What's your company's carbon shoe size?

Calculating this is the first step in your net-zero journey.

What is carbon footprinting?

A corporate carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions your company emits into the atmosphere. It's the baseline from which you act to mitigate carbon risks, take climate action, and future-proof your business.

Why measure yours

Globally, businesses measure their carbon footprint. The question has become less about ‘why?’ and more about ‘why not?’

Emissions are expensive:

Carbon has a price to businesses, governments and investors; the UK hopes to reach over £40 per tonne of CO2e to achieve net-zero. Understanding where carbon hotspots lie brings you one step closer to controlling and lowering their cost to you. It just makes commercial sense.

It's table stakes:

127 governments worldwide are committed to net-zero, and companies pledging to reach it tripled in 2020. With those pledges come regulations to ensure every company pulls their weight to help them achieve them. Carbon footprinting is the basic requirement.

It's the benchmark:

From customers demanding access to transparent sustainability data to investors de-risking their portfolio, your carbon footprint provides the comparative baseline you're expected to provide.

Why do we need carbon footprinting 2.0?

So carbon footprinting is a necessity, but its current drawbacks aren't necessary. The typically labour-intensive task requires pulling information from numerous data sources, suppliers and disparate parts of the value chain, often taking many months to complete and involving multiple excel sheets! Then there's the accuracy of the data itself. The accuracy and completeness of a carbon footprint are frequently debated due to data gaps, questions about double accounting, and outdated emission factors involved in the calculation. With all this, it's no surprise footprinting remains an annual activity, but that comes at the cost of climate action. Results that are out of date as soon as they are published make managing, let alone reducing, emissions harder to do. Our approach to carbon footprinting is different.

Carbon footprinting 2.0 is here.

Widen Your Lens

Your value chain emissions in one place

No business operates in isolation. Its footprint, including its carbon one, spans well beyond the obvious controlled assets to the depths of the supply chain. Scope 3, i.e. emissions from your supply chain, can account for up to 90% of a company's carbon emissions.

You are considered accountable for your scope 3 emissions.

And, given that you can't manage what you don't measure, by automating emission data collection across your value chain, we make it easier to do both.

Smart Data Sourcing

Full Scope 3

High Precision Accuracy

Numbers you can bank on

Data gaps are inevitable. That's right, we said it. From suppliers not playing ball to a glitch in recordings, missing information is part of the sustainability journey.

Our platform works to reduce the barriers to information across your value chain. Still, when the inevitable happens, a combination of our clever AI technology, carbon accounting expertise and proprietary emission factor database enables us to estimate and fill those gaps as accurately as possible.

Honesty is the best policy. That’s why our data collection, calculation methodology, and reporting processes are fully transparent.

Proprietary Emissions Database

Auditable and Transparent Reporting

Actionable Carbon Insights

Turn data into a net-zero game plan

Static carbon footprints are out of date as soon as they're published; they give you a baseline to work from, but not an ongoing game plan for carbon management. Our software keeps you up to speed with real-time data flows throughout the year.

Whether that roadmap involves setting a science-based target, increasing supplier engagement or activating emission reduction initiatives, our platform makes it all possible.
