Recording, analyzing and reducing companies’ CO2 emissions

Whitepaper: How to calculate a company’s carbon footprint

Most companies have already set themselves ambitious sustainability targets. However, consumers and new regulations continue to crank up the pressure on companies to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Check out our whitepaper to discover how companies can calculate and reduce their carbon footprint.

The first step for companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint is to identify the sources of their emissions. Ultimately, companies cannot define or achieve realistic sustainability targets without a transparent overview of their emissions. A particular challenge in this context is calculating indirect emissions covered by Scope 3 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. This includes all emissions resulting from a company’s value chain – i.e. the emissions produced by its customers, suppliers and business partners.

In our whitepaper, we explain the different types of emissions relevant to calculating a company’s carbon footprint. We also outline the software solutions capable of processing and analyzing large quantities of data – and detail the experience of German football team 1. FC Nürnberg in calculating its carbon footprint.
