Efficient Data Collection for Net Zero Calculations
To streamline your net zero efforts, it is essential to understand the data you need and how to access it. Consider these key data sources and strategies:
Collaborate with your electricity provider to access consumption data and details about the fuel mix used for electricity generation. Automating the integration of metered data into your net zero platform simplifies calculations, ensuring accuracy and ease
Goods and Services Purchased
Utilise spend data from your accounting or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to evaluate emissions associated with procured goods and services. Choose appropriate emission conversion factors for calculating Scope 3 emissions. As your net zero journey progresses, aim for supplier-specific calculations, and ensure your platform accommodates both scenarios. This will bring far better accuracy to your calculation, allow you to focus on high-impact areas and tailor emission reduction strategies
Business Travel and Remote Working
Pay special attention to emissions from business travel and remote work. Establish tracking systems for travel-related fuel consumption and explore sustainable transportation options. With the prevalence of remote work, you will need to account for emissions from energy use in home offices and implement measures to minimise their impact
