ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINTING

Sustainability 360° is inspired from our appreciation for unique business operations. We design effective, viable strategies that complement current operations to achieve tangible results economically and sustainably.

A truly responsible company, has to account for the impacts and footprints that its business operations generates. VNV offers diverse services through accounting, hot spot analysis and LCAs in areas of GHGs, Water, Biodiversity and Waste. Our principles of sustainability 360° also encompasses concepts of supply chain sustainability.

  • Scope 3 Emissions

    As part of our environmental footprinting service, we offer customers with in-depth guidance to increase their scope and boundaries to Scope 3 emissions from both upstream and downstream supply chains. We will provide a detail layout plan to the customer to expand their boundaries of Scope 3 emissions over a planned timeline of implementation.

    Emission Factors

    The references sources for emission factors that are used for our environmental footprint exercise have been derived from research by environmental institutions and agencies around the world that include: India GHG Protocol, Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), The International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Energy Agency (IEA), etc,.

    Please note that while considering emissions from Aviation, we have included Radiative Forcing Index (RFI) of 1.9 to the emission factor. The Radiative Forcing Index (RFI) has been used to quantify non-CO2 warming effects of air travel.

    Disclaimer

    Calculations made during the process of an environmental footprint will be made using all available resources and data provided. All assumptions and sources of data will be provided in calculation sheets & reports shared with the customer.

    *Please note that there will be certain assumptions and approximations made to attain the most accurate result.
