We use the GHG protocol which is a global corporate standard for carbon footprint measurement and reporting.
The GHG protocol was created jointly by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and it categorizes emissions related to company operations into three scopes (areas).
Our following validated methodologies support us to handle Global Assignments independent of their locations:
CBAM – Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism
CBAM or carbon border adjustment mechanism is a policy that puts a price on the carbon emissions embedded in imported goods. So,companies importing goods into the EU with a carbon price will have to pay a fee for the emissions associated with the production of those goods.
The CBAM aims to reduce carbon emissions from imported goods and promote a level playing field between the EU and its trading partners.
It ensures that the carbon price of imports is equivalent to the carbon price of domestic production, and that the EU’s climate objectives are not undermined.
The CBAM is designed to be compatible with WTO-rules.
Requirement for Carbon Footprinting becomes of pivotal importance. A well-drafted low carbon growth strategy and management process help companies meet this responsibility and bring business benefits, such as:
- Investors and rating agencies are factoring companies’ Carbon Management Capabilities into sustainability ratings, investment decisions, and cost of capital. Carbon Footprinting forms the basis of the Carbon Management Process.
- Minimizing operational, legal, and reputational risk, thus provides license to operate
- Reducing costs associated with climate action issues
- Strengthening brand reputation with shareholders, investors, government, and the media
- Provides opportunities for businesses to contribute to the realization of the SDGs

Some more answers to your questions – FAQ
A carbon footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by a person, organization, event or product. A carbon footprint is measured in tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e).
A carbon footprint considers following greenhouse gases:
Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), and fluorinated gases like Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) & Nitrogen Trifluoride (NF3).
Emissions which are released directly into the air generated by activities controlled or owned by an organization:
- Emissions from boilers, furnaces, or generators burning fossil fuels at companies
- Emissions from mobile sources (e.g. motor vehicles) owned by the company
- Emissions from industrial processes
- Emissions from waste or wastewater treatment from installations run by the company
Emissions associated with the consumption of purchased energy:
- Emissions which are not generated directly at the company, but are the result of the company’s activities
- Emissions from sources that are not directly controlled by the company, but the company has a significant influence on their size
Emissions resulting from the company’s activities which are outside the company’s control or ownership:
- Emissions not classified in Scope 2
- Business travel, waste disposal, purchase and transport of material by a third party
- Broadest and least precisely defined category
The Publicly Available Standard 2050 (PAS 2050) was developed by the British Standards Institution in 2008 as the world’s first framework methodology for carbon footprinting. The updated 2011 version provides a method for assessing the life cycle of greenhouse gas emissions of goods and services. Organizations can use this standard to assess the climate change impact of the goods and services they offer.
