If you already have robust climate data, you can share this with the Spherics climate science team. The data needs to be verified inline with industry approved methodologies.
Get your data verified by Spherics in order to gain “gold standard” rating and a higher data quality score. This verification may make your organisation more favourable in future procurement decisions.
Consultants can deliver excellent impact measurement and strategy, but often at a significant cost. Their manual approach is very thorough and involved, which often takes a large investment of time. This approach results in a one-off carbon footprint, rather than one that is updated in near-real time by a live accounting feed.
For this reason, a consultancy-led approach is not fit to meet the needs of the climate crisis at scale. Spherics applies the latest technology to support your business in growing its awareness of its carbon footprint at a fraction of the cost and time investment of a consultant.
All carbon footprints are compiled in essentially the same way: record all the things you do, measure the impact of each and add it all up. The methodology we use and the carbon calculations we carry out are always compatible with the standards laid out in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
Spherics has come up with a pragmatic approach to carbon footprinting, which allows organisations to get started measuring their carbon footprint with easily available accounting data, and then coaches them to refine this with better data over time. We consider data to be better based on it’s: accuracy, completeness and specificity.
Scoping is a key carbon accounting concept that apportions an organisation's total carbon footprint between three categories. These categories are based on the degree of influence a given organisation has over the source of emissions. You can read more on scoping here.
As scope 3 emissions typically make up the majority of a business's carbon footprint, our approach is to allocate all of an organisation's carbon footprint to scope 3 by default, and subtract scope 1 and 2 from this. We think this approach is best to ensure all businesses are accountable for all their associated emissions by default, which is the only way we can limit warming to within 1.5℃.
