CARBON REDUCTION ASSESSMENT

CARBON REDUCTION ASSESSMENT

There has never been a more urgent need to reduce Carbon emissions.

Carbon Calculators can tell you what your emissions are, but our Carbon Reduction Assessments tell you what you can do to reduce and offset them.

If you’re looking for guidance beyond ‘turning lights off when you’re not using them’, and if you’re committed to making a real, sustainable difference towards a Net Zero Carbon Future, then our Carbon Reduction Assessments are what your business needs. We’ve worked with businesses worldwide to help them assess their emissions and come up with a carbon reduction plan.

OUR ASSESSMENTS

Find out More About our Carbon Life Cycle Assessments

Our team of fully qualified industry leaders work with your business to go beyond crunching the numbers to provide you with clear and comprehensive detail about exactly what your Carbon Emissions are, and what you need to do to report on them against internationally recognised standards like DEFRA (Department for Environmental and Rural Affairs) and the GHG Protocol.

When we talk about a Carbon Life Cycle Assessment, we use “Carbon” to refer to all greenhouse gases. It is used as a collective term for any emission that contributes to global warming, so when we assess your business’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG’s) we can take into account all the contributing factors to your overall Carbon Emissions.

Years of Engineering Process Improvement experience has shown us you can only manage what you measure. Setting a baseline using accurate calculations that are peer-reviewed by a team of experts, followed by accurate reporting, lets us help you identify areas of emissions, quantify the size of the problem, and set solution-focused targets and processes for carbon reduction.


Most Carbon reporting divides your Carbon Emissions into 3 Scopes as established by the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency)

Scope 1

These emissions are direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by an organisation (e.g., emissions associated with fuel combustion in boilers, furnaces, vehicles).

Scope 2

These emissions are indirect GHG emissions associated with the use of electricity, steam, heat, or cooling. Although scope 2 emissions physically occur at the facility where they are generated, they are accounted for in an organisation’s GHG inventory because they are a result of the organisation’s energy use.

Scope 3

This final kind of emission includes all other indirect emissions from activities of the organisation, occurring from sources in the organisation's value chain 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. Including Upstream and Downstream emissions.

However, this simple categorisation of emissions doesn’t go beyond quantification.

For any environmentally responsible organisation it is vital that their Carbon Reduction efforts start with measurement, but then immediately move onto  undertaking the actionable next steps to deliver a reduction in carbon emissions.

Our Carbon Reduction Assessment provides you with the roadmap to do this.

OUR SOLUTIONS

Net Zero Carbon for your Business

Our carbon reduction solutions also include Carbon Offsetting, an action or activity that acts as a carbon sink, removing carbon from the atmosphere and allowing organisations to further contribute to achieving a Net Zero Carbon world, where the result of reducing carbon emissions and offsetting the remainder results in Net Zero Carbon emissions.

Our Carbon Reduction Assessment also presents you with a variety of compelling ways you can communicate your progress to your stakeholders, without unnecessary jargon.

In summary, our Carbon Reduction Assessment;

  • Measures the sum of all greenhouse gases emitted by the activities of an organisation,
  • Sets out realistic actions and goals for Carbon Reduction, including the overall resulting reduction in greenhouse gases these actions would deliver.
  • Provides clear, actionable steps to offset your existing carbon footprint.
