Currently the answer is no one! Unless our work undergoes third party verification. (Which we have a fantastic track record of!) This is why we are so transparent with our work and try and take the black box out of sustainability.

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) evaluates the environmental impact of a product or service throughout its life cycle, from raw materials to end-of-life. By identifying areas of high emissions, an LCA can highlight opportunities for efficiency and innovation, helping to streamline your offerings.
A Life Cycle Assessment identifies the emissions produced by a specific product or service. By understanding these emissions, you can streamline your offering, reducing both your environmental impact and potentially your costs.

No, calculating a carbon footprint is not a one-time process. It is a dynamic measurement that changes as your business operations evolve. Regular footprint assessments are crucial to track your progress and adjust your strategies as necessary.
A carbon footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by a person, organisation, event, or product. It is usually measured in tonnes of CO2 equivalent. At MyCarbon, we employ rigorous scientific and engineering methods to calculate your business's carbon footprint accurately.
Managing your carbon footprint is essential in addressing climate change, the most significant global threat we face today. By proactively managing and reducing your emissions, you are contributing to global efforts to limit warming, while also future-proofing your business against rising regulatory, customer and investor expectations.
Your supply chain can significantly contribute to your overall carbon footprint. MyCarbon helps engage with suppliers to improve their sustainability practices, thereby reducing the overall emissions associated with your products or services.
Carbon Modelling uses scientific methods to project your business's future emissions under different scenarios. This helps you to develop reduction strategies and anticipate the impact of future regulations, ensuring your business remains resilient and competitive.
While some industries may face more significant challenges in reducing their emissions due to the nature of their operations, every business can take steps towards net-zero. With the right strategies and offsetting initiatives, all industries can contribute to the global goal of net-zero emissions.
A 'net-zero' business is one that effectively balances the amount of greenhouse gases it emits with the amount it removes from the atmosphere. MyCarbon can help you develop a bespoke net-zero strategy, providing guidance on reducing emissions and identifying suitable offsetting opportunities.
While carbon offsetting can play a role in achieving net-zero emissions, it should be seen as part of a broader strategy. The first step is always to reduce emissions as much as possible through efficiency improvements and innovations. Offsetting can then be used to compensate for unavoidable emissions.
MyCarbon only recommends offsetting projects from proven providers. These projects are thoroughly vetted for their effectiveness and ethical standards, ensuring that your investments are contributing to real, meaningful change.
Carbon offset projects can vary widely but usually include initiatives such as reforestation and afforestation, renewable energy projects, community-based projects in developing countries, and technological innovations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
MyCarbon only works with proven offsetting providers that support ethical and effective projects worldwide. We do not stock our own credits, maintaining our impartiality and ensuring that the offsetting options we present align with your values and make a real difference.
The certification process duration depends on the complexity of your business operations and the type of certification sought. Our team will work with you to ensure a smooth and efficient process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
After you've implemented your carbon reduction and offsetting strategies, MyCarbon can certify your business as carbon neutral, net-zero, or industry champions. This certification validates your hard work and helps you demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.
