What Carbon Savings do Your Products and Processes Offer Clients?
Across industry and commerce, national businesses are increasingly looking to their supply chain to support their carbon emissions reduction targets.
Industries including energy producers, power suppliers, National water mains and other utilities companies, and the National Health Service are now issuing directives to their third-party suppliers, and through tendering opportunities are prioritising and incentivising low carbon and sustainable solutions.
It is not just on price that tender submissions are reviewed, many tenders request what carbon reducing initiatives and technologies your business offers and will ask for an indication of the carbon savings you can deliver during the contracted period.
So, if you have..
A technology that extends service life.
A technology that lasts longer than your competitors.
A remote sensory device that can remove the need for travel and manpower
A technology that reduces waste or improves recyclability
A business model offering refurbished components versus new
The carbon savings can be measured to highlight the benefits to your customers.
Carbon-Zero have carried out many technical assessments on such innovative products and processes, highlighting the embodied carbon in the manufacture of goods, implementation of products and services and improved efficiencies in supply chain or waste stream management, against an industry standard baseline, by comparing the carbon emissions associated with each product.
Using a tried and tested PAS methodology, we can establish a full embodied carbon value for the new product – covering raw materials utilised, its manufacture or sourcing, transport to your workshops, machining or processing, delivery to client’s site, manpower mobilisation and installation.
For an improved technology which reduces atmospheric emissions, or extends the life of a product, we would then establish the comparative carbon emissions associated with a refurbished item, or a technology that offers longer life, reduced service intervals, early warning of failure, reduction in the number of new items required, and the waste generated from disposal of more regular replacements.
