Net Zero planning starts by understanding your impact on the planet, agreeing the boundaries of your climate ambitions and devising a robust and informed strategy for action.
It is important from the outset of any climate initiative to calculate your total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is essentially the baseline against which you will track your future progress to Net Zero and beyond.
At EcoAct we can provide support with carbon footprint calculation, including the more challenging tasks of calculating Scope 3/supply chain emissions or even the emissions of an investment portfolio.
We also offer a footprint validation service so you can gain independent assurance for your existing carbon footprint and be sure that you have a credible figure to communicate with your stakeholders and a firm start point for your Net Zero plan.
Other crucial elements to consider are governance, stakeholder engagement and benchmarking so that you can be clear on the priorities for your organisation and the expectations upon it, and that there will be clear ownership and oversight to ensure you reach your climate goals.
