Calculate your carbon

Calculating your operation's carbon footprint is the first step to developing a Net Zero plan, "you don't go on a diet without weighing yourself..."

Having visibility of the 'problem' will help you to set realistic science-based Net Zero targets that align with your organisations goals.

At BCR Associates we offer two ways to measure your business' Carbon Footprint:

  1. Carbon Calculator - A simple 21 step questionnaire which arms you with a baseline emissions figure (tCO2e) with totals for Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
  2. Visible Carbon - A more detailed online tool that using purchase ledger data to establish your Carbon Footprint inline with Scope 1, 2 and 3 broken down by nominal codes to allow you to capture all sources of emission and report progress regularly without needing hours of specialist analysis.

                                                                                        Calculate your carbon footprint



Once you have a simple baseline and know the scale of your emissions our simple and user friendly platform Visible Carbon tool helps you gain a detailed understanding of your carbon footprint. The vast majority of your emissions will have an associated invoice or receipt ie: fuel, materials etc. Visible Carbon integrates with leading accounting software to capture this information and using your nominal codes allocate carbon emissions to each one.

80% of your emissions with be associated to 20% of your purchases. Visible Carbon will allow you to focus on the areas of your Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions that make the most difference to your overall emissions and give you the best Net Zero reductions.

Adhering to GHG Protocol (Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Reporting standard), our Visible Carbon reporting tool is crucial to understanding your organisation’s contribution to climate change.
