The UK government has set a legally-binding target to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and, as a result, big changes are on the horizon for businesses. Proactive businesses are working to assess and reduce carbon emissions, ensuring their activities contribute positively to the global 'race to zero'. Acting now gives your business a head start, stealing a march on competitors before government policies force change, mitigating risks and benefiting from positive publicity.
Under the GHG Protocol, a company's carbon emissions are categorised in three scopes:-
Scope 1. Direct emissions from the company-owned and controlled resources and activities.
Scope 2. Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy purchased and used by the organisation.
Scope 3. Other indirect emissions from the organisation's value chain from sources that they do not own control, including upstream and downstream emissions that are linked to the company's operations.
We are experienced with assessing corporate and process carbon emissions, measuring and reporting in line with PAS2060, ISO14064 and the GHG Protocol. In addition to a 'materiality assessment', we can also help establish data collection procedures for ease of ongoing monitoring and present to you options for carbon reduction targets. We also provide advice and support with carbon removals and offsetting, helping you achieve net zero.
