Measuring, Reporting, Monitoring

Since 2008 we have been enabling businesses and governments to accurately and transparently calculate their climate impact, to facilitate compliance with the latest legislation and build resilience for the future.

Measuring

We continually update our software to ensure it is compliant with the latest legislation.

Ecometrica’s platform enables you to accurately calculate and report greenhouse gas emissions. It is used by the world’s largest companies to report emissions, both direct emissions and indirect emissions. It also collects a diverse, geo-referenced data set, which goes beyond traditional sustainability reporting to include Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s scopes 1, 2 and 3, and other key corporate indicators such as water, forests, and TCFD metrics – not only looking at your climate impact but the climate’s impact on you.

Reporting

Our software provides audit-ready reports set up for CDP, TCFD, SECR, PPN06/21 and future SEC legislation.

Once your greenhouse gas emissions have been calculated on the platform, reporting and complying to the appropriate standard is straightforward. The software is set up to ensure you only have to enter the data once and the rest of the work is done for you.

Teams of Sustainability Analysts ensure that every update to legislation is mirrored in the software. We work very closely with CDP (we were their first UK based partner back in 2010) to ensure the questionnaire is constantly refined with the latest guidance.

Monitoring

Our deforestation risk assessment tool uses satellite data to monitor key commodity crops (cocoa, palm oil, coffee) to monitor supplier and sourcing areas for compliance.

New legislation means companies now face a due diligence requirement to ensure they are not selling products that have caused deforestation or forest degradation, which will mean monitoring land in countries of origin via satellites and geolocation tracking.

From 31 December 2020 any companies actively sourcing supplies must prove they have not been responsible for any deforestation. We partner with key countries to obtain authoritative data on forest boundaries to ensure precise metrics. We have a strong track record on measuring deforestation in Ghana, Colombia and Mexico with key partnerships in these countries.

Key Phrases

Greenhouse Gas (GHG)2023-01-16T20:45:23+00:00

A greenhouse gas (GHG or GhG) is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range, causing the greenhouse effect.  The greenhouse gases (GHG) included in the atmospheric emissions are those covered by the Kyoto Protocol: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). These gases contribute directly to global warming and climate change, because of their positive radiative forcing effect. The potential of each GHG to cause global warming is assessed in relation to a given weight of CO2, so all greenhouse gas emissions are measured as carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e).

TCFD2023-01-16T20:46:59+00:00

Task Force for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures. The TCFD has developed a framework to enable companies to effectively disclose climate-related risks and opportunities through their existing reporting processes. https://www.fsb-tcfd.org/

Deforestation2023-01-16T20:55:10+00:00

The clearance or removal of forest on land that is then converted to a different land use; such as farms, ranches or urban uses
