Bioregional has extensive experience in supporting a range of small businesses with full carbon accounting.

We understand that small businesses are increasingly being asked about environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics. You may supply other businesses that require data to calculate their own carbon footprint. You may have investors who need assurance that your company is aligning with ESG requirements. And consumers are increasingly aware of the importance of reducing the carbon impact of the goods and services they buy.

Small businesses can lack the time, resources, and knowledge to complete their own footprints. This is where our all-in-one carbon accounting toolkit comes in, giving you everything you need in a cost-effective package.

Unlike other carbon accountants, we’ll teach you how to measure your whole carbon footprint, including all scope 3 emissions, using a methodology developed by renowned expert Dr Mike Berners-Lee. Our toolkit offers online carbon accounting training, one-to-one support, and carbon footprint validation - and each session is available as an individual service.

As an impact-led social enterprise, we reinvest our profits to create change. Discover our most recent impact review.

Bioregional is a founding member of the Carbon Accounting Alliance - a coalition of software companies, consultancies, auditors and certifying bodies that have come together to collaborate on solving challenges faced by our industry, to share best practice and promote the development of robust standards.
