We work with you to help understand the current operating environment and develop a baseline for your organisation
Benchmarking is a critical step to understand where you are at currently. We develop a benchmark for your organisation or community across a range of areas. This could be against similar organisations, geographies, declarations, certifications and helps to determine where you are aiming to be positioned.
You’ve likely already undertaken work to reduce emissions. We identify and collate all of this great work across your organisation and include this in the future state. This assists in the development of a set of activities to provide quick wins and longer-term activities.
We develop a baseline of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use and work with you to understand the scope of the baseline. Broken down into different scopes and sectors to ensure accuracy and focus, baselining typically includes energy, transport and the circular economy. We consider whether we are including only those emissions in your operational control, across a specific precinct or the broader community. This allows us to work with you to develop measurable long-term reduction targets.
Feasibility reports, for example solar feasibility or community energy model studies, are essential to support the development of a business case or strategy. We conduct and prepare this report to help you make the best decisions for your next step.
The development of the business case incorporates the current state information and provides the justification to move to the next stage.
This includes a budget, timeline, risk assessment, return on investment and benefits calculation.
