Once we have received your data, we do the number crunching for you, ensuring that the calculation complies with the GHG protocol standard. We provide a comprehensive, but easy to read report that provides clarity on exactly where your emissions and contributions have come from.
For each of your activities we calculate the carbon impact by multiplying the amount of the activity done during the year (the "activity data") by the carbon intensity of that activity (the "emissions factor").
To calculate your carbon footprint, it is then simply a case of adding up the carbon impacts of all the activities we identified.
Your carbon report is broken down into sections, to make it digestible and is presented in a mix of tabular and graphical data to make it easier to understand.
We give you a detailed breakdown of your emissions by activity, so that you can make informed decisions about where to target and how to prioritise reduction activities.
Of course you can, but make sure you know what your online calculator does. The free ones usually only account for a few categories of activity and can miss up to 80% of your full carbon footprint - the better online calculators do cover most of the categories but you're on your own. By joining Go Climate Positive you will get an independent assessment of your full carbon footprint, help to set meaningful reduction targets and a certificate that gives your customers confidence that you are committed to reducing it, most importantly you will get a dedicated Carbon Coach to guide you through every step of the journey.See all of the emissions categories we assess.
