How can I reduce my company's carbon footprint?
Reducing the carbon footprint of your business is a multi-step process:
- Carry out an initial assessment of your carbon footprint.
- Identify the most important emission headings, and find ways to reduce them by improving the accuracy of the data used for measurement.
- Involve your suppliers by asking them to calculate the carbon footprint of the goods and services they supply. The measurement will be all the more accurate and you will then be able to implement a responsible purchasing strategy.
- Set up an action plan and a measurement strategy over time to ensure that it is implemented and effective.
