A carbon footprint calculation is the first step towards sustainability as it prioritizes a business’s goals. By distributing surveys to both management and employees, we are able to measure all sources of emissions from electricity use to transportation to waste generation.
We then calculate the carbon footprint for each sector and implement procurement and management programs to reduce resource use based on the results. Sustainability training is then provided for all levels of staff to maintain the new culture of efficiency.
A program for effective transition to sustainable business practices is developed and customized for each budget. Finally, we detail sustainability initiatives and successes for communication to peers and stakeholders.
Depending on the business’s needs and resources, we can provide an all encompassing in-depth analysis, or remain within the confines of the immediate office space while still creating the potential to move outwards when time and budget allow.
If a basic audit is preferred, the Green Your Office program may be of interest. It encompasses the same surveys as the full carbon footprint audit with emphasis on the office environment only.
