How to calculate carbon emissions of your business travel

The easiest way to measure the carbon emissions of all your business travel.

There has never been a more important time for businesses to accurately calculate carbon footprint. There is no better time to be a part of the solution to climate change than NOW.

Why do you need to measure the carbon emissions in your business?

You’re likely aware about the pressing need for us, as business leaders and as a collective – to reduce our carbon emissions…
The planet is essentially over-heating because of our behaviors.
Our cumulative actions are leaving a potential trail of destruction behind.

The COP26 Agreement in 2021 will have huge implications for businesses throughout the UK and the rest of the world. World leaders came together to establish regulatory frameworks to ensure the fight against climate change continued.

These frameworks will require some businesses to display a commitment to reach net zero by 2050.

During the conference, the UK Government announced that it will be compulsory for all publicly listed companies and financial institutions to publish a net zero plan by 2023, detailing their strategies and commitments on how they aim to reach net zero by 2050.

The ripple effect of this will be that the above businesses will then be looking to their supply chains and ultimately choosing to do business with companies that are also committed to reducing their emissions. This is a trend that is not going away. The world is acting NOW.

Research has also shown that customers are increasingly opting to choose businesses that take steps towards climate change.

Committing to climate change is no longer a choice, it’s a necessity for business success.

What is the business solution for climate change?

The solution for climate change begins with accurate carbon calculations. After all, the first step in solving any problem starts with understanding the cause. There is no hard and fast solution to something that we’ve all been contributing to for decades. However, with some simple steps as a collective we can start to reverse these effects starting today.
