You may or may not be worried about carbon emissions reporting right now, depending on how strong greenhouse gas emissions regulations are in your country. But one thing is for sure: laws are evolving and becoming more restrictive. And sooner or later energy managers will need to understand how to report carbon emissions properly. Good news – this is exactly what you’ll learn in our free online training.
How to Automate Carbon Emissions Reporting
A carbon footprint is defined as the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by human activity. Carbon footprints can be calculated for individuals, events, products or organisations.
Carbon footprinting is a concrete way to measure human impact on environment. The calculation methodology is based on norms like ISO 14064, PAS 2050 or the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP). As a result, you get a value on C02 mass.
The average Briton emits around 10 tonnes of carbon per year, but that’s far above the sustainable annual quota for the global population: two tonnes each. Try calculating your personal carbon footprint below to see where you fall:
For ESCO clients, identifying major emission sources can mean savings opportunities in the future. As energy manager, you are probably aware that your work has an impact on the carbon footprint of your customers in terms of cost savings and corporate social responsibility.
In more restrictive markets, carbon emissions reporting is mandatory, and a source of potential legal problems (and fines). If you work in the United Kingdom or Germany, for instance, you’re probably forced to submit periodic carbon emission reports. As regulations in more and more countries are evolving in this direction, energy managers are likely to start feeling:
- The urgency of understanding greenhouse gas regulations
- The need to create compelling and value-driven carbon reports
- The desire to use tools that automate the process for you
