“A carbon footprint calculation provides transparency, creates opportunities and sets the basis for your discussion with stakeholders”

Reasons for requesting a carbon footprint calculation are but not limited to:

  • Opportunity to give transparency to your processes
  • Identification of the size of your carbon footprint
  • Access to new climate conscious markets
  • Complying with your supply chain requirements for carbon disclosure
  • Climate risk mitigation, for example restrain upward pressure on your insurance premium through evidence from managing your carbon footprint
  • In preparation of a carbon neutral claim
  • Planning to carbon offsetting a proportion or your full carbon footprint
  • Setting a carbon benchmark and baseline for your carbon reduction strategy and targets
  • Monitoring the impact of your carbon reduction strategy
  • Minimising environmental impact

Approach

1. To calculate your carbon footprint within your operational boundaries, data is collected in relating to:

Scope 1:                    All direct greenhouse gas emissions from fuel, gas and refrigerants
Scope 2:                   Indirect greenhouse gas emissions from consumption of purchased electricity, heat or steam
Scope 3:                   Indirect emissions from energy losses in production and transportation of scope 1-2 items to your location(s), travel and waste

Scopes
Source: The GHG Protocol

2. From the time all data is collected the carbon report is commonly completed within 5-10 days
3. Presentation of carbon report for key staff
4. Recommendations for carbon reduction strategies

Outcome

  • Calculation of emission data by scope and emission sources
  • Your emission calculated in tCO2e and translated into equivalent numbers for clear communication with stakeholder community
  • Key Indicators such as: Emission by full time employee and/or by dollar spend
  • Full written carbon report conducted to the principals of the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard and the Australian National Greenhouse Accounts Factors published by the Department of Environment
