A carbon footprint is a calculation of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Your footprint will be the baseline against which you track your future climate progress. It will also enable you to understand your full impact across all Scopes of your organisation, which will be vital for your sustainability reporting and essential to achieving Net Zero.
Your carbon footprint should be compliant with an internationally recognised standard for GHG calculation such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol or ISO 14064. These frameworks ensure that we are all reporting in a standardised manner and that your footprint meets internationally agreed requirements.
Many companies find that the majority of emissions lie beyond their direct control and within Scope 3 (this will include your supply chain, your business travel and/or potentially your investment portfolio). At EcoAct, we can help you to overcome the challenges of carbon footprint calculation to help you gain a robust and credible carbon footprint.
