Lowering greenhouse gas emissions

When it comes to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, every business can make a difference, regardless of size. If you're a small, medium or large-sized business looking to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, here are four key steps to get you started:

Step 1: Know your carbon footprint baseline: Every plan needs a place to start. Today there are internationally recognized standards, like ISO 14064-1 that are a good starting place for organizations wanting to establish their existing GHG inventory or carbon footprint baseline.

Step 2: Establish a credible carbon footprint plan: There are several online registries that are an excellent resource for companies looking to develop or improve their carbon footprint plan. They can provide a framework for reporting an organization's GHG inventory. They also provide information about what other leading edge organizations are doing to improve their carbon footprint.

Step 3: Track and document improvement: Once your business has quantified its carbon footprint you can begin identifying opportunities to implement and track emission reductions and improvements. The Canadian Standards Association's GHG Clean Projects Registry provides a framework and a website for reporting project-based GHG emission reductions based on accepted international standards. Standards also exist to help establish credibility for the carbon reduction improvements through independent verification.

Step 4: Achieve recognition and reward: In addition to the potential to increase efficiency and reduce energy costs, the ability to showcase the success of your GHG reduction plan and receive public recognition can bolster your company's reputation, and generate competitive and shareholder value. There are online registries available that are perfectly suited for this purpose.
