Every organisation that uses energy, transports goods and
people or makes products is responsible for some greenhouse
The sources of these emissions include:
- Energy for buildings and manufacturing.
- Manufacturing processes, refrigeration and chemical reactions.
- Incineration and decomposition of waste.
We help organisations to install and run the systems they
need to understand and control their greenhouse gas emissions.
A greenhouse gas emissions assessment is the first step in
the carbon management process, giving a company or organisation
an estimate of the size and breakdown of its 'carbon footprint'.
An emissions assessment provides the basis for further initiatives
such as public reporting, target setting and implementation
of mitigation activities, which can include forestry offset
schemes or investment in energy substitution projects. All
of our emissions assessments are consistent with current best
practice in greenhouse gas emissions reporting.
To date we have conducted emissions assessments for over
a hundred companies and organizations, with recent examples
including DHL, TetraPak UK, British American Tobacco, National
Express Group, Taylor Architects and the Royal Institute of
Bespoke emissions assessments of products
Greenhouse gas emissions are not only associated with companies
and organisations but also with the production and distribution
of products. We have the expertise to assess the emissions
associated with a whole range of products from cars and fuels
to paints, badges, t-shirts, wood products and building materials.
We have used our expertise to quantify the emissions associated
with the production and distribution of a number of products
including the Sadolin Wood Care range, the Tea Tree Oil range
of Jean Paul Mitchel Systems shampoos and the new Tree Tubes
from The CarbonNeutral Company.

Emissions included within the assessment
The scope of the CO2/greenhouse gas
assessment is determined by the objectives of the organisation

event, such as a conference, or a range of products and activities.
