All businesses should be considering how to best manage their carbon (or Greenhouse Gas) emissions. Understanding your carbon footprint and energy consumption patterns is the first step. Other potential benefits to knowing your carbon footprint and employing strategies for reduced carbon intensity are:
1 Environmental Impact Assessment
2 Reducing waste production and energy usage and hence saving money
3 Enhancing your reputation with clients and stakeholders by meeting society’s growing expectations in relation to climate change
4 Attracting, motivating and retaining staff by satisfying the strong demand evident within mostorganizations to behave in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
