IZIPIZI aims to halve the carbon footprint of their glasses. To meet this challenge, they began by learning from a Carbon Audit, to identify specific areas in which we can take action to improve the environmental impact of the business.
WHAT IS A CARBON AUDIT?
A Carbon Audit involves assessing the direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced by a business as part of its yearly activities. GHG emissions are measured in CO2 (carbon dioxide) and are classified in three major categories:
1: direct emissions
2: indirect emissions linked to use of electricity, heat, etc.
3: other indirect emissions linked to materials purchased to manufacture glasses, transport, packaging, employee transport, etc.
The Carbon Audit pinpoints weakness, in order to identify real action items that can lead to improvements.
