Carbon Management

Our team of qualified carbon experts have worked on numerous client projects across a variety of sectors

Carbon measurement, reporting and reduction is fast becoming a key strategic priority for many organisations. Carbon reporting is mandatory in the UK for certain businesses and there are several policy drivers in place. But under pressure to improve environmental sustainability from corporate social responsibility (CSR), supply chains and consumers many businesses and organisations are now taking action voluntarily, and others have sustainability ambitions that go beyond minimum legal requirements.

What is Carbon Management?

 

Taking action on carbon management in your business or organisation focusses on the measurement, management and mitigation of the six greenhouse gases (GHGs) covered by the Kyoto Protocol.

Typical activities involved in carbon management for your business include:

  • collating data on activities (upstream and downstream) that cause carbon emissions within your organisation and its supply chain
  • establishing the overall carbon footprint of your business and/or the carbon footprint(s) of your main products and processes
  • benchmarking your product’s carbon footprint against your competitors or against more sustainable options you could move to
  • data inventory analysis to identify the maximum carbon reduction opportunities
  • setting science based targets and developing detailed plans to drive reductions in carbon emissions in your business to net zero
  • raising employee and stakeholder awareness of your commitment to net zero carbon
  • tracking progress against targets and making continuous improvements
  • investing in carbon removal projects to cover emissions that are unavoidable
