  1. Why should I measure my GHG emissions? With the advent of the century, climate issues have taken permanent residence at the forefront of public and government concern. Measuring carbon emissions is paramount in demonstrating and enacting awareness and recognition. Through Climate Essentials, the process of organising, standardising and presenting carbon data is simplified, allowing for easy tracking and control. Measuring emissions can also provide organisations with the means to pinpoint unnecessary resource sinks, acting as a valuable assistant in improving business procedures. What d
  2. As we transition to a more globalised economy, the shipping industry also grows exponentially, making over 14 trillion US dollars annually. And with a large amount of cargo being transported in global trading, tons of data are also being generated. These data help companies make profitable decisions based on the statistical numbers collected, facts, and trends. Over time, the continuous growth of the shipping industry will require the maximisation of time and profit for a more structured and profitable transport services. That is when Big Data comes in—to keep up with the volume of data
  3. “Net-zero in 3 easy steps” “Measure, reduce, and offset” “Offset your business footprint in two steps” “For less than X per week, you can become climate positive” Let’s face it, if climate action were that easy, then climate change would have been solved by now and the 2021 carbon emissions would not have been the highest ever recorded. Climate mitigation is NOT easy, actively reducing your business emissions is quite an undertaking that needs to be underpinned by a proactive leadership, an engaged workforce, the right knowledge and tools, and often a healthy cash flow
  4. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), we need to halve carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 to avoid climate catastrophe. The IPCC set that deadline in 2018 — we now have 8 years left. Just 12 years (since 2018) doesn’t seem enough to reverse over a century of environmental damage, but experts say it’s doable if we act quickly. The rate of growth of emissions has slowed down since 2019. It’s a good sign that our efforts are working, but it’s still going to be a gargantuan task. Hearing all the doom and gloom about climate chang
  5. Businesses are critical in the fight against climate change as they are the source of the majority of global emissions. Targets set by Government will never be achieved if businesses do not move towards them. That is why we are calling on small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) to do what they can to help, by measuring their emissions and aligning net-zero pledges with carbon action. Some businesses have a legal obligation to report their emissions, but that doesn't extend to everyone. And while your business may not have to do it, it is important to keep in mind the advantages that mana
