Carbon Visibility is today celebrating the launch of Carbon Click®, which aims to revolutionise the way large and complex organisations approach their journey to carbon zero.
The online assessment platform allows organisations to calculate their carbon footprint, giving an instant answer (below right) on completion of an assessment process, which is then expanded upon in a detailed report.
Carbon Click® takes a look at Scope One and Two emissions, delving into an organisation’s use of electricity, natural gas and other forms of fuel (below left), their use of air travel and their fleet vehicles.
It also asks for details of their green credentials, in terms of their commitment to cycle to work schemes, renewable energy use, offsetting carbon and more.
In what is thought to be a first for the industry, Carbon Click® also works out how much carbon their supply chain contributes, for those who want to make an extra commitment to reducing their own carbon footprint and put their influence over other companies to good use.
Neil Armstrong, CEO of Carbon Visibility, said: “Carbon emissions are high on the agenda in business today, inspired for example by Microsoft’s pledge to be carbon negative by 2030 and the UK government’s commitment for the country to achieve net zero carbon by 2050.
“The difficulty for companies is that calculating their carbon footprint is very complicated, especially for complex businesses and for those with a large network of suppliers.”
He added: “Our aim is to make it as simple as possible for organisations to calculate their Carbon Footprint for their own Scope One and Two emissions.
“But what sets Carbon Visibility apart is that we engage with the supply chain through Carbon Click® to enable organisations to find out how much this contributes to overall carbon output, which is a hugely complex task, especially for large businesses with thousands of companies in their supply chain.”
