overview

Futureproofed is certified ‘Bilan carbone’-advisor.  We use this tool to make carbon footprints for companies & organisations.

The general purpose of the Carbon Balance Bilan Carbone

It’s a great tool that offers a helicopter view of your company or organisation CO2 emissions. We use Bilan Carbone to determine CO2 reduction opportunities that enable strategic choices to control and reduce your operational cost.  The method aims at giving an estimate for any emission linked to the activity, whether these emissions physicially happen within the boundaries of the activity or not. Emissions happening outside the boundaries might be those associated to electricity production, transportation, raw material production, waste treatment, etc .The Carbon Balance gives magnitudes, not exact figures. It allows to have « a blurred vision over a very large angle ».

Items taken into account

Fossil fuel use in fixed sources owned by the activity (boilers, ovens, distillation, etc) • Electricity or steam production in facilities located outside the activity • Other GHG emissions or removal than those related with energy use (leaks, carbon removal from lime, etc). • Any means of transportation used for the activity (road, air, sea, river…), for freight or people travel (including daily commuting, visitors, etc). • Raw material production when these materials are used by the activity • Services used (that use heating, electricity, etc) • Waste treatment of direct arisings or packaging materials • Capital fixed assets manufacturing (buildings, machinery, etc)
