Energy Audits

A large proportion of the UK’s total footprint, almost 30%, comes from energy supplied to the grid. Relying on the grid to decarbonise will not deliver the results you need in time. With a substantial increase in Government energy management legislation and efficiency reporting schemes, it is highly important that you can understand and take control of your consumption.

By assessing your on-site usage, completing efficiency analysis, system reviews, and detailed feasibility studies, we can provide a comprehensive report highlighting key areas for energy cost savings and emission reductions.

Carbon Footprint Assessments

There is a fast-growing market demand for carbon disclosure and environmental transparency. By disclosing your environmental position, you can build trust with key stakeholders, identify and tackle climate-related financial risks and get ahead of future carbon policies.

A carbon footprint assessment is the first building block in any sustainable strategy. It is essential in informing sustainable business strategy, benchmarking progress and highlighting key areas of the business to target.

What we offer our clients is a 3-year assessment plan. This enables our sustainability assessors to develop an effective and longstanding emissions reduction strategy, helping secure a sustainable future for your organisation.

carbon offsetting

Companies of all sizes, in all sectors, can take measures now in the critical decade of climate action. Carbon offsetting provides a route for organisations to reduce emissions where they cannot yet be avoided. Usually, investment into offset projects goes further than just maintenance itself, boosting social and economic aspects of local communities. For the environmentally conscious, carbon offsetting acts as a tool to drive environmental progress in areas that need it the most. 

Carbon neutrality is achieved, first, by calculating a carbon footprint and then, by reducing it to zero through a combination of internal emission reductions and carbon offsetting. Therefore, carbon neutrality is naturally the next step on from our carbon footprint program. We enable companies to go carbon neutral through our PAS 2060 certification process which helps demonstrate claims of carbon neutrality accurately and transparently.

ACHIEVING CARBON NEUTRALITY

measure

Measure your footprint using our comprehensive foot printing workbook. You will enter readily available company data on your fuel and electricity consumption which we will then use to calculate a complete a Scope 1 & 2 emissions inventory

target

We will assess your footprint, provide insight into were internal reductions can be made and set a realistic reduction goal for your business. Internal reductions are key to any credible climate change approach.

reduce

We will help you implement internal reductions by proposing reduction methods ranging from small, low-cost adjustments to major upgrades delivering significant emissions reductions.

Offset

Any residual emissions will be accounted for by the purchase of and retirement of carbon credits that we will manage on your behalf.

Carbon Credit Quality

Although carbon reduction projects are credited in terms of carbon credits (each representing 1 tonne CO2 reduction/removal), they are not all created equally. Pricing for credits listed under different project types can vary quite drastically. There are many different factors that drive pricing models such as quality, vintage, project costs, supply-and-demand and additional co-benefits attached to the credits. Credits with verified co-benefits are often considered a superior investment as it shows a wider commitment to sustainable goals, environmental and social.

There are also multiple jurisdictions and crediting standards which can both influence the price, and the quality of the offsets.

For this reason, new participants to carbon offsetting find the market quite confusing and the process of purchasing an effective offset, complex. We can facilitate the process by providing access to projects from leading carbon reduction and offset providers under the governing body of the ICROA. The ICROA helps to promote integrity in the voluntary carbon markets by maintaining a Code of Best Practice in all climate projects.

Internal Carbon Pricing

For organisations looking to assess the climate-related financial impact of new projects, business models, products or investments, internal carbon pricing acts as an important mechanism by which hidden risks can become uncovered and sustainable development is incentivised. There are two main ways by which organisations may implement an internal carbon price:

  • Shadow pricing – when a surcharge on carbon emissions is considered in all business cases and feasibility studies to assess the profitability of a new venture whilst regulating the associated emissions.
  • Carbon fee – a fee may be charged to internal business units according to their GHG emissions, motivating them to make reductions and driving low carbon innovation.

According to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change analysis suggests that the global price on carbon could converge on around £90 per tonne by 2030. It is highly important, therefore, to assess the possible financial implications that future carbon restrictions and regulations can have on your business.

Energy Reduction Strategies

Business as usual is no longer sustainable.

 In the current climate, a long-term business strategy should balance sustainability with profitability. An effective energy reduction strategy is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Therefore, we rely on detailed energy analysis, in-depth feasibility studies and equipment analysis to be able to tailor a strategy, specific to your needs.
