Measuring your carbon footprint
Find your sustainability superpower
You can only discover your biggest opportunities for carbon saving by uncovering your most material carbon impacts, whether they’re part of your Scope 1, 2 or 3 emissions.
That’s why we walk you step-by-step through the process of measuring your organisation’s carbon footprint with our easy footprinting tool – providing comprehensive support when you need it.
We’ll also help you with your product carbon footprints and provide full lifecycle analyses.
Because once you know where your impacts lie, you can see clearly which simple changes could become your sustainability superpower.

Setting targets to reduce your impact
Learn where to use your superpower
Once you’re fully conscious of where your impacts lie, you can decide what you want to change, and how quickly.
Our expert team will work closely with you to calculate what’s possible, taking all aspects of your business into account. We’ll challenge you to set exciting goals that align with both your business needs, and the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and Net Zero Standard. Making sure your business can grow and adapt through an uncertain future.
So you’ll come away with ambitious yet achievable sustainability targets that will strengthen your business in the long term.

Working holistically to set achievable targets
When you have a clear plan for how you’ll achieve your targets, you’re much more likely to be successful.
And success builds trust with your customers, employees, and investors.
That’s why we develop your targets and strategy hand-in-hand, working closely with every part of your business to make sure your aims are strategically feasible before committing to them. Because setting overly ambitious targets might feel exciting, but finding out too late that they’re impossible to achieve will only erode all the good work you’ve done with your stakeholders.
At Consciam, we help you find the balance between setting targets that are challenging enough to respond to the climate emergency, but achievable enough to ensure your business remains strong in the face of change.

Change can be hard. But it’s made easier when everyone in the organisation knows what’s expected of them and is motivated to take action.
So we’ll get everyone involved, from your most senior members to your newest employees. We’ll create a plan with clear, understandable steps. A plan that employs your team’s strengths and interests to greatest effect. And where there’s resistance, we’ll have the hard conversations and provide the accountability that leads to change.
As a result, you’ll not only get an achievable sustainability strategy aligned with your business goals and needs, but a team of engaged employees motivated to see it through.
We’ll also help you prepare for the impacts climate change may have on your business, making sure you build this into your strategy for greater resilience in the future.

Once you’ve achieved a few wins, you’ll be amazed at how much your business can have a positive impact on people and planet while still making a profit.
But sometimes, ‘business as usual’ makes it all too easy to sight of your goals. And hitting profit targets becomes more important than spending time and money on implementing your new strategy.
That’s why we offer a fully outsourced Sustainability Director service, to keep you focused on making the important changes and achieving your bold sustainability commitments.
We’ll come and work with your team. We’ll provide support in leadership meetings. And even act as an external advisory board to challenge resistance, provide horizon scanning and legislation advice, and guide you through key changes on your journey to becoming a conscious business.
