How Does Business Carbon Footprinting Apply To Optics?
Andrew Clark 26/07/23
Listen to this article:
[Note: many large organisations have got away with declaring themselves “carbon neutral” by only accounting for their Scope 1 & 2 emissions - but these pale by comparison to the magnitude of Scope 3 emissions. The good news is that this is increasingly unacceptable, and could even be outright greenwashing if the limited scopes covered aren’t clearly presented alongside the “carbon neutral” claim!]
[*By conventional ie GHG protocol standards you don’t need to go to such depths in your carbon footprinting. But the Net Zero Eyecare standard for Net Zero Carbon certification is tailored for the optical industry and as boldly aspirational, so if you’re aiming for Net Zero Carbon certification with us then yes, you do have to go the extra mile – and I fully support that!]
