After helping B&Q develop a pioneering and comprehensive sustainability strategy in 2007, we’ve supported it to slash its carbon footprint by 41% and dramatically cut costs
Carbon and energy management
We have extensive carbon and energy management experience in helping businesses of all sizes, including B&Q, to measure their carbon footprints – and make a big dent in them. We have also helped partners set carbon targets and energy strategies based on the need to achieve a 1.5ºC world.
Calculating your carbon footprint
We start by accurately measuring your footprint, including calculating Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. This also acts as a ‘gap analysis’ – we find what data is missing and propose a plan for filling in these gaps.
Our aim is to help improve your reporting over time in a series of manageable steps and ensure it’s compliant with relevant legislation and reporting frameworks. Frameworks include the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, ISO 14064, the Science-based Targets initiative and the Carbon Disclosure Project. We can also provide support with wider sustainability reporting beyond carbon.
Creating an energy strategy for your property portfolio
Having calculated your current carbon footprint, we can help develop a property energy and carbon strategy with short and long-term targets. We use spreadsheet-based modelling and work with your property team to understand:
- What has been achieved so far
- What is possible, in line with your business needs.
Our energy experts can then propose the best solutions for your business including energy efficiency opportunities, green energy procurement and renewables.
Greening logistics and other key intervention points
Working alongside experts in your relevant teams, we can provide carbon modelling and propose carbon-saving opportunities within your logistics network. This could include alternative technologies and fuels and EVs. We keep you up to speed on trends in logistics sustainability.
We also have experience with reviewing and proposing solutions for other main areas of your carbon footprint including business travel, waste and upstream and downstream impacts eg customer energy use.
