Carbon Footprinting

The management of Carbon or more specifically Greenhouse Gases is becoming increasing important in the world we live in.  The UK Government have ambitious binding targets for reducing carbon emissions, with the end goal 80% reduction by 2050.  Governments, supply chains, enlightened consumers are all demanding information on the environmental impact of companies, products and services. Decarbonated can help produce the specific information, figures and strategies needed to satisfy these demands, through the following services:

  •     Carbon Footprinting
  •     Carbon Reduction
  •     Carbon Offsetting
  •     Carbon Neutrality

Carbon Footprinting

Decarbonated offer the ability to calculate carbon footprints for the following:

  •     Lifecycle carbon emissions arising from Products, Services, Events and Projects.
  •     The calculation of the entire Greenhouse Gas Emissions of an Organisation.

Decarbonated work to all the major greenhouse gas / carbon accounting standards.

  •     ISO 14064: 2006 Parts 1, 2 & 3 – Specifications for quantifying greenhouse gas emissions at an organisational and project level.
  •     PAS 2050: 2008 – Specification for the assessment of the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of goods and services.
  •     PAS 2060: 2010 – Specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality.

Carbon Reduction

Once Decarbonated have calculated the various sources of Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions in tonnes, the focus is then developing a Carbon Reduction Strategy through reviewing resource use and operational efficiency. see Carbon Management

Carbon Offsetting

Back to top

Carbon Offsetting is the investment in carbon saving or reducing projects around the world to the equivalent value of the greenhouse gas emissions arising from a product, service or organisation.  At Decarbonated, carbon offsetting is not the solution to the environmental problems we face, however believe they do have a part to play in the move towards carbon neutrality.

The types of projects that will be invested in will range from sustainable technology implementation, renewable energy production, reforestation and avoided deforestation.  The scale and location of projects vary greatly.  All carbon credits are UN compliant and go through rigorous processes to ensure quality and that they do create the carbon savings they claim.

Carbon and Energy management can help reduce the Carbon Footprint.

Carbon Neutrality

Back to top

If an organisation is looking to go even further and wishes to work towards ‘Carbon Neutrality’, Decarbonated can assist.  By starting with carbon footprinting, Decarbonated will then produce a Carbon Footprint Management Plan which aims at reducing the footprint.  Once a Carbon Footprint Management Plan has been implemented the next step is to Carbon Offset the remaining emissions.  By an organisation going through the full process of calculate, reduce and offset its carbon, the term ‘Carbon Neutral’ can be used.

Carbon Footprinting is an area which is growing and increasing pressure for mandatory greenhouse gas reporting is gaining momentum
