It’s important you keep a main record of your carbon footprint and emissions. This should include a span of data from the very high level, all the way down to the nitty gritty. Your main record should include your total overall emissions for the year, the total of each Scope, and the total of each separate aspect you measure. You can then use it to compare yearly emissions and see how and where they’ve changed, hopefully decreasing! Look at our carbon footprint guide for information on how you collect your emissions data. You can use our excel template to keep a main record of your carbon footprint and emissions.
