As a large industry or commercial outlet, there are many actions that can be taken within your business to start to reduce your company’s impact on climate change. Many of these actions not only make environmental sense but also economic sense, saving your business money in the long run. Reducing your emissions and therefore your impact on climate change needs to be approached in a structured organised way much like the approach that is needed for any other major issue in business. Doing so in this way is known as carbon management.

Carbon Management

Carbon Management is akin to most other management systems that currently exist in businesses and organisations and will therefore fit comfortably with existing structures in business e.g. ISO 14000. It consists of five main steps:

  • Understanding Emission

  • Define Purpose

  • Identify Opportunities

  • Develop Action Programme

  • Monitor Progress
