As more and more companies release their first Streamlined Energy and Carbon reports, many are using this new compliance process to examine their impact on the planet and how they might reduce their Carbon Footprint, moving towards Carbon Neutrality and beyond. This can be due to internal stakeholder pressure, an understanding that Carbon Neutrality is a wise commercial decision or because simply due to increasing legal and statutory demands
What are the advantages of going Carbon Neutral?
– Creating an environmental policy provides the perfect opportunity to review if your day-to-day activities are both environmentally responsible and meet legal requirements
– It keeps employees informed of their environmental roles and responsibilities
– It saves money due to reduced consumption and waste and by improving the efficiency of your processes
– Demonstrating a commitment to managing your environmental impact will help improve your reputation with clients and other stakeholders in an ever more “green aware” environment
Companies merely wishing to be listed as “Carbon Neutral” could, of course, simply look towards nominal energy reductions and selected offsetting projects. Clients who wish to go beyond this however and ensure that their green credentials stand up, even under close scrutiny, are turning to Enistic’s staged Path to Net Zero.
What Enistic can do to help you?
At Enistic we provide a full energy overview to establish where and how energy can be saved to first reduce your company’s emissions. We then offer bespoke Net Zero plans set over 1, 3, and 5 years that are science-based and proven to work. These include finding offset projects that suit you and which have proven green value.
In effect we provide a fully managed process, leaving you to thrash out what your priorities are and simply see them achieved.
Enistic Net Zero can be summarised as tackling 7 specific areas:
- Outline clear objectives and a timeline
- Measure and manage your emissions data
- Make plans for the long-term impact and benefits
- Always work to a best-practice standard
- Establish reductions you can manage prior to offsetting
- Ensure that your offset projects meet detailed scrutiny
- Be transparent in your reporting
This carefully managed approach based on agreed targets, timescales and budgets not only allows clients the confidence that they control the process and results, but also that they have a proven, managed, logical process to follow and ways to maximise internal and external stakeholder buy-in.
