12pm – 4pm 23 October 2008

What’s the carbon footprint of your company? If like most companies, you don’t know, come along to this workshop organised by the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Groundwork Merseyside, which is designed to empower you to measure and reduce your carbon footprint.

How will it benefit my business?

The main benefits associated with carrying out a Carbon Footprint Assessment are:

–    Cost savings identified as a result of improving business resource efficiency
–    Improved company image & improved corporate social responsibility credentials
–    Accessing new contracts
–    Achievement of stakeholder demands
–    Integration with existing Environmental Management System
–    Improved supply chain management

What is a Carbon Footprint Assessment?

A Carbon Footprint Assessment is a method of calculating the direct impacts your business has on greenhouse gas emissions. The Carbon Footprint Assessment Tool (CFA) devised by Groundwork Merseyside looks at the following aspects of your business:

–    Staff Travel
–    Business Travel
–    Energy use
–    Water use
–    Waste production

The Carbon Footprint Assessment will then produce a reading specific to your business, enabling you to measure what your current impact is, benchmark that impact and set in place an action plan to minimise your impact over time. The CFA report will include information on carbon offsetting, renewable technology and green energy supplies.

Cost

This seminar gives you the tools to calculate your own carbon footprint, and costs only £7:50 to cover administration

Please come prepared!

In preparation for the Carbon Footprint Assessment Workshop please ensure that you bring the following information:

12 monthly bills for the following (if applicable):
–    Electricity
–    Gas
–    Fuel oil
–    LPG
–    Waste Transfer Notes
–    Waste for recycling
–    Water

In addition to the above we need information on staff and business travel.  Forms for this will be provided on registration.

This information is essential to the accuracy of the carbon footprint calculation and will enable you to carry out an accurate Carbon Footprint Assessment during the workshop.

You can also come prepared by downloading and completing these two forms to help us assess your travel costs.
