Integra Business Solutions has launched a carbon footprint calculation portal, powered by Compare Your Footprint, to help members measure and report on their carbon emissions.
The ‘Green Initiative’ portal provides dealers with a dashboard together with ‘scope’ guidance and support to take them through the process, from collating and recording data to calculation and benchmarking.
Net-zero will affect all organisations and centres by reducing waste and operating more efficiently. With increasing pressure on businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and to work towards a UK target of net-zero by 2050, calculating carbon emissions is becoming more and more critical.
For members to be able to develop a carbon reduction or net-zero strategy for their businesses, measuring emissions will be the first step. The portal, once populated with the relevant data, will provide all the information members need to analyse areas for improvement and reduction.
For any businesses also working towards certifications, for example, B-Corp and ISO, the portal provides a reliable data repository that can be used to update and audit measurements.
Sian Haskell, Integra’s Marketing Director said, “We’ve been helping members in their sustainability journey through various initiatives together with our long-standing partnership with The Planet Mark. This portal is another component within our ‘Green Initiative’ programme designed to support dealers when it comes to reducing their carbon footprint and illustrating their commitment to corporate social responsibility. A strong CSR and environmental ethos at the centre of a business is proven to help retain and attract both customers and staff.”
The ‘Green Initiative’ portal is now live for members to access with a customer-facing portal coming soon.
