Sustainability: What it Means, and How to Get Started

The first step toward lowering your corporate carbon footprint is understanding it. Our proven methodologies give you a clear and comprehensive understanding of your company’s greenhouse gas emissions, helping you set realistically ambitious reduction targets while identifying opportunities to reduce your carbon footprint.

Your carbon footprint involves more than just the greenhouse gasses produced by your own operations. It includes your entire value- and supply chains and extends to employee commuting and business travel. We calculate the GHG emissions associated with these extended parts of your business, giving you the insights needed to plan truly meaningful climate action.

We document the carbon embedded in each product you manufacture or sell, at each stage of its life, from manufacture to sale and use, and through to disposal. This does more than give you a meaningfully granular look at your GHG contributions; it also helps identify the appropriate standard to use when calculating the carbon footprint of each product for which you are responsible.

Your extended carbon footprint extends to your company’s investment portfolio, including pension funds and retirement accounts, insurance instruments, and sovereign wealth funds. We carefully document the carbon footprint represented by your company’s entire range of financial investments, giving you another avenue to document your commitment to meaningful action.
