Carbon Footprint Calculation

By analyzing the data on the different types of energy consumed, we calculate your company's carbon footprint.
By calculating your carbon footprint, we help your company to determine the quantity of CO2 it emits in its daily activity, based on the analysis of consumption expenses for electricity, gas, fuel and other types of energy. Finding out this data is the first step toward implementing actions that will help your company to reduce energy consumption expenses and, at the same time, contribute to a better and more sustainable planet.

Companies that have already seen success

To help a company reduce its costs, we calculate its carbon footprint (environmental impact) and identify, together with specialized technicians, the measures to be taken: 

  • With the installation of 1,230 solar panels (351 kWp) on the company's roof, the company started to produce its own energy and achieved significant monthly savings in operating costs.
  • It started to save, on average, close to EUR 42,790 annually and reduced the CO2 emissions of the company by 148 tonnes.
  • Thanks to these savings, the company was able to recover its investment of EUR 274,794 in six and a half years.

Other benefits of investing in energy efficiency

  • Protection against fluctuations in energy prices 
  • Compliance with new sustainability regulations
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions and global warming
