  • Objectives To deliver a basic carbon footprint for an organisation/site To provide an approach that meets the needs of the mass market of smaller and less advanced companies To provide practical guidance on key issues (e.g. emissions factors) To ensure footprinting data is presented in a credible, consistent format To include all GHGs – not just CO2 from fuel consumption To act as a stepping stone towards accepted standards and methodologies, e.g. GHG Protocol, ISO14064
