How do you measure an organisation’s carbon footprint?

We follow UK government guidelines in measuring an organisation’s carbon footprint.

In line with the Department for Energy and Climate Change’s carbon neutral guidance we always include scope 1 and 2 emissions (direct emissions and energy use), and work with organisations to identify and include significant scope 3 emissions (for example business travel, commuting, waste, large sources of emissions in the supply chain or product delivery and use). 

We work with clients to collect the relevant data and use Defra emissions factors to calculate the carbon footprint.
