Carbon Accounting

The ‘Carbon Footprint’ of a business is the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) in tonnes of CO2e produced to directly and indirectly support business activities. To accurately calculate a carbon footprint of a business, you will need to collect data about the business; such as energy consumption, heat and lighting options, water consumption, waste production, business mileage, owned and leased vehicle types, refrigeration options – among others, before converting this data into the tonnes CO2e.

This can be a complex process to undertake and requires a good understanding of carbon management and data analysis. Carbon-Zero can help you to:

  • Identify and understand the scope of your carbon footprint
  • Collect and collate data in the correct format for calculating your carbon footprint
  • Review, select and understand an appropriate methodology of carbon footprinting
  • Undertake the required calculations
  • Identify and manage any business risks whilst maximising on cost saving and energy efficient opportunities
All of our carbon emission surveys are carried out and reported in ordinance with the requirements of the GHG Protocol, while Carbon Neutrality is reported in line with PAS 2060:2014 standards.

We also offer a wide array of carbon calculators which you can use to calculate a simple carbon footprint of your business independently, and can design bespoke calculators for more complex businesses or processes within a business.
