Both production activity and provision of services require various actions involving specific levels of atmospheric greenhouse-gas emissions (GHG).
With our organisational carbon footprint service, manufacturing and tertiary-sector companies can assess their carbon footprint and make a commitment to reduce it, informing customers and competitors of milestones reached.
Awareness of your company’s environmental impact and carbon footprint gives the opportunity to track environmental performance and inform internal and external stakeholders of offsetting measures undertaken (environmental marketing), to strengthen your green reputation.
The Organisational carbon footprint service starts with the analysis of company activities, production of primary energy vectors and estimated emissions for the entire value chain of the structure, in order to quantify greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions. This increases awareness of the environmental impact of your company and is essential in order to identify solutions, beginning with monitoring and reduction of energy consumption.
Assessment of emissions for calculation of the organisational carbon footprint takes into consideration the following elements:
- Energy used by fixed systems (e.g. combustion of gas and other energy sources)
- Energy used by mobile systems (e.g. supplier transportation and consumption of company fleet)
- Production of raw materials
- Purchased electricity and/or thermal energy consumption
- Direct treatment of waste and wastewaters
- Fugitive emissions or emissions from industrial processes (e.g. leaks of refrigerant gases)
Energy Team solutions to reduce organisational carbon footprint
The key phases of the carbon-footprint process offered by Energy Team are:
- Analysis: identification of the company’s carbon footprint
- Mitigation: selection of possible measures to reduce product emissions in order to reduce the company’s environmental impact
- Offsetting: measures to neutralise the carbon footprint
- Public disclosure of the results of analysis through marketing strategies and targeted communications
