MEASURE YOUR BUSINESS CARBON FOOTPRINT
CARBON REDUCTION ASSESSMENT
Our business carbon assessments provide a comprehensive review of your organisation's carbon emissions and offer practical solutions to help you reduce your environmental impact, cut costs, and ultimately reach net zero.
UNDERSTANDING A CARBON REDUCTION ASSESSMENT
- Helping you achieve carbon neutrality and net zero. Firstly, a baseline will be calculated. This will help us know how many emissions you produce.
- The emissions are broken down into three main scopes; Scope one is your company's direct emissions (e.g. energy from company buildings), Scope two is your company's indirect emissions (e.g, purchased electricity), and Scope three is upstream and downstream activities (e.g. transportation and distribution).
- To receive official verification, following PAS 2060 then it is essential to calculate all 15 chapters of scope three to become net zero.
NOT YOUR TYPICAL CARBON CALCULATORS
A Carbon Assessment can provide more value to a business than just proof that steps have been taken to review and reduce carbon and other emissions. With proof of having assessed and reduced and offset carbon usage verified by Tunley Environmental® as a third party, your business can work towards B-Corp status, bid on government contracts and improve efficiency and cost within the business.
Our team of PhD level scientists work with your business to go beyond crunching the numbers to provide you with clear and comprehensive detail about exactly what your Carbon Emissions are and how to adhere to internationally recognised standards.
ELIMINATING GREENWASHING CLAIMS
People are becoming more and more conscious of Greenwashing
Many businesses self assess their carbon emissions, however this does not provide independent verification or support in carbon reduction planning. Tunley Environmental are able to provide your organisation with a quantified pathway to achieve Net Zero Carbon. Carbon Calculators can tell you what you carbon emissions are, but our Carbon Reduction Assessments tell you what you can do to reduce and offset them, with the benefit of full, ongoing support along the way.

NET ZERO CARBON FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Our carbon reduction solutions also include Carbon Offsetting, an action or activity that acts as a carbon sink, removing carbon from the atmosphere and allowing organisations to further contribute to achieving a Net Zero Carbon world. This results in reducing carbon emissions and offsetting the remainder in Net Zero Carbon emissions.
Our Carbon Reduction Assessment also presents you with a variety of compelling ways you can communicate your progress to your stakeholders, without unnecessary jargon. To summarise, our Carbon Assessments are:
We measure the sum of all greenhouse gases emitted by the activities of an organisation.
We set out realistic actions and goals for carbon reduction. We also provide the overall resulting reduction in greenhouse gases that these actions would deliver.
We provide clear, actionable steps to offset your existing carbon footprint.
EXPERT IN ALL THREE SCOPES
Years of Engineering Process Improvement experience has shown us that you can only manage the carbon that you measure. Setting a baseline, using accurate calculations that are peer-reviewed by a team of experts, followed by accurate reporting, lets us help you identify areas of emissions, quantify the size of the problem, and set solution-focused targets and processes for carbon reduction.
Most Carbon reporting divides your Carbon Emissions into 3 Scopes
However, this simple categorisation of emissions doesn’t go beyond quantification and identifying what areas are responsible for them.
For any environmentally responsible organisation it is vital that their Carbon Reduction efforts start with measurement, but then immediately move onto undertaking the actionable next steps to deliver a reduction in carbon emissions. Our Carbon Reduction Assessment provides you with the roadmap to do this. We will guide you through the full process, drawing on experience.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A Carbon Reduction Assessment, also referred to as a carbon footprint assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of an organisation’s or individual’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The primary goal is to quantify the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases produced as a result of activities, processes, and or products. Tunley Environmental will carry out this assessment with you, providing your organisation with further reduction initiatives to implement, such as a Roadmap to Net Zero.
A carbon reduction assessment is a valuable tool for understanding and managing the environmental impact of business activities. It offers a range of benefits, from mitigating climate change and saving costs, to improving competitiveness and building a positive reputation. You can read more about the benefits in our insight: The Benefits of Conducting a Carbon Assessment for Business.
A Carbon Reduction Assessment can be beneficial for various reasons, depending on whether you are an individual, a business, or organisation. Some key reasons why you may conduct a Carbon Reduction Assessment are: climate change mitigation, regulatory compliance, cost savings, competitive advantage, risk management, stakeholder expectations, or personal responsibility.
The duration of the assessment can vary widely depending on several factors, including complexity of the assessment, the size and nature of the entity being assessed, the availability of data, and the resources allocated to the assessment process. It can take from days to months to carry out the assessment, depending on the factors listed and whether it is for an individual, business, or organisation.
