Since September 2013 legislation requires all UK quoted companies to report their global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the Directors’ Report.
A growing number of organisations are already calculating and reporting on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under other voluntary schemes like the Carbon Disclosure Project.
TEAM’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Service can accurately calculate your organisation’s carbon footprint and report on carbon emissions following the GHG protocol to comply with any current legislation or voluntary schemes.
With extensive experience of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and other emissions schemes, our consultants can audit your existing emissions reporting and assess their suitability for mandatory GHG Reporting to ensure you are ready to comply. Making maximum use of data which has already been gathered, compliance may not be as complicated as you think.
In addition to compliance there are a number of additional benefits to calculating an organisation’s GHG emissions.
Having an accurate footprint provides companies and their stakeholders with confidence that they understand their emissions, are in a strong position to manage them and are able to maximise the competitive benefits of these factors in the marketplace.
Clear communication of an organisation’s footprint through reporting plays an important role in achieving maximum business benefit.
TEAM’s GHG Reporting Service provides organisations with accurate carbon footprinting data for mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting or to comply with any voluntary schemes like the Carbon Disclosure Project.
Reporting includes emissions from each individual site, site group or country and can provide information on all types of emissions associated with energy, water, waste, fossil fuels and more.
We can use data from existing emissions reporting and/or any energy management system to report on the basis of tCO2e (tonnes of CO2 equivalent) or the set of 6 individual Kyoto gases. Calculating the first carbon footprint for an organisation provides a benchmark against which future carbon performance can be measured.
TEAM’s GHG Reporting Service includes the following:
With over 25 years’ experience of Energy and Carbon Management TEAM helps organisations develop strategies to target emissions, identify specific opportunities for carbon saving measures and design a long term carbon management plan, for example by using TEAM’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting or Project Tracking Software.
Our experienced team of Energy Consultants can also carry out surveys of selected buildings and operations to pinpoint the most effective carbon reduction measures.
TEAM is the leading supplier of utility management software and services in the UK providing solutions across a number of sectors. Working with over 500 customers we provide an extensive and flexible range of services to help reduce energy costs, energy consumption and carbon emissions.
TEAM’s GHG Reporting Service identifies the three categories required by the GHG Protocol. The direct and indirect emissions can all be included:
Scope 1: All direct GHG emissions from sources owned or controlled by the organisation.
Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions from the generation/consumption of purchased electricity, heat or steam.
Scope 3: Other indirect emissions, such as the extraction and production of purchased materials and fuels, transport-related activities in vehicles not owned or controlled by the reporting entity, electricity-related activities not covered in Scope 2, outsourced activities, waste disposal, etc.
