Measure & Manage: Carbon Footprinting.

A climate strategy starts by understanding your operational emissions hotspots to help focus emission and energy reduction initiatives.

A carbon footprint will present a complete picture of your carbon emissions. This will help you monitor your emissions over time to track progress against your carbon reduction targets and help to identify emissions hot spots to focus your emission and energy reduction initiatives.

How we can help with the carbon footprinting.

Whatever you are looking for from a footprinting services, we can design a solution suitable to your needs.

Organisational footprint

This service will help you to understand the sources of carbon across your company’s full operations, including energy use by your offices, processes and business travel. This is the starting point of a carbon neutral programme.

Product footprint

We look at the carbon embedded in different stages of a product's life on a ‘cradle to gate’ or ‘cradle to grave’ basis, including the impact of the supply chain, materials, manufacture, installation and disposal of the product. Our product footprint service will help you to identify the appropriate product footprint standard to use (e.g. PAS 2050), the scope for data collection, assist in data collection and conversion to carbon equivalencies.

Portfolio footprint

Increasingly, asset owners such as pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds are acknowledging their exposure to climate change risk. By calculating the carbon emissions of investment portfolios, companies can identify and then take steps to reduce carbon risk exposure.
