What is a Carbon Footprint?
A carbon footprint is generated when you or your business perform an action that creates green house gas emissions. For example burning gasoline when we drive, or use company vehicles, heating our buildings or using coal powered electricity. The main goal of a Carbon footprint report is to identify the major sources of your company’s emissions so then the appropriate actions can be taken. Unlike other Carbon Footprint calculators Standard Carbon reports include the entire company’s supply chain emissions.
What is a GHG inventory ?
A GHG inventory or Greenhouse Gas inventory is just a more detailed way of describing a carbon footprint report. So after your business’s carbon footprint is calculated it is provided in a GHG inventory report that is sent to you. This information can help create strategies to reduce your GHG emissions, they’re also an authorized way to achieve recognition for tackling climate change.
What are the advantages of knowing my carbon footprint?
Simply put it’s beneficial for the environment and for your business. With coal power, energy costs rising, and the horrible environmental effects of burning natural gases combined the amount of C02 in our atmosphere, knowing your carbon footprint provides you and your company with the information you need to create informed decisions on how you can help save our planet, and save money. We also know that consumers are becoming more and more concerned about their own environmental impact, and they react more positively with a business that is taking the necessary steps to reduce their carbon footprint. Standard Carbon GHG inventory reports are the most authorized reports in Canada, so you and your customers can trust that you’re taking the right steps in reducing your carbon footprint.
