UK's First Complete Carbon Reporting Platform

Energy Management, EMEA, Service Provider News
Veolia has launched the web-based GreenPath platform which measures carbon impacts from energy, water, and waste operations, and facilitates biodiversity diagnoses at the scale of a physical site.

 

Introduced in response to a recent YouGov research finding that 61 per cent of C-suite executives have not set targets for reducing their carbon emissions, GreenPath is designed to assist organisations fulfil their statutory carbon reporting requirements by covering footprint calculation and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction.

 

The tool will also be of interest to strategic future planners within businesses and public sector organisations by providing site-wide analyses of environmental performance objectives.

 

Externally recognised, GreenPath  complies with international standards including ISO 140641, ISO 14069 Standards, and the GHG Protocol, and was certified in November 2018 by the Interprofessional Technical Center for Atmospheric Pollution Studies, CITEPA, based in Paris. To ensure accuracy and compliance the platform is continuously updated to take account of legal and scientific changes, and tracks indicators over time to produce a wide range of reports. It is also upgradeable to enable integration of new activities on demand.

 

Announcing the platform's launch, Richard Kirkman, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer - Veolia UK & Ireland, said:

"Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is critical to help control the potentially devastating effects  of climate change. Our launch of GreenPath is another example of our application of innovative technologies that can help our customers monitor and deliver real reductions in carbon footprint. This will not only boost sustainability for our customers but will also help Britain uphold its carbon commitments and drive green and sustainable alternatives.

 

"As one of the few blue chips that has already become Carbon Neutral in the UK, we are committed to supporting the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy for a low carbon future. If we as a nation and as a planet are to make sustainable choices, it is critical we calculate the cost of carbon on our natural world. Currently we’re only scratching the surface with initiatives to curb carbon - to overturn the carbon shortfall in the UK carbon budget, we must think long term but act today."

 

Veolia are carbon positive with a positive Carbon Performance Ratio (CPR) of 1.05 in 2017 against a background of business growth, and saves customers 2 million tonnes of carbon emissions that contribute to the goals in the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan by targeting environmental impacts.

 

In research conducted by Veolia and Imperial College London, the waste and resource sector is projected to single-handedly save over 200 million tonnes of carbon emissions between the years 2023 - 2032, with more than 10 per cent contributed to the UK’s anticipated carbon budget shortfall during this time period.
