Many organization is in need of sustainability approach and strategy. A quick dirty way to start off is always the Carbon Footprint Report. So, what exactly is a Carbon Footprint Report and how can it be dirty and quick? This is 3 simple steps to start your sustainability movement using Carbon Footprint Report.
Step 1: Communicate Report Objective
In my real life experience, building a Carbon Footprint report is actually the easiest part. Most forgot to communicate the report objective to all the stakeholders. Often, the Carbon Footprint purpose is lost in translation. So, it is not surprising that its creation is a one time event and not being utilised.
Step 2: Monitor your Checkpoints
Another positive outcome you can derive from Carbon Footprint Report is the setup of checkpoints. There are many instance where the report is generated and processed as raw data. This is unproductive as you need sustainability checkpoint. The checkpoints ensure your sustainability efforts are monitored and guided in the correct direction.
Step 3: Broadcast your Win
The last part is the most important part. With one small step using Carbon Footprint Report, you can broadcast your sustainability achievements with continuing checkpoints. This reinforce your benefits of your sustainability program and creates more awareness. You may also develop a domino effect to other applications in setting this report as a key success part of all Sustainability program.
