The Go Climate Positive process

We work on an annual cycle, that goes like this:


Calculate

We calculate your carbon footprint, including all the activities your business does that emit greenhouse gases, across 22 categories of activity.


Reduce

We help you to set sensible targets to reduce your footprint, that are in line with the latest scientific thinking on climate change, and to create a practical action plan to get there.


Offset

If you want to go Carbon Neutral, we help you offset what you can’t yet reduce by buying and retiring carbon credits on your behalf. We only use independently verified credits.


Certificate

We issue your badge for the year and create your certification page so that you can show people that your commitment is real.


Support

We support you through the year, encouraging you to stay on track, giving tips and advice and putting you in touch with other members on the same journey.


Go Positive

You Go Positive by helping others to reduce their footprint through:

  • Reusing or recycling materials and products
  • Developing and selling low-carbon products
  • Helping suppliers or customers to reduce their emissions
  • Introducing other businesses to the community

Then we do it again next year…

          We do it properly...

          18 categories of emissions

          If we are going to take this seriously we need to get a true and clear picture of where we are now.

          So, each year we calculate your carbon footprint, including all the activities your business does that emit greenhouse gases, across 18 categories of activity. We help you gather the right data to get a full understanding of all your climate impact, then we give you a comprehensive report according to the requirements of the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard.

          Getting the full picture is only the first step. Ultimately we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, but how do you know how much to reduce them by to really have an impact?

          We help you set science-based targets to reduce your emissions. This means that these targets are in line with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's guidance, to limit global warming to 1.5°C



          The goal is to reduce our emissions to zero. However in the real world it's not possible to do this immediately, so we help you offset what you cannot reduce by buying and retiring carbon credits on your behalf.

          Not all offsets are created equal so we only use credits that have been independently verified by the Gold Standard, so you can be confident that your offsetting really is effective. 


          How much does it cost?

          We are all about openness and honesty, so our membership fees are simple and transparent too.

          Our fixed fee depends on the size and complexity of your business and gives you membership and access to all member benefits for a year, and you can choose to pay annually or monthly, whichever is most convenient for you. The only extra is the cost of carbon credits for offsetting, if you choose to go Carbon Neutral, which we won’t know until we’ve calculated your footprint.


          All prices will have 20% VAT added
