This article presents the CSRD, a new EU directive for corporate extra-financial reporting, coming into force in January 2024. It concerns a larger number of companies, introduces "double materiality", and imposes strict standards.
Discover the history and achievements of Global Climate Initiatives, a worldwide initiative focused on reducing the carbon footprint of companies.
The carbon price aims to internalize the hidden costs of the damage caused by GHG emissions into market prices. Its objective is to encourage economic agents to adopt a low-carbon pathway.
A complete balance sheet is the inventory of GHG emissions through three categories, also called scopes. The objective is to categorize greenhouse gas emissions by item or by type of activity of a company. The integration of all these emissions in a GHG assessment allows a complete review and then, to engage solutions to reduce them.
The GHG inventory® calculates all the greenhouse gas emissions of a company. Carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide... emissions of several types of gases are reviewed. The objective of this approach for a company is to have a precise idea of its carbon footprint.
The main mission of the GCI Authorized Expert is to present GCI services, to convince his interlocutors of their autonomy to use them, and to spread this good practice to all their subsidiaries, subcontractors and suppliers.
Louis Gac, Junior CTO of GCI, demonstrates the technological specificities of the GCI platform, as well as its added value.
Currently, the set of technologies used to develop the GCI platform can be adapted to the constraints of all types of companies, whether they are small or large and in any country. The GCI application relies heavily on crowdsourcing.
Charlotte Laurent, research and methodology engineer, explains how the GCI platform adapts to different sectors of activity. Indeed, the user has access to questionnaires adapted to his sector, with predetermined questions.
The platform integrates all the emission factor databases as well as the possibility of making composite emission factors.
A 100% digital calculator, its proven ergonomics and pedagogy allow users with no particular knowledge of carbon accounting to be autonomous in a few hours and to use it 24/7. The platform also provides tools to develop and implement action plans to reduce emissions, as well as contribution/offset programs.
Philippe Mangeard, President of GCI, presents the Global Climate Initiatives platform. Today, half a dozen start-ups have launched, which shows that the market has evolved and that today we need to move in this digital direction.
We started ten years ago. Until three years ago, we were the only digital platform to make this kind of proposal.
Nice Matin interviews the creators of the Global Climate Initiatives platform whose R&D is based in Nice. The GCI platform allows any company or community to measure its global carbon footprint and obtain advice on how to reduce it. Using an online educational questionnaire, each company activity is transformed into a carbon footprint.
