ESG to Financials
End-to-end GHG Analysis across Scope 1-2-3

Repurposing ESG into Operational and Financial Savings

The Project: Conducted an end-to-end Carbon Footprint scenario analysis across a leading UK safety equipment and tool business, enabling both business to fully understand their Carbon Footprint - Scope 1-2-3 - while enabling them to conduct scenario analysis that provided opportunities:
