Carbon footprint calculation

One of the goals of the ecological transition is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to carbon neutrality. This means reaching the point of capturing more GHGs than we emit. 

Calculating the carbon footprint of an activity is an essential tool for companies committed to sustainability to know where they stand and to be able to take appropriate measures to reduce their impact on the environment.

What is

Carbon Footprint?

The carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas (GHG, measured in mass of CO2 equivalent) emitted by an organisation (according to RD 163/2014) or product (according to ISO 14.067).

Its environmental impact can be measured according to recognised international standards, such as ISO 14064-1, PAS 2050 or GHG Protocol, among others. It is measured in mass of CO2 equivalent.

ISO 50001 - implementation - supervision and monitoring

ISO 50001 is designed to help organisations in all sectors by providing practical ways to reduce energy consumption through the implementation of an energy management system.

ISO 50001 is based on continual improvement, a management system model found in other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This model makes it easier for an organisation to integrate energy management into its overall efforts to improve its quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organisations to :

- develop a policy for more efficient energy use

- Establish goals and objectives to implement this policy

- Use data to better understand energy use problems and make decisions to solve them.

- Measure the results

- Review the effectiveness of the policy, and

- Continuously improve energy management.

Inspection of building
BREEAM sustainable certification

In a society that is increasingly aware of the need to undertake actions that reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in buildings, there are measures such as the BREEAM® sustainable certification that constitute an essential tool for those organizations that want to benefit from the positive aspects that it entails: economic savings, contribution to the corporate social responsibility plan and well-being of the building's users.

RD 56-2016 - energy audit
For many companies, the energy bill represents a major part of production costs, which is also subject to the volatility of energy prices. Reducing energy consumption is a financial issue, but it is also an environmental issue. Conducting an energy audit is essential to know the energy performance of a company, to know what possible improvements can be implemented and, where applicable, to comply with RD 56/2016.
