    Practice profile
  • 7. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Requirement for standards in the industry Codes and Standards
    • Faithful+Gould experience includes:
    • ISO TC 59/SC14 on Service Life Planning – we provide Working Group convenor and national experts
    • EU project “Life cycle costing as a contribution to sustainable construction” – members of European steering group
    • UK Industry Working Group on Life Cycle Costing – Standardised Method – we provide co-chair and experts
    • National and international R&D projects and networks
      • Innova Standards Network
      • SUE-MOT – sustainability tools and approaches
      • UK GBC – Measurement and reporting taskforce
  • 8. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Requirement for standards in the industry Codes and Standards
    • Standards allow
    • Consistency across the board
    • Common rules and assumptions
    • Allows comparison / benchmarking
    • Protect consultants against PI claims
  • 9. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Requirement for standards in the industry Codes and Standards
    • Lessons learned from or work on standards:
    • Achieving consensus is the best way to get buy-in and adoption of new methods but this can be challenging- especially when multiple countries are involved.
    • Different sectors, countries, industries and organisations always assume that their way is “normal”
    • Terms and definitions are key to effective communication
    • UK ‘centric’
    • It always takes longer than you expect!
  • 10. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Requirement for standards in the industry Codes and Standards
    • ISO 14064-2:2006
    • Aims to inject credibility and assurance to GHG emissions reports and claims made in regard to reductions or removal of GHGs.
    • Not aligned with any particular scheme,
    • Can be used to validate organizations participating in a number of trading, project or voluntary emissions reduction mechanisms.
    • The standards may also be applied to all GHG types and are not limited to CO 2 .
  • 11. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Specific Issues for Large Property Portfolios
    • Boundaries- Should boundary be the same for each site for comparison and benchmarking across the portfolio or should it take account of specific emissions from a site that do not occur elsewhere.
    • CO 2 emissions only or emissions from other Greenhouse Gases?
    • Should local emission factors be applied (e.g. purchased electricity) or a national / international factor used (particularly if the local factor is hard to acquire).
    • Harmonisation of emissions from transport may be difficult because of different measuring techniques and infrastructures.
  • 12. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case study 1: A Large Bank, UK Premises only The Bank
    • Global operation in over 50 countries
    • UK retail banking business employs 30,000+ staff
    • Environmental Policy of 20% reduction in energy usage from 2006 to 2010
    • Our commission grew from energy management to carbon management.
  • 13. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios 1. Getting started 2. Carbon Management Assessment “Where are we now?” 3. Develop Strategic Objectives “Where do we want to be?” 4. Carbon Management Plan (CMP) “How do we get there?” 5. Implementation “ Let’s do it!”

    Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case study 1: A Large Bank, UK Premises only The Bank- The Framework we used
  • 14. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case study 1: A Large Bank, UK Premises only Conceptual Boundary
    • Direct CO 2 emissions from fossil fuel consumption for heating
    • Indirect CO 2 emissions from electricity for heat pumps, electric heaters, lighting and ICT .
    • Transport emissions excluded at this stage but are likely to be included at a later stage
  • 15. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 1: A Large Bank, UK Premises only Measurement and mitigation
    • ArT Atkins remote technology
    • Automated Meter Reading provides consumption and emissions profiles
    • reporting for individual sites and the whole portfolio
    • trend reports identify poorly performing assets
    • baselines developed for whole portfolio, remediation applied for individual sites
    • provides data for individual project assessments, e.g. air conditioning strategies
  • 16. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 1: A Large Bank, UK Premises only Outcomes
    • Installed at 144 sites to date
    • Savings to date of 1,185 tonnes CO 2 (18 months)
  • 17. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 2: A Global PR Company The Company
    • The Company is one of the largest public relations firms in the world
    • Services ranging from public relations to marketing to reputation management.
    • 52 Offices to be assessed located on 6 continents 21 countries.
    • Recognise that carbon management provides an opportunity to improve carbon footprint
    • Have identified a goal of measuring global emissions which will allow the design of an appropriate carbon management programme.
    • The CEO supports investment in measuring and reducing the Carbon Footprint.
    • CSR probably main driver
  • 18. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 2: A Global PR Company Specific Issues
    • Baseline emissions required for each office according to local CO 2 conversion factors
    • Single assessment boundary for all locations
    • Understanding of local factors and assumptions
    • Need to normalise outputs to allow for benchmarking
    • Single data collection format
    • Global and local recommendations required for reducing Carbon footprint
  • 19. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 2: A Global PR firm The Assessment Boundary Assessment Boundary agreed with the Company
  • 20. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios Case Study 2: A Global PR Company Specific Issues
    • Information gathering will ask for local CO 2 emissions factors for electricity. If these are not available data from the GHG Protocol tools will be used
    • Business Travel and Commuting emissions based on GHG Protocol emissions factors for kilometres travelled for various classes of transport
    • Waste data –
      • landfill, incineration, recycling
    • Because information is gathered via questionnaire the data will not be as good quality ‘real time’ etc
  • 21. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios case study 3: Atkins Group Carbon Manual Involvement in Carbon services

    • to provide sound advice and a framework methodology for current and future practitioners of carbon quantification (footprinting) and management services; and
    • to illustrate the applications of carbon quantification within Atkins and Faithful+Gould projects
    • To raise awareness and promote understanding of the subject;
    • as a signposting document;
  • 27. Carbon Counting for Large property portfolios case study 3: atkins Group Carbon Manual Principles and considerations
    • carbon emissions as a result of the behaviour of private individuals
    • carbon emissions as a result of the behaviour of corporate entities
    • direct emissions (scope 1)
    • indirect emissions from energy (scope 2)
    • other indirect emissions (scope 3)
    • embodied energy and embodied carbon
    • conceptual boundaries
    • other greenhouse gases
  • 28. Potential emissions sources for an office building
  • 29. Office sources with conceptual boundary drawn
  • 30.
    • Common standards will allow
      • Comparability, transparency, and ability to benchmark
      • Reduce the confusion in the marketplace
      • Apply the technical rigour
    • A key requirement for any trading scheme for auditing purposes
    • When are we going to see the ‘Stern values’ of £25.5 per tonne of CO2 applied to government projects?
