You and your customers want to take action on climate change. But going about it isn’t easy.
Ecosphere+ intimately understands the challenges faced by small and medium-sized business looking to make a positive mark.
Our net zero room for SMEs aims to provide your business with a clear guide on taking climate action, including understanding your carbon footprint, how to begin reducing it, and how to compensate for any unavoidable emissions through carbon procurement.
An integrated pathway to net zero
Measure your impact and report this publicly
Set goals that align your business with net zero
Reduce your value chain emissions across scope 1, 2 and 3 and report progress
Compensate for unavoidable emissions by making a contribution to carbon projects around the world. Publicly communicate how you are using carbon credits.
Calculate and rebalance your business carbon footprint today
Ecosphere+ has developed a free-to-use carbon footprint calculator for businesses to take climate action today through carbon procurement. To be a credible participant in the voluntary carbon market, businesses should only use carbon credits as a final tool to compensate for unavoidable emissions, and only after making deep reductions across scopes 1,2 and 3.
Use either your measured footprint in emissions, or calculate your businesses carbon footprint using our guided tool. You can then offset your unavoidable impact by purchasing carbon credits on the Ecosphere+ platform, with your direct finance returned to high-impact projects across the world. By taking responsibility for your business footprint, you help finance vital conservation, restoration, reforestation, energy efficiency and sustainable development in critically threatened landscapes.
Statement of fairness and transparency
Fairness and transparency are core to our business values. If you have a question or concern about carbon credit pricing and how the revenue supports projects, we are happy to share that with you. Contact us.
Note on calculator: Aviation imposes other effects on the climate which are greater than just CO2 emissions alone and vary based on a range of factors (e.g. accounting for non-CO2 gases, flying through certain types of clouds, and even flying at night. There is currently no suitable or agreed climate metric (or Radiative Forcing Index) to express the relationship between emissions and additional climate warming effects from aviation and this is an active area of research. To take account of this, the UK Government recommends a ‘multiplier’ for the CO2 emissions associated with flying. A multiplier of 1.9 is recommended as a central estimate, based on the best available scientific evidence and consistent with UNFCCC reporting. Our carbon footprinting partner Carbon Analytics uses this in their carbon calculations. More information can be found in the 2016 Government GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting published by BEIS.
