Car­bon foot­print analy­sis and eco-effi­cien­cy strat­e­gy.

A large ener­gy com­pa­ny asked DE to bring their envi­ron­men­tal skills to their orga­ni­za­tion and to per­form a green­house gas foot­print. This project required a sys­tems approach to their oper­a­tion as the orga­ni­za­tion was bro­ken up into its key func­tion­al units (zones). This approach allowed for oper­a­tional para­me­ters to be linked to car­bon inten­si­ty.

The DE team drew from expe­ri­ence in the auto­mo­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor to do the ini­tial process analy­sis. The ISO 14065 green­house gas analy­sis stan­dards were use as foun­da­tion for the project. This stan­dard approach was then adapt­ed to the spe­cif­ic cir­cum­stance. This work was key to deter­min­ing ways of reduc­ing green­house gas emis­sions and improv­ing eco-effi­cien­cy.
