The UK has some of the most ambitious climate goals of any industrialised nation. Their effects are fast filtering down every supply chain, impacting on progressively smaller organisations. A raft of recent CSR/ESG legislation – much of it from Europe – places new obligations upon businesses to measure, report and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Even organisations who don’t directly fall within the scope of current regulations will almost certainly encounter them indirectly – maybe via a larger customer who is obliged to comply, or if participating in a tender for a public body (PPN 06/21). There is also increasing pressure from stakeholders, investors and customers for organisations to make a commitment to the environment and be seen to fulfil it. The problem is – most organisations either don’t know where to start, or else they’ve embarked upon a course of action which might prove to have been ill-advised.
Emissions reporting and mitigation has added yet another consideration to already complicated management decision-making processes. Navigating through overlapping and often conflicting concerns of price, security of supply, CSR/ESG compliance, stakeholder expectations and carbon reduction targets mean that every decision is now multi-faceted and can have unforeseen consequences.
My clients need someone to help them make sense of carbon reporting and reduction – what is vital, what is useful, and what might prove to be an expensive waste of time. After that – they want a guide to lead them on their carbon journey.
