Our services include:
Full carbon accounting
We start by accurately measuring your footprint with a carbon report, 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 carbon 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.
Science-based targets and SBTi submissions
We have extensive experience working with clients to set science-based carbon reduction targets aligned with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi). We underpin these ambitious targets with detailed thinking and roadmaps based on practical solutions, modelling and options analysis.
Creating your net-zero carbon roadmap
Having completed your carbon audit, 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.
Decarbonising logistics and other key intervention points
Working alongside experts in your relevant teams, we can provide carbon modelling and propose decarbonising opportunities within your logistics network. This could include alternative technologies, 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.

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.
Calculating scope 3 emissions is a challenge but essential for any business serious about reducing its footprint. Bioregional’s data-driven yet people-focused approach meant the process was made simpler for us. We’re now better equipped to monitor our footprint, as well as understand what we need to change to have the biggest impact.Amy DeMarsac, Head of Investor Relations and Sustainability at Mitchells & Butlers
