Map and build your carbon inventory

Organizations often find it challenging to capture carbon data or - once they have it - to convert it into reports that can pass muster with third-party verifiers. Summit’s trained environmental professionals are skilled at developing greenhouse gas emissions inventories according to best-practice measurement and accounting methodologies.

Mapping your Carbon Inventory

What exactly will your organization’s carbon footprint include? Scopes one, two and three? All sources? How far down the supply chain should you go?

Summit’s CarbonMap™ tool helps answer these questions by establishing the guidelines for measuring your carbon footprint. CarbonMap™ outlines processes for capturing and reporting greenhouse gas emissions data in a succinct, efficient manner. A CarbonMap™ inventory management plan sets carbon emissions reporting parameters such as:

  • Boundary conditions that set the scope of reporting for operations and assets
  • Emissions calculation methodologies for energy and process-related emissions
  • Auditing and verification procedures
  • Data management processes

Building your Carbon Inventory

Building an accurate carbon footprint requires data – and lots of it. In fact, most sustainability teams significantly underestimate the time and effort required to gather this data. Energy use typically constitutes over 90% of an organization’s greenhouse gas emissions; therefore, to calculate a carbon footprint, you must have access to energy usage data. However, energy data is rarely available in electronic form – a surprise to many, given today’s technological tools.

Summit Energy coordinates the collection, organization and verification of all your organization’s data. Summit not only integrates this information into your carbon footprint, but also makes it accessible to you on Resource Advisor, our online sustainability and energy management software.

Beyond Emissions

Summit Energy knows your organization may have many environmental reporting concerns – beyond just greenhouse gas emissions. We provide measurement and reporting programs not only for carbon, but also for other components of your footprint such as:

  • Water
  • Steam
  • Refrigerants
  • Natural Gas

  • Tires
  • Crude Oil
  • Waste Water
  • Woodchips
  • Hydrogen
  • Fuel Oil
  • Sludge
  • Propane
  • Diesel
