Carbon Footprinting helps you understand which parts of your supply chain have the greatest impact

 

 

What makes up a Carbon Footprint?

 

Scope 1 (a direct emission):           

Gas usage on your main site

 

Scope 2 (an indirect emission):       

Emissions associated with the generation of electricity used

 

Scope 3 (indirect emissions):       

Emissions associated with materials coming into the site (upstream)

and 

Emissions due to activities linked to your product once it has left site (downstream)

Questions that may stop you progressing

  • I am confused after reading the first text box:          Where do I start?

  • How do I know what data to collect?

  • How do I decide which model to use?

  • How do I become an expert?

  • Where do I find conversion factors?

  • What if I am uncertain about the accuracy of my data?

  • How do I report carbon footprint performance?

  • Some of my colleagues don't believe in climate change so how do I engage them in this?

"Don't worry

I have been here before you and I can help you answer all these and many more questions -

You can do it!"

Maltdoctor can create a map of your carbon footprint and guide you through data collection and reporting

Here's a typical chain of events 

  1. Explain to your teams what a carbon footprint is, how to deal with uncertainty and what not to worry about.

  2. Determine the audience who will be interested in the data and why

  3. Define the data sets required

  4. Determine areas where improved data collection may be required or define the basis of estimation

  5. Set up initial modelling to find the profile of carbon in your supply chain

  6. Create your first carbon footprint model

  7. Write a report of carbon emissions for stakeholders

  8. Determine a plan to reduce carbon emissions most effectively by addressing the most significant areas

Maltdoctor designed a carbon calculator from growing of barley through malt production up to use in beer/whisky and will help you understand how to use carbon footprint models effectively

Who is your audience?

List your stakeholders 

Why do you want a model?

To have data or to drive change?

Develop a good Carbon Map

Define your scope and supply chain

Report your data and goals

Share your data and aspirations

Typical timescale is around 10 days for an initial footprint model dependent on the quality and availability of your data and the complexity of your operations.
