Corporate carbon footprint
Taking climate action with your company
Corporate carbon footprint has become a key element of non-financial reporting. Investors are looking into rankings such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Carbon Disclosure Project to choose in which companies to invest.
More and more companies are also using their corporate footprint for their own purposes: to set and monitor carbon footprint reduction targets. This is a good way to align with government policies for companies to reduce their carbon footprint, which are becoming increasingly common since most countries signed the Paris climate agreement.
Measuring your carbon footprint to develop actionable reduction targets
PRé can help your company to quantify its carbon footprint and set reduction targets that align with the goal to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, without compromising your business.
We can help you:
- calculate your baseline corporate carbon footprint results and identify the hotspots
- set reduction targets for your organization, e.g. according to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI), and outline a strategy to meet these targets
- deliver the model and tools that will allow you to calculate other scenarios and monitor your improvements
We can also help you set meaningful reduction targets for other environmental themes, e.g. water.
Take meaningful action and build your reputation
Being transparent about your company’s impacts will increase your reputation and attract investors and motivated staff. It will also help you to identify what climate mitigation actions to focus on, and understand how each action will improve your company’s footprint. So that ultimately, your organization can operate within the 2°C target, or even more ambitiously 1.5°C. To publicly show your commitment to these targets, you can register them at the SBTI.
Our consultancy services and tools provide you with a robust, efficient, future-proof solution to corporate footprint monitoring and reporting. If you start now, you will also create a competitive advantage for your company by staying ahead of potential policies and carbon taxes.
