Many companies already record their greenhouse gas emissions for a variety of reasons. The carbon footprint is used in sustainability reports, is part of voluntary climate protection programmes or is mandatory to participate in emissions trading. Companies recognise the increasing pressure from politics and society to operate sustainably and use the Carbon Footprint to be able to transparently communicate their impact on climate change. At the same time, carbon footprinting enables the identification of cost-effective CO2 reduction opportunities and the management of greenhouse gas risks.
The Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) according to ISO 14064 is divided into three scopes. Scope 1 takes into account direct emissions from the company's vehicles and facilities. This means that, for example, no rented or leased vehicles are included here (only in Scope 3). Scope 2 includes indirect emissions from imported energy, i.e. primarily electricity. In Scope 3, all other indirect emissions are taken into account. Here, a materiality analysis is carried out to identify the main emission sources.
Based on the calculated values of a carbon footprint, compensation projects can be supported through the purchase of so-called CO2 certificates. In this way, a contribution can be made to the climate goals. We would be happy to advise you on this topic.
