Carbon Footprinting

Managing carbon emissions can reduce costs

 

The challenge of climate change is drawing increasing attention and concern to the issue of carbon emissions. Amongst other things, stakeholders, regulators and customers now expect organisations to manage, minimise and report their carbon impacts, and demonstrate a commitment to reducing them.

 

FuturoFirma helps organisations and businesses assess and measure the carbon impacts of their buildings, operations, products and supply chains; and works with them to manage and reduce their
carbon emissions.

 

One of the metrics that we utilise is the carbon footprint – which is a measure of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that are directly or indirectly caused by an organisation. Amongst other things, a carbon footprint provides a valuable tool for reporting sustainability performance and compliance to stakeholders.

 

Benefits of measuring and managing carbon emissions:

 

  bullet

Improves decision-making and strategies for CO2 reduction:
The old maxim, “If you don’t measure it, you cannot manage it” certainly holds true in the context of CO2 management. A measure of carbon impact can help organisations understand how they are performing against CO2 targets, and provide them with the information required to take corrective action.

 

  bullet

Realise cost savings and increases profitability: Improved processes and technologies that result in a lower carbon footprint will also improve efficiencies, optimise resource consumption, reduce waste and ultimately realise sustained cost savings.

 

  bullet

Provides confirmation of an organisation’s ‘sustainability’ credentials: A low carbon footprint demonstrates to stakeholders that the organisation is responsible, considerate of the environment and committed to minimising the risks associated with climate change. This can help to attract customers, good staff and investors, all of whom increasingly consider wider impacts in their decision making.

 

  bullet

Helps to pre-empt imminent regulation: International, regional and global recognition of the threat of climate change is resulting in more stringent regulation of CO2 emissions in many countries. A strategic approach for measuring, managing and reducing CO2 emissions will therefore put an organisation in a strong position globally and prepare it to meet future regulations and legislation.
