Corporate Carbon Footprint

The corporate carbon footprint can be defined as the direct and indirect greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions from the organization’s activities. In other words, the carbon footprint represents the GHG inventory of the organization. Preparing a GHG inventory consists of establishing the profile of the organization’s main GHG sources. Actually, the GHG inventory is often the starting point to engage a GHG reduction process including developing reduction targets, a strategic action plan and monitoring progress. It will then allow to: 

  • Identify potential for GHG reduction into the production line
  • Identify opportunities to reduce energy costs and, where possible, improve the energy efficiency of facilities
  • Benefit from government financing programs in GHG management field

Enviro-access prepares GHG inventories using internationally recognized protocols such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, which is in line with the international standard ISO 14064-1.

Product and Service Carbon Footprint

Establishing a product carbon footprint starts with the quantification of all GHG emissions associated with the different steps in the product’s life cycle, from the raw material extraction to the transport, the pre-production, the production, the distribution, the use and the end-of-life management of the product. Undertaking today your product carbon footprint will certainly bring you a competitive advantage by allowing you to get ready to cope with the constantly growing environmental concerns of your customers.
