Carbon audit

Tackle the challenges of climate change to reduce your dependence on energy and increase your profitability
 
Increases in heat waves and the frequency of storms, higher temperatures, less availability of water, decrease in primary energy sources, increases in energy costs, etc. are all factors associated with climate changes. Therefore, greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities (combustion, transport, waste management, usage of products, etc.) need to be reduced immediately to guarantee a future for everyone.
 
The solution: carry out a Carbon Audit for your business, reduce emissions and offset remaining emissions.
 
Quantify your emissions
The Bilan Carbone (carbon audit) tool is used to quantify your CO2 emissions. AGECO Environmental consulting has been certified to use this tool, which is compatible with the ISO 14064 standard and the GHG Protocol initiative.
 
The Bilan Carbone® tool makes the following possible:
  • An overall evaluation of emissions: all greenhouse gas emissions associated with your business are taken into account.
  • A strategic economic simulation: the vulnerability of your company to energy price fluctuations and CO2 taxes is simulated.
Reduce your emissions
An action plan, proposed after the carbon audit and often associated with an environmental management approach (ISO 14000, for example), makes it possible to reduce your emissions.
 
Offset your emissions
You can offset your remaining emissions by investing in sustainable projects for reducing carbon:
  • Renewable energy (solar, wind, geothermal, etc.)
  • Energy efficiency: energy development of an incinerator, waste dump, etc.
  • Forestry: sustainable reforestation of zones affected by intensive deforestation.
By investing in sustainable projects, you can reach a Neutral Carbon Balance and obtain the internationally-recognised “Carbon Neutral” label of the Gold Standard Foundation.
 
Let's work together to:
  • Evaluate your needs
  • Manage data gathering
  • Identify the items producing the most emissions
  • Propose and give substance to courses of action
  • Assist you in choosing and implementing reduction measures
  • Environmentally and financially evaluate the action taken
  • Help you in choosing a sustainable offsetting project
  • Assist you in communicating about the measures you have taken against climate change
