What is Carbon Footprint?
Carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), released into the atmosphere as a result of human activities, such as burning fossil fuels for energy, transportation, industrial processes, and deforestation. It is often measured in metric tons of CO2 equivalents (CO2e) and serves as an indicator for the impact on climate change from an individual, organisation, or product. Reducing carbon footprints is crucial for our global society to mitigate the effects of climate change, as greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Managing and reducing carbon footprints is a key component of sustainability and environmental responsibility efforts worldwide. Businesses are no exception.
Where do AIS Come in?
As part of our Research & Analytics services, Our team of experienced consultants specialises in assisting businesses in understanding and managing their carbon emissions, with the ultimate goal of helping them become environmentally responsible and compliant with ISO standards. By understanding the carbon footprint of various sectors, products, and activities, companies can identify areas where emissions can be reduced, prioritise actions, and allocate resources effectively. Carbon footprint analyses can also help businesses and individuals make informed choices about their consumption patterns, energy use, and transportation options in line with the goals of the EU Green Deal.
With the increasing global concern about climate change and the need for businesses to operate sustainably, managing carbon emissions has become a critical aspect of corporate responsibility. AIS Environment offers tailored consultancy services to help businesses accurately assess, manage, and reduce their carbon footprint, while aligning with international standards such as ISO 14001.
We use a systematic approach that starts with a comprehensive assessment of a business's present carbon emissions. Our consultants conduct a detailed review of the business operations, processes, and energy consumption to identify the key sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We use internationally recognised protocols and methodologies, such as the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the ISO 14064 standard, to ensure accurate and reliable calculations of emissions.
Once the carbon emissions have been identified, our consultants work closely with businesses to develop a customized plan to reduce their carbon footprint. This plan includes setting measurable strategies and targets to mitigate emissions, such as improving energy efficiency, adopting renewable energy sources, optimising transportation, and implementing waste management strategies. Our consultants also provide guidance on developing a carbon offsetting program to help businesses offset their remaining emissions through certified carbon offset projects.
Throughout the consultancy process, AIS Environment provides regular monitoring and reporting to track progress towards carbon reduction goals. We accurately measure and report on the performance of the implemented strategies, and wherever necessary. Our consultants also conduct periodic audits to ensure ongoing compliance with ISO standards and other relevant regulations. We can also carry out training sessions with employee to guide them in following the established low-carbon procedures. This includes training on energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies, sustainable transportation, waste management, and others. We can help companies to create a more informed and environmentally conscious workforce that actively participates in the transition towards a low-carbon and sustainable future.
AIS Environment takes a holistic approach to carbon footprint consultancy, considering the unique needs and goals of each business. We work closely with our clients to provide practical and cost-effective solutions that not only reduce their environmental impact but also contribute to long-term business sustainability. Our team of consultants brings a wealth of experience and expertise in carbon management and sustainability, ensuring that our clients receive the highest level of service and guidance throughout the entire process.
