Measure

We can contract with independent emissions assessment providers that are experts in businesses of your type, size and location. They can identify what data needs collecting, support you in collecting data from the business, and then calculate your total emissions.

The CarbonNeutral Protocol clearly identifies the data required for each type of carbon neutral action and all our assessment partners are highly experienced in measuring footprints to comply with the requirements of the Protocol.

Third-party assessment

If required, we can contract with independent third-party emissions assessment providers that are experts in businesses of your type, size and location. These include Anthesis, Ecometrica, Quantis and RSK.

Third-party assessment

What data you will need

Each CarbonNeutral® certification requires different emissions to be calculated.

For a CarbonNeutral® company certification the data needed includes things like fuel consumption on site and for company-owned vehicles, purchased energy, waste and business travel.

The assessment partner will explain the full set of data that should be included, and what should be excluded. Where data isn’t available they will also work with you to produce conservative estimates and assumptions.

What data you will need

The process

We will work with you to select the best assessment partner based on your location, number of employees, the level of support needed, and any other considerations.

A kick-off call will begin the process by reviewing the scope of the assessment, what data is needed, agreeing the timeline and answering any questions.

While collecting data, support is available to you through both the Natural Capital Partners' team and your assessment partner.

Once your data has been gathered the assessment partner will calculate the footprint and provide you with a Greenhouse Gas Assessment Report, which underpins your CarbonNeutral® certification.
