Before calculating your corporate carbon footprint, we first define the project goal. This involves finding answers to the following questions: what are the exact motivations for preparing the CO₂ balance sheet and which requirements must be taken into account?
Definition of the accounting scope
The system boundaries and therefore the accounting scope are defined as soon as the initial situation has been established. This involves determining the temporal, operational and organisational scope of the balance sheet. To do this, we work with you to define the fiscal year, the business activities and the companies or locations for which the CCF will be prepared. The balance sheet can be drafted for your entire company or initially for individual companies or locations.
Data collection and calculation
Data collection begins once the system boundaries have been defined. We provide a data collection screen that requests all necessary data for this purpose. The previously defined emission sources are recorded according to Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3. Our experts are available to advise you on the data collection process. We also check the plausibility of your data, as it is used as the basis for calculating your greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the GHG Protocol.
Evaluation and results report
When data collection is complete, we use emission factors from public and licensed emission databases to start the evaluation and convert the data into CO₂ equivalents. You receive the detailed results of your CO₂ balance sheet in the emissions report.
Finally, we present you with the results, which provide all the relevant information you need to initiate appropriate measures for CO₂ reduction and offsetting. We would also be delighted to offer advice on additional measures.
