Guidance for Calculating a Carbon Footprint and Setting a Target

This guidance has been issued to support signatories to the Pledge to Net Zero publicly report on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Public GHG reporting is a requirement of commitment 2 (publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against targets each year) and is integral to commitment 1 (set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum).

This document contains an example of how a consultancy may define and report a carbon footprint. Download below:

‘Pledge to Net Zero’ is the first industry commitment in the UK requiring science-based targets from its signatories to tackle greenhouse gas emissions within their organisations.


The pledge recognises the need for organisations from the environmental services sector to take a leadership role in the transition to a Net Zero carbon economy. Join with us and make the pledge.
