Veolia launches carbon measuring tool

Written by: Jo Gallacher | Published:

Veolia has launched a web-based platform for UK businesses to evaluate their carbon and waste use.

GreenPath measures impacts from energy, water and waste operations and has been designed to include future resource efficiency activities.

Veolia hopes it will help organisations of all sizes to meet regulatory obligations and reach environmental performance objectives.

It will be constantly updated with legal and scientific reports and will be able to to track indicators over time.

Richard Kirkman, chief technology and innovation officer at Veolia, said: "If we as a nation and as a planet are to make sustainable choices, it is critical we calculate the cost of carbon on our natural world.

"Currently we’re only scratching the surface with initiatives to curb carbon - to overturn the carbon shortfall in the UK carbon budget, we must think long term but act today.”

In research conducted by Veolia and Imperial College, the waste and resource sector will save over 200 million tonnes of carbon emissions between the years 2023 - 2032, with more than 10% contributed to the UK’s anticipated carbon budget shortfall during this time period.

GreenPath complies with international standards ISO 140641 AND ISO 14069 and was certified in November 2018 but the Interprofessional Technical Center for Atmospheric Pollution Studies.
