MEASURE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Step 1

Understanding how much carbon you produce is the first step in lowering your organisation’s emissions.

When we measure your carbon footprint, we're not just thinking about your emissions. We're thinking about your broader business strategy and objectives. And we’re flexible.

 

We can measure your carbon footprint, then support you to develop an emissions reduction plan and help you deliver it, or we can show you how to measure your own emissions and provide a peer review.

Step 1

Your carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas your business generates in a year. And with more and more businesses wanting to do the right thing by the planet, measuring your carbon footprint is the best place to start.

Step 2

mEET THE EXPECTATIONS OF YOUR STAKEHOLDERS

Your clients, staff and stakeholders have an increasing expectation that you are taking climate change seriously and are taking action to reduce your carbon emissions.

 

Be proactive and measure your footprint before you miss out on a contract, tender or before a potential employee chooses to work elsewhere.
