Getting to know your business carbon footprint. Calculate and offset.

by makeitwild.co.uk

If you are considering mitigating or offsetting your business’s carbon footprint, the first step is to work out how big it is. As a rough guide, the typical amount of carbon dioxide a business might emit each year is:
  • 20 tonnes for a small business

  • 100 tonnes for a medium-sized business

  • 1000 tonnes for a large business

We have prepared the following ‘menu’ to help you calculate an approximate carbon footprint for your business, based on the main activities causing the emission of carbon dioxide. Simply pick the closest to your situation and add up the emissions.

Heating (Natural Gas) per Year

To heat 75m2 (small industrial space/one large room):  4.2 tonnes

To heat 250m2 (a tennis court sized building):  13.5 tonnes

To heat 500m2:  27 tonnes

To heat 1000m2: 55 tonnes

Lighting and Equipment per Year

Lighting a large room, one or two electric appliances:  4.4 tonnes

Lighting a small building, a few electric appliances:  9 tonnes

Manufacturing power

Very small business: < 15,000 kWh per year/annual electricity bill £1,000: 5.5 tonnes

Small business: < 30,000 kWh per year/annual electricity bill £2,000: 11 tonnes

Medium business: < 50,000 kWh per year/annual electricity bill £3,500: 18 tonnes of CO2e

Transport

Driving a medium diesel van (per 10,000 miles): 7 tonnes  

1 long haul flight (per person): 3 tonnes

Dispatching orders

500 2kg parcels:  1 tonne

500 5kg parcels: 3.5 tonnes

1000 5kg parcels:  7 tonnes

If you would like to calculate your business’s carbon footprint more accurately, we recommend this online carbon calculator: http://www.carbon-calculator.org.uk/

Ideally, you should try to reduce your emissions as much as possible. Working through the carbon calculator will help you to understand the sources of your emissions. Then, for any remaining emissions, you can consider taking steps to offset or compensate.
