CARBON FOOTPRINT


Evaluating the main sources of carbon emissions of your business is the starting point for your carbon management programme.

Like a doctor measuring a patient’s pulse, establishing a baseline carbon footprint provides a valuable indicator of possible areas of where your business can improve.

A carbon footprint is required by all South African companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, as well as for companies that fall under the South African Mandatory GHG Reporting Legislation.

A carbon footprint will also help you understand whether or not you are liable to pay carbon tax.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A CARBON FOOTPRINT?


  • Continuous monitoring: a carbon footprint allows you to monitor your climate strategy and make adjustments to continue to improve your carbon footprint.
  • Cost savings: You can identify carbon emission hotspots across your business. Remember, emission reductions also mean saving money. (The less electricity you're using, the more money you're saving).
  • Becoming climate neutral: a carbon footprint is the first step to become a climate neutral organisation.
  • Map out an internal carbon price: Your current carbon footprint defines the internal carbon cost to your organisation. Reducing the footprint, reduces the cost. An internal carbon price is also used as a parameter to manage risks of future investments.
  • Become a sustainable business brand: Our footprinting software solution CO2management allows you to set up a standardised monitoring system to improve your score at reporting standards such as the CDP. Higher scoring increases your reputation and profile as a sustainable business.

Knowing your carbon footprint is important as it is the starting point for developing an effective corporate climate change strategy.

CO2MANAGEMENT


CO2management is our proprietary Greenhouse Gas accounting tool that puts you in the driving seat to effectively measure and monitor your organisation’s carbon emissions.

CO2management enables you to easily calculate your carbon footprint: all you need is to define your scope boundaries. You then feed the CO2management database with your monthly, quarterly or annual data for electricity, transportation, processes etc. Once you entered your data, the tool automatically generates a carbon footprint report following the GHG Protocol standard.

By using CO2management continuously, you can track your carbon performance over time and identify emission hot spots sooner rather than later.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CO2MANAGEMENT?


  • Develop transparent and comparable GHG inventories in accordance with the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard
  • Recognise and manage carbon risks
  • Increase resource productivity and energy efficiency
  • Convert your company's energy usage into climate impact by feeding the tool with annual data for heating, electricity, transport etc.
  • Create a report and compare data between units and companies over time.
  • Use data generated by the tool for CDP or GRI reporting

Spend your time on realising your climate goals, not paperwork – choose CO2management.

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY


Without an effective strategy, it is likely that you will be managing resources inefficiently, failing to realise the full benefits of your sustainability programme or falling short of your client expectations. Climate Neutral Group can help you to evaluate your current sustainability strategy, or develop one from scratch.

We offer a wide range of services which can be tailored to meet your business’ specific requirements and objectives. We will work with you to clearly formulate your aspirations and goals whilst guiding you on your journey towards a sustainable and climate neutral business.

Whatever approach you choose – a standardised offsetting service or a customised and multi-faceted sustainability strategy – your business’ negative impact on the environment can always be reduced as much as possible.

WE CAN HELP YOU TO:


  • Develop a Sustainability Roadmap to assist your organisation to map out its sustainability journey. It is an integrated approach for embedding environmental and social concerns into the DNA of your company.
  • Set meaningful carbon reduction targets in line with climate science in order to future proof your business
  • Benchmark your climate performance compared to industry standards, or specific competitors
  • Assess carbon reduction opportunities

CARBON OFFSETS


Not all carbon emissions can be eliminated, no matter how hard you try. Offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gases allows businesses like yours to tackle climate change efficiently by financing low-carbon energy projects which reduce emissions elsewhere.

By offsetting your impact on the environment and purchasing the equivalent amount of carbon credits from certified offset projects, you are taking full responsibility for emissions that can’t be eliminated.

Carbon offsetting is a cost-effective way of easing your impact on the climate, strengthening your social and sustainability commitments, and becoming a better business.

BENEFITS OF CARBON OFFSETTING


Carbon offsetting can help your business to:

  • reduce its carbon tax
  • improve its B-BBEE scorecard
  • support its CSI policy
  • win new business
  • build brand value
  • gain competitive advantage
  • motivate staff & customers

Our high quality projects sharpen your positioning and assist you in reaching corporate sustainability commitments - all while working towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
