What is carbon accounting?
Carbon accounting is like financial accounting. Only instead of being concerned with converting an organisation’s activity into money, and recording and reporting that, it’s concerned with recording and reporting the GHG emissions that activity caused.
What’s driving carbon accounting?
To achieve our commitment to reach net zero GHG emissions by 2050, the UK needs to have a clear and accurate picture of which organisations are emitting what. Only with transparent accounting can organisations develop the plans they need to mitigate their emissions.
Large organisations in the UK are already required to record and report their emissions. Now many such organisations are putting pressure on their suppliers and partners to give them detailed and transparent information about the emissions their activities are causing too.
