The Zero GHG Process

A successful GHG reduction business strategy requires careful analysis and must form an integral part of your larger business objectives. Consider the following steps in developing your GHG reduction plan:

  • Define an environmental policy for your organisation, product or service.
  • Evaluate GHG emission sources. Your analysis should cover the entire supply chain from reception of starting materials to the transportation and delivery of your products.
  • Calculate carbon footprint. Once your GHG emission sources are identified your carbon footprint can be calculated by evaluating the impact of these emissions in equivalent metric tons of CO2 .
  • Set your GHG reduction objectives. Determine what portion of your footprint can be addressed through reduction of emissions at source and what portion will be offset through carbon credits.
  • Implement GHG reduction initiatives.
  • Offset balance to achieve your objectives or Zero GHG emissions.
Zero GHG Products and Events

As an alternative to approaching GHG emissions as a whole for your corporations, many businesses elect to focus on reducing the carbon footprint of one particular product line. This is particularly beneficial if there is a perceived advantage by the consumer for zero footprint products.

Zero GHG emissions events typically refer to conferences, concerts, or festivals whose GHG emissions due to the consumption of energy and travel have been offset to achieve a zero carbon footprint.

Offering Carbon Offsets to your Customers

The transportation sector is amongst the largest contributors to GHG emissions. It is unrealistic and economically unfeasible to envision that this sector can incur the burden of achieving a neutral carbon footprint without impact to their customers. An elegant way of engaging the environmentally conscious customer is by offering the opportunity to purchase offsets as an additional option at the time of sale.
