GCI CALCULATORS

TAILORED TO YOUR ORGANIZATION

Global Climate Initiative enables Carbon Footprint calculation for all types and sizes of private and public organisations and companies.

Its calculators comply with the various regulations in force; they also enable the assessment of GHG emissions to be extended to Scope 3 based on the Association Bilan Carbone® and the GHG Protocol‘s reference framework.

GCI's OFFERING IS SUITABLE FOR

ALL TYPES OF COMPANIES AND COMMUNITIES, OF ALL SIZES

GCI is a complete response to the demands of sole traders, retailers, microbusinesses, SMEs, ETIs and even large groups and local authorities who are all questioning their global impact on the climate and wish to commit themselves, in proportion to their means, to a process of reducing their CO2 emissions, the direct and indirect benefits of which are increasingly apparent.

GCI covers a wide range of users of all sizes and from all industries:

Industrial, service and tertiary sector companies

GCI address the needs of authorities that want to refine the measurement of their carbon footprint, particularly Scope 3, which is difficult to grasp due to large numbers of suppliers, subcontractors and service providers.

As a result they want a better way of measuring their impact in order to reduce it, and potentially offset it.

 

THE NUMEROUS BENEFITS:

Ethical

Live up to your personal and professional ethics by “doing your bit” in the fight against climate change.

Look to the future

Good groundwork for a possible future carbon tax.

Regulatory compliance

Ensure regulatory compliance: Since January 2012 (decree Nº 2011-829 of 11 July 2011), local authorities with more than 50,000 inhabitants are obliged to complete a statutory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory.

However, there is nothing to prevent a smaller authority from using this method of calculation on a voluntary basis to ensure a consistent approach.

Positive communication

Positive communication reinforcing or announcing a change in the authority/company’s stance both internally to its employees and officers/shareholders, but also externally to its fellow citizens/customers, partners and other stakeholders, demonstrating a “Zero Net Carbon” goal as part of a responsible business model.

Routes towards reduction

Establishing routes towards Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction that will always result in substantial savings.

WHAT IS THE METHOD OF CALCULATION?

This is the statutory method required by Article 75 of the Grenelle II Act, which covers, in addition to Scopes 1 and 2, activities related to the company’s upstream and downstream activities (Scope 3) since Decree no.2016-1138 of 19 August 2016 relating to environmental information which must be included in the company’s annual report.

The framework of the system to calculate a GHG Inventory should also be taken into account as part of the tendering process: a public procurer is perfectly entitled under its bidding procedure to require the inclusion in the environmental aspects of the evaluation criteria of the bidder’s GHG inventory for their offering (reference: Question AN published in the OJ: 28/05/2019 / Answer published in the OJ: 27/08/2019 page: 7760)

OUR SOLUTION ?

As a result, GCI has developed a specific offer for local authorities, suitable for:

  • its central organisation and its various territorial, legal, economic, commercial and administrative entities to carry out their own GHG Inventory
  • its service providers, subcontractors and suppliers (Scope 3),
  • accurate, consistent and compliant calculations of their direct and indirect GHG emissions,
  • definition of roadmaps and goals that are regularly monitored and readjusted if necessary,
  • educational proposals to research solutions to reduce their emissions.
  • “Carbon” benchmark for calls for tenders

They will therefore have access to:

tools GCI UK
a centralised consolidation and analysis tool

for the definition and verification over time of a value-added roadmap for reducing their overall carbon footprint.

d’un pilotage écoresponsable
efficient eco-responsible management of offerings from

suppliers, subcontractors and service providers given the ease of use of the GCI platform and the competitive prices offered.

This is a real opportunity for a local authority to encourage all its service providers and suppliers to draw up a serious GHG inventory so that their offerings can be managed in an eco-responsible way.

Good groundwork for a possible future carbon tax.

Regulatory compliance

Ensure regulatory compliance: Since June 2011, under the Grenelle II Law of 12 July 2010, certain companies (companies with more than 500 employees – 250 for overseas departments) have been required to use a method to carry out their inventory every 3 years.

However, there is nothing to prevent a smaller company from using this method of calculation on a voluntary basis to ensure a consistent approach.
