Carbon Reduce Programme

Legal considerations aside, you want to know that all your suppliers work to the same high environmental and working standards as you do.

The UK’s only Accredited Greenhouse Gas Certification Scheme

With environmental concerns climbing the agenda for all kinds of legislative bodies, companies need a way of showing the world that they work sustainably. The Carbon Reduce scheme, (formally CEMARS) certification is the perfect way to do it – and we can help achieve this globally recognised standard. Last summer the UK government announced it’s plans to simplify energy and carbon reporting with the new Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR) framework. The previous CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme will end in April 2019 as the government moves towards helping companies to improve energy productivity by 20% by 2030.

Doing good is good business

Reducing carbon emissions offers significant benefits for your business, for your customers, and for our collective future. We have been assisting clients to Measure, Manage and Report their Carbon Footprint with the utmost confidence and drive business efficiency through carbon reduction savings in operational cost and performance for over 12 years.  For some of our clients, these savings are in the millions of pounds per annum.

Certification Programmes

We offer a whole solution. We help you identify what data you need to measure your greenhouse gas inventory. Our tools and resources support you to set real and achievable goals to manage your emissions. We then arrange an independent audit to verify your result is accurate and complete. You can optionally choose from a selection of carbon credits to mitigate your emissions. After your hard work you will receive globally recognised certification logos to help you market your achievements. The annual cycle sustains a journey of continual reduction.

5 key steps to achieving certification

Throughout the process, you will have access to our software, tools and templates, which will help identify what data you will need to gather, calculate your emissions inventory and prepare reports for verification and public disclosure.

We operate under licence to Toitū Envirocare Limited, an ISO 14065 accredited certification body, which retains the authority and responsibility for the Carbon Reduce certification decisions. Information about our impartiality statement and feedback procedures is available here.

1. Measure

Measuring your greenhouse gas emissions helps you to understand and strategically manage those emissions. We provide the tools to help measure all emissions under ISO 14064-1 including vehicles, business travel, fuel and electricity, paper, and waste.

2. Manage

Manage and reduce greenhouse emissions at source. Managing the emissions of your company, products and services will become increasingly important to both the planet and your profits. We offer resources and templates to guide you through certification.

3. Verify

Verify your inventory. Our qualified independent Auditors verify your inventory is in accordance with International standards like ISO 14064-1, ISO 10467, or PAS 2050.

4. Mitigate

Mitigate your carbon footprint (optional). Offset unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions to become carbon neutral. Carbon credits allows individuals, organisations and communities to balance the scales on the path to reduction.

5. Market

Showcase your achievements against ISO 14064-1 and PAS 2050 certification.
