Tools to support carbon reporting become more sophisticated

Many CSR teams spend at least 50% of their time gathering data and analysing it for use in different reports.

Whilst the old adage ‘you can’t manage what you don’t measure’ rings true, you also can’t manage what you don’t have time to manage.

Many organisations have been grappling with carbon reporting for a number of years: now the focus is gradually moving off simply collecting data and onto benchmarking against the marketplace and using the data to good effect internally.

One tool we like is PwC’s carbon emissions report example. It was developed to help companies determine what to report on and how to present it.

The example is based on a fictitious UK listed technology company, ‘Typico plc’, producing consumer durables and IT products with operations in Asia, the UK and the US. It illustrates how to report the strategy, targets, performance and benchmarking of the companies work to reduce its impact on, and adapt to, climate change.

We have integrated benchmarking principles into our carbon calculator. As well as providing you with an auditable carbon footprint measurement, it also allows you to enter information about company size and turnover, in order to more adequately asses your progress year on year – and how you are doing compared to other organisations in your sector.

The carbon footprinting calculator is free, and has been accredited by the UK Government Quality Assurance Scheme, so please get in touch if you’d like a copy.
