Compare Your Footprint is a cost-effective alternative to using consultants for an initial carbon footprint assessment. It was set up because of a demand from companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint but feel you are not ready to engage experts.
Barriers to being green
The demand for cheaper ways of carbon footprint assessment was identified by Green Element, a successful Environmental Management Consultancy. Over the years it noticed that many companies would love to be more green but were being held back by the initial financial barriers. By semi-automating the process it has been able to significantly reduce the cost of assessment and create a more open playing field.
