An increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and therefore in carbon footprint, is the primary event associated with climate change that has led to global warming. It has gained significant international attention due to their worldwide on human beings, natural resources and economic conditions.
Many government agencies and corporate bodies are therefore taking the necessary initiatives to reduce their GHG emissions. The key to any such initiative is to firstly understand what their baseline carbon footprint is.
Carbon Footprint Measurement & Management
Measuring and managing the carbon footprint is a risk management strategy and a tool for identifying opportunities to improve business operations. In addition, stakeholders such as government agencies, corporate and regulatory bodies and reporting agencies are increasingly requesting for a more accurate greenhouse gas (GHG) impact information.
Why carbon footprint?
Carbon footprint is the total set of GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organisation, event or product. It is the measure of the environmental impact of a particular individual lifestyle or organization’s operation. It is usually expressed in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent CO2-eq., which accounts for the different global warming effects of greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide itself.
It will present a complete picture of GHG emissions by source. This will help to monitor the emissions over time to track progress and help identify emission hot spots to focus on emission and energy reduction initiatives.
- Tangible impacts – The carbon footprint assessment is to put in place a level of emissions which creates a baseline and measures to reduce the greenhouse gas emitted.
- Intangible impacts – Results obtained will help organization in making informed decision in adopting the most practical and cost effective approach in greenhouse gas management.

How We Can Help
Effective Carbon Footprint measurement & reporting
We believe that all companies should measure their carbon impact and report their performance. It is an essential part of meeting stakeholder expectations for action on climate change, provides data to identify reduction opportunities, and establishes a baseline against which to monitor change.
We have vast experience to conduct organizational carbon footprint study especially for the power sector.
