Carbon Counting is something that every business needs to get into the habit of doing. In the recent COP26 summit it was announced that all large firms in the UK must have a detailed plan to become low carbon by 2023, in line with the UK’s net zero 2050 plan. It’s likely this will become a requirement for most if not all firms in the UK in the near future.
In order to do this every business will need to count and then reduce their carbon emissions as part of a larger sustainability plan. Carbon Counting is now a legal requirement for large firms, and without properly tracking your Carbon output you’ll be unable to assess your environmental footprint.
You can stay ahead of the curb by getting into the habit of counting your carbon emissions now, you might be surprised where your carbon emissions come from.
