Every plan is made-to-measure. We follow a proven methodology and your company’s priorities to create a strategy that puts you on track to achieve your environmental targets.
1. Choose the destination: goals and feasibility
Before setting out on your net zero adventure, we will work with you to define feasible goals and give you all the information you need to achieve them. Whether you have your own targets or need help establishing them, we can sketch, change and tweak the plan together.
Firstly, we run you through the Pillars of Sustainability, offering detailed guidance on the different elements needed to reach net zero and the standards for reporting and disclosing results.
Then, we conduct a materiality assessment of the greenhouse gas emissions of your company, creating a materiality matrix and a list of all the elements that should be considered before starting your decarbonisation journey.
2. Study the landscape: current outlook
The journey towards net zero is about to start, and you need to be prepared. We conduct an extensive evaluation of the landscape and ensure that you have the proper equipment to navigate the path.
Ecohz provides multiple sectoral and competitive analyses:
- Evaluation of competitors’ sustainability targets and performance.
- Renewable energy market analysis.
- Your company's status.
3. Map out the route: the reduction plan
Based on fresh data, we handcraft a decarbonisation strategy tailored to your situation and outlook and advise you on the actions necessary to achieve your emission reduction targets.
Following science-based and internationally recognised standards (SBTi, CDP, GHG Protocol) and in compliance with legislation, our experts build a customised plan for your company to reach its goals in time, comprising:
- A comprehensive renewable energy strategy
- A detailed reduction pathway with different scenarios applicable to your company.
- Our final recommendations based on costs, ambitions, challenges and opportunities for each scenario.
4. Start walking: implementation
Let’s begin moving towards zero. Ecohz puts a range of tools at your disposal. From Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) to Green Gas, we cover the entire scope of market-based instruments your organisation needs to reduce its emissions. We can either become your direct sustainability solutions provider or assist you in choosing the best products and certificates from the market.
For transitional and unavoidable emissions, our team of experts will advise you on carbon offsetting and guide you to purchase top-quality carbon credits from projects with high environmental and social impact.
Further, we can provide upskilling activities on different topics, using workshops and webinars to upgrade the knowledge and capabilities of your stakeholders.
5. Share your story: reporting and communication
Transparency reinforces credibility. Ecohz assists you in preparing reports for international standards, such as CDP, and to comply with regulation like the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
Our team also offers a dedicated Energy & GHG Reporting service independently.
Moreover, we advise on how to craft a climate communication strategy that engages both clients and stakeholders, including internal communication assets, press releases, sustainability reports, social media, and more.
Whenever you need us, we are here. Whether you have questions about the process, want to revise your objectives or wish to scale up your commitments, we will guide you to the finish line and beyond.
