Unlike an energy audit (which focuses specifically on identifying opportunities for emission reduction) undertaking a carbon assessment involves measuring and benchmarking an organisation’s greenhouse gas emissions for a specific reporting period.
Business goals that may be served by such a process include:
- Mandatory or voluntary reporting requirements
- Managing greenhouse gas risks associated with anticipated future constraints (e.g. regulation, emissions reduction schemes etc)
- Participation in greenhouse gas markets (e.g. internal or external cap and trade schemes)
Our reports are compiled following the internationally accepted and recognised methodology and standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (produced by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development).
We use the most up-to-date National Greenhouse Accounts (NGA) Factors as released by the Federal Department of Climate Change, as well as some specific emissions factors developed by other reputable Australian sources.
We work in close consultation with our clients to establish the organisational and operational boundary for each project.
As necessary, we draw upon our significant expertise within the energy efficiency industry, highlighting areas of opportunity for specific attention and action in the future.
