Answering Key Business Questions
– How do I calculate our organisation’s carbon footprint?
– Which business processes are responsible for most emissions?
– Which products have the greatest environmental impact?

– How can I analyse and report the results?
Building your GHG Inventory
GHG Modeler™ combines a proven business modeling approach with the internationally-accepted protocols for defining and measuring GHG emissions. The step-by-step approach guides you in identifying
and quantifying both direct and indirect emissions to build your organization’s GHG inventory or carbon footprint. GHG Modeler™ has built-in conversion factors, both local and international, which ensure a consistent and accurate assessment. Flexible tables enable you to develop industry-specific measures and conversion factors if required.
Direct and Indirect Emissions
The GHG Protocol Initiative has defined Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions which represent the degree to which the organization can influence and control. GHG Modeler enables you to identify and report separately on the classification of emissions as well as supporting the complexity of supply chain modeling through to the level of individual product life cycles.
Analyzing and Reducing Emissions
GHG Modeler™ allocates emissions to your organization’s key activities and businesses processes before tracing them through to the customers and products which consume them. Through built-in OLAP functionality you will understand how you business generates its carbon footprint through the combination of internal processes and external demand. This unique insight can highlight opportunities for reducing emissions and provide the basis for long-term, sustainable reduction strategies.
