The Power of Our Carbon Footprint Calculation Tool

1. Reliability and Certification:

Currently, making sure that the emission factors and reports are reliable and up to date is a very time-consuming task. The amount of different emission factors datasets makes it hard for companies and consultants to find good emission factors. Even when this is done, consultants still need to spend time updating their Excels to make sure they’re using the latest versions of these datasets.

Our commitment to accuracy and reliability sets us apart. At Carbon+Alt+Delete, we understand the importance of trustworthy data in the realm of carbon footprinting. That’s why our software is not just a tool; it’s a certified solution. We have earned our stripes through third-party certification, Vinçotte makes sure our GHGP and ISO reports as well as our emission factors datasets are correct and up to date. When you choose us, you’re choosing a partner certified to deliver excellence.

2. API Integration:

Easily integrating with your existing systems is paramount in the world of sustainability consultancy. In other ecosystems, like financial accounting, connecting to different systems to automate the data collection is a must. In sustainability or more specifically in Carbon Accounting, we believe this will be the case too.

This is why our software offers a robust API that allows effortless integration. This means you can harness the power of our carbon footprinting technology without disrupting your established workflows. It’s not just software; it’s a seamless extension of your expertise.

A good example of this is a collaboration with Enprove, here we integrate our tool with their Energy Management Software where consultants can access large amounts of Data.

3. Transparency for Sustainability Consultants:

Transparency is the bedrock of trust .The most used tool for Carbon Accounting at the moment is arguably Excel, and this is a key issue that end customers encounter when working with consultants in Excel. For the person who does the calculations all is clear, but for the customer can become a black box. Tooling is definitely an improvement in that sense.

Sustainability consultants, armed with our software, can offer unparalleled transparency to their clients. Imagine being able to showcase, in real-time, the meticulous calculations and the progress made towards carbon neutrality. The Carbon+Alt+Delete tool not only simplifies complexity but also transforms raw data into compelling narratives that clients can understand and appreciate.

4. Monitoring and In-Depth Analysis:

In the sustainability journey, consistency is key. Carbon+Alt+Delte allows you to check your progress annually while giving you the flexibility to upload your data continuously. Although the formal assessment happens yearly, you can update your information anytime, ensuring your strategies are always up-to-date.

This approach enables you to refine your efforts, spot patterns, and make informed decisions as you go. With our tool, sustainability isn’t just a yearly checkpoint; it’s a constant, adaptive process, driven by data. We simplify your path to a greener future, making sure you’re always on track.
