in our climate. The carbon footprint is a measurement of all greenhouse gases produced by an organisation and is measured in tonnes (or kg) of carbon dioxide equivalent.
Assessing a carbon footprint can identify opportunities and priorities for business to significantly improve productive efficiency, energy efficiency and waste minimisation, thereby saving costs. It may be required for a variety of reasons including complying with legislation such as those companies in the EU (Carbon) Emissions Trading Scheme and complying with customer or investor requests. It also gives a measure of business sustainability as part of corporate responsibility and can be used to set reduction targets.
