Climate change is the most challenging issue our society faces. The way we address it now will have enduring effects for generations to come.All governments in the world are setting ambitious, yet necessary, targets to slash Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), as early as 2030.
Every single organisation will need to understand where its GHG are generated, define a plan to reduce these and, if necessary, compensate the residual GHG.
To avoid greenwashing and ensure a levelled playing field, some standards have been developed.
These provide guidance on:
- how to do calculate the carbon footprint, both at organisational and product level;
- how to set relevant reduction targets;
- how to monitor progress;
- how to report on your carbon footprint and achievements.
