Consumer and investor expectations are changing. Today’s corporations must communicate more than quarterly profits. It’s now imperative to look at the long-term impact of your operations on the environment, your employees, and your community. This means not only understanding your carbon footprint, but assessing risks, engaging your leadership, and setting specific goals. For large, geographically dispersed companies, carbon management and sustainability reporting can be a daunting task. However, with the right foundational data and expertise, companies can prepare themselves for the evolving world of disclosure.
Your carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide, or Greenhouse Gas Emissions, that your organization contributes to the environment. A long-term carbon management plan provides your organization with a documented strategy and roadmap that will help you prepare for the physical and economic risks of climate change.
Energy and carbon management go hand-in-hand, because fossil fuels, including coal and natural gas, are responsible for most carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. By collecting and analyzing complete, accurate data on your organization’s energy use, you can begin to better understand your carbon footprint. This data will inform your long-term planning as well as annual reporting and disclosure.
Carbon management software streamlines your company’s carbon reporting process, by helping your organization centralize and calculate your global emissions. Intuitive reporting and trend analysis help companies track year over year progress and streamline disclosure to industry frameworks such as CDP, Global Reporting Institute (GRI), and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB).
Today’s companies face real financial risks, including the rising cost of water, global regulatory requirements, and a price on carbon. Investors realize these risks and are pushing for transparency in not only your carbon management and sustainability reporting, but also in your ability to integrate risk mitigation into your corporate strategy.
As part of a carbon management strategy, our carbon advisors work closely with you to understand where you are today, track emissions, disclose your goals and progress, and map out your path towards achievable carbon reduction targets. This end-to-end strategy includes:
