Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting and Tracking is Complex. DC Energy Can Help.

How Accurate Is Your Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory?

Without the necessary background and experience, the odds of compiling accurate greenhouse gas emissions reporting and inventories are slim. Whether it’s underreporting or over-reporting, if baselines and benchmarks are established on faulty numbers, the inaccuracies can trigger a cascade of problems ranging from poor CDP grades or Project Gigaton evaluations, imprecise short- and long-range targets, unnecessary or inappropriate operational improvements, and most damaging, loss of business.

DC Energy Has Helped Facilities Improve CDP Scores by TWO Full Letter Grades

Our engineers are experts at writing carbon disclosure statements. We know how to examine your facility’s entire emissions profile, and we often discover overlooked energy-related projects, goals and targets that impact GHG inventories in ways inhouse teams may not recognize. Oftentimes, facilities needlessly receive poor ratings on their CDP scores due to common oversights and incomplete assessments. As energy management pros, we know where to look, and we know how a facility’s various ecosystems influence one another.

The result? Comprehensive, accurate analysis for benchmarking, compliance, project identification, and targeting.

  • Scope 1 – Direct greenhouse gas emissions produced by your facilities and vehicles.
  • Scope 2 – Indirect greenhouse gas emissions related to the purchase of electricity, steam, heat or cooling.
  • Scope 3 – Value-chain emissions, or emissions that are not directly caused by your operation but are the Scope 1 & 2 emissions from another organization within your supply chain.

DC Energy Can Help You Accurately Track and Understand Your Company’s Entire Emissions Profile

Identify Gaps in Inventory

We inventory and calculate your facility’s emissions with a focus on identifying any gaps and discrepancies that may exist. Our inventories utilize location-specific emission factors, rather than national averages in order to develop a highly accurate carbon footprint assessment of your facility.

Correct Reporting Discrepancies

We assist organizations with drafting and revising carbon disclosure surveys to be detailed and integrative, providing a complete picture of your carbon management strategy, accomplishments and objectives. Our engineers are CARB accredited verifiers and AEE certified energy management professionals.

Develop Science-Based Emissions Reduction Targets

We will work with you to develop clearly-defined science-based targets and SMART goals built upon highly accurate baselines.

  • Absolute Targets – Whole system efficiency objectives.
  • Relative Targets – Per-product energy efficiency objectives.
  • SMART Goals – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely.

Why Invest in Accuracy?

The move toward more sustainable business practices will only become more of an imperative as time goes on. Without reliable inventories, your energy management strategies will be compromised – now and well into the future. Understanding the true scope of your emissions footprint is essential to meeting your customers’ expectations and gaining maximum ROI on operational improvements.
