Overview

Carbon Footprint or Carbon Neutral Consultant

Carbon Footprint reporting is an integral part of any sustainability program. As a Carbon Footprint or Carbon Neutral Consultant our work includes Carbon Footprinting for organizations and Products, Low Carbon Strategy Consulting, and Communication Reporting.

Companies are increasingly faced with complex climate risks. The need to identify, address and manage these risks (climate actions) is crucial in order to uphold the social license to operate, maintain corporate reputation and achieve sustainable business growth.

We support our customers to craft comprehensive, responsible, and practical approaches to Carbon Audit, Carbon Management and Net Zero Strategy.

We identify emissions reduction opportunities and assist companies to establish realistic GHG emissions targets.

The essential elements to a successful carbon management program include conducting comprehensive evaluations, understanding your carbon goals, defining the optimum solutions, and measuring your results.

Supporting your journey towards Net Zero.

Climate denial or ignorance is not a profitable proposition.

Carbon Footprint for the Organisation

The carbon footprint of an organisation or unit is a significant measure of its impact on the environment. It represents an indirect indicator of the consumption of energy, products, and services and measures the amount of carbon footprint which corresponds to their activities. As an ESG and Carbon Footprint Consultant, we offer end to end solutions customised for your organisation.

2.

Product Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint of a product includes greenhouse gas emissions produced during a product’s life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials up to waste disposal.

3.

Development of Low Carbon Growth Strategy

Strategizing low carbon pathways for your operations (midstream, upstream and downstream), setting targets and realization plans. A data based strategy, that identifies unique company impacts, risks, and opportunities.

4.

Carbon related Reporting and Disclosure

Helping companies disclose carbon management related performance and carbon footprint demonstrating commitment to stakeholders at every level. This solution is supported by consulting to comply with national and international sustainability reporting requirements and standards like GRI, CDP, SASB, TCFD, ESG, BRSR, DJSI, and many more.

Methodology Framework

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:

COMPLETE REMOTE MODE FOOTPRINT ASSESSMENT

Through online modes of interaction, data collection and data validation

HYBRID MODE FOOTPRINT ASSESSMENT

Through a combination of online interactions and onsite visits

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.

Business Benefits

The need for Carbon Audit and Footprinting is now pivotal for businesses, emphasizing their crucial role in sustainability.

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

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
  1. 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.
