Many organizations are concerned about their contribution to climate change. Taking responsibility for emissions by becoming carbon neutral demonstrates your commitment to halting the climate emergency, and your funders, advocates, and constituents will take notice.
Carbon neutrality requires measuring your carbon footprint, reducing emissions as much as possible, and offsetting the rest.
Your organization can be carbon neutral, and we will help you navigate the six-step process:
We are experts in all areas of carbon auditing and are ready to help your organization calculate its carbon footprint, as well as recommend ways to reduce it. Each organization is unique, so our advice is tailor-made to suit you and your goals.
We offer a free initial consultation meeting to discuss the scope of the project. We will then ask you to supply information on energy consumption and travel, as well as accounts data covering other areas of activity – for example, postage and shipping, marketing, office equipment, and hotel stays.

We analyze this data to provide an organizational carbon footprint for an agreed base year, enabling you to measure progress in reducing carbon emissions year on year, along with recommendations on how to reduce your carbon footprint. Our carbon footprint audit service for organizations complies with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the ISO 14064 standard.
Once you know your carbon footprint, you can take steps to reduce it. If you need technical advice on how to achieve energy savings in your workplace, we can introduce you to a trusted partner organization to help.
We can also provide help and guidance on developing and embedding an environmental policy and action plan into the DNA of your organization through advising and practical workshops.
You may choose to offset your organization’s carbon footprint through our projects. We provide stories, images, and more information about our projects to help you communicate effectively with your partners.
Consultancy work is charged on an hourly rate plus expenses.
