Carbon footprinting measures the greenhouse gas emissions caused by an organization, event or product
More and more companies are undertaking carbon management strategies, and corporate or product carbon footprints are a common first step. Carbon footprinting can be pursued for different purposes, fulfill different needs, and be characterized by very different levels of effort and financial costs. The challenge facing companies is to generate quality footprints that meet today’s needs as cost-effectively as possible, while anticipating future needs for footprinting information.
Carbon footprinting is a recognized best practice for companies seeking to track their carbon output in an effort to reduce it. Accurate monitoring and reporting shows companies where changes can be made and impact minimized, helping them achieve net zero targets.
Both voluntary standards and protocols and mandatory reporting regimes exist to which businesses can assess and report their carbon footprint thoroughly and transparently. Using holistic, structured methodologies consistent with standards of lifecycle assessment, they give organizations the information and guidance they need to reduce emissions.
You benefit from the following advantages:
- Increased ecologic integrity of your Carbon Footprint by complying with recognized standards.
- Improved credibility, consistency und transparency of the quantification, monitoring and reporting of your GHG.
- Creating a reliable basis for developing and improving monitoring systems for tracking GHG-emissions.
- Enabling the development and implementation of emission reduction and decarbonization strategies.
