We use Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol carbon assessment methodology, PAS 2050 and PAS 2060 to provide independent advice supporting carbon neutrality for:

  • Whole organisations
  • Products/ goods and services
  • Scope 1, 2 and 3

Key areas of support:

  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for products and services
  • Carbon baseline for starting year
  • Carbon modelling
  • Carbon footprinting and options appraisal
  • Carbon Management Plans
  • Net zero strategy

What are the key elements of life cycle assessment?

  1. Identify and quantify the environmental impact; e.g. the energy and materials consumed, the wastes produced and emissions generated
  2. Evaluate the environmental impacts
  3. Prioritise actions to reduce the environmental impacts.

How is a carbon footprint calculated?

Organisational Boundary

The Organisational Boundary defines the businesses and operations that constitute yourcompany for the purpose of accounting and reporting greenhouse gas emissions. You can choose to report either the emissions from operations over which you have financial or operational control (the control approach) or from operations according to your share of equity in the operation (the equity share approach).

Operational Boundary

Defining the operational boundary involves identifying emissions associated with your operations, categorising them as direct and indirect emissions, and choosing the scope of accounting and reporting for indirect emissions.

  • Scope 1: emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by you (i.e. any owned or controlled activities that release emissions straight into the atmosphere).
  • Scope 2: indirect GHG emissions from the consumption of purchased electricity, heat, steam or cooling
  • Scope 3: indirect GHG emissions from other activities. A detailed Standard exists that sets out the rules for 15 categories of Scope 3 emissions.
