The Net Carbon Footprint of This Business is Entirely Offset Using Internationally Approved Carbon Credits.

The Technical Part

The assessment methodology of our Greenhouse Gas Audits to establish the carbon footprint follows the reporting principles and guidelines provided by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol published by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Resources Institute (WBCSD/WRI Protocol). In line with the WBCSD/WRI Protocol, CO2balance uses the following procedure to undertake a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Assessment:

  • Establishment of the assessment boundaries (including the selection of: greenhouse gases, project boundaries and operational boundaries).
  • Collection of client data.
  • Evaluation of data quality and of client data sources.
  • Calculation of emissions using appropriate conversion factors.
  • Determination of suitable recommendations for future action.

Where appropriate our carbon footprinting and offset process follows the protocols of the international standards PAS2050 or PAS2060.

Extensions of the CarbonZero™ brand are applied such as CarbonZero™ Company, Publication, Distribution etc.
