Carbon accounting for SMEs
Bioregional has extensive experience in supporting a range of SMEs with full carbon accounting.
We understand the pressures that SMEs face. We develop practical and workable solutions that will help you protect and futureproof your business.
Unlike other carbon accountants, we measure your whole carbon footprint, using a methodology developed by renowned expert Dr Mike Berners-Lee. Our tailored SME offer covers online carbon accounting training, one-to-one support, and carbon footprint verification - and each is available as an individual service.
As a charity, we reinvest our profits to create change. Discover our most recent impact review.
Online carbon accounting training
The average SME carbon footprint costs £10,000. Bioregional offers a significantly more cost-effective way for you to achieve a full carbon footprint for your organisation.
We offer two online training sessions with one of our experienced carbon accounting professionals.
Instructor-led and small class sizes:
We won’t leave you to fend for yourselves with a recording and slide show - you can send up to two colleagues to our instructor-led courses and ask questions specific to your business throughout.
Templates for data collection:
You will be provided with templates to help with all your data collection needs.
By the end of the training, you will be confident in collecting the data required to calculate your organisation’s full scope 1, 2, and 3 carbon footprint in line with international best practice – the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
Price: £1,670 +VAT
(Includes access to online tool, worth £500)
As you collect and upload your footprint data you can call on our experts for optional support, which is charged at an hourly rate. This could be in the form of email requests or calls. A typical business may need seven hours of support for the entirety of the footprint.
Price: £110/hr +VAT
Carbon footprint verification
We don't offer third-party auditing services as these are not required for scope 3 emissions reporting. However, having your footprint quality checked and verified by a respected carbon accounting consultancy adds credibility to your results and prevents reporting errors, giving you the confidence that your carbon footprint is accurate.
We will review:
- your report downloaded from Compare Your Footprint,
- any additional calculations made that were not on the online tool,
- the data collection files used by your company.
We will then review and query any issues in up to three rounds of feedback. Verification must be booked at least six weeks in advance.
Price: £1,500 +VAT
