The publish EEG partners with Farnek to offer carbon footprint assessment appeared first on TD (Travel Daily Media) Travel Daily.
Emirates Environmental Group (EEG), has partnered with main UAE-based good and inexperienced amenities administration (FM) firm Farnek, to offer organisations a possibility to have their very own carbon footprint assessed.
With each events having the identical frequent dedication to sustainability in addition to supporting different organisations, Farnek has made its revolutionary calculation software CarbonTek, which was developed by in-house specialists, at Farnek’s digital options, sister firm HITEK, accessible on the EEG web site, permitting third-party organisations to apply for a calculation of their very own carbon footprint.
Farnek’s carbon workforce will develop a devoted activity-based report, particular to every buyer, following the standardised protocols to measure Scope 1, (direct emissions), Scope 2 (oblique emissions) and Scope 3 (all different oblique emissions).
“The notion of a partnership came about after Farnek had recently completed a carbon footprint assessment for the EEG, to align our commitment to the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 strategic target and broader global climate protection,” mentioned Habiba Al Mar’ashi, Co-Founder & Chairperson for the Emirates Environmental Group.
“Offering carbon assessment on our website, will not only generate awareness, it will also make calculation more accessible, especially for organisations that are eager to reduce their impact on the environment, but may not understand where and how to begin their journey towards carbon neutrality,” she added.
Using CarbonTek, Farnek was ready to calculate EEG’s CO2e emissions utilizing consumption knowledge and recognised scientific databases for measuring emission components, in accordance with Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) and ISO 14064 requirements.
“Measuring the EEG’s CO2e emissions was the initial phase of the project that involved comprehensive data mapping and categorisation for all of its business operations. These included electricity and fuel consumption, refrigerant emissions, purchased materials, business travel and employee commuting, upstream and downstream transportation as well as the waste generated during their business operations,” commented Nadia Ibrahim, Director – Consultancy & Sustainability at Farnek.
Conducting an operational management method, Farnek calculated the carbon footprint for all of EEG’s enterprise actions in Dubai, for the January to December 2022 reporting interval, which measured a complete of 486.54 tonnes of CO2e, with Scope 1 accounting for 70.4% of the whole, Scope 2 – 4.9% and Scope 3 – 24.7%.
“The completion of the carbon footprint assessment is step one in direction of attaining internet zero emissions by 2050. Through this complete assessment, the key emission hotspots have been recognized and we are able to now focus our decarbonisation efforts in these areas.
“This will also enable EEG to better understand their carbon emissions and identify opportunities to reduce their environmental impact supporting their sustainability efforts,” mentioned Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek.
