Companies are increasingly required to demonstrate that they take a proactive approach to carbon footprint issue and social responsibility.

By putting carbon reduction at the center of their sustainability strategy, companies can provide a transparent, easy-to-communicate goal with specific, measurable parameters.

What is Carbon Footprint

Carbon footprinting is an assessment and reporting methodology that enables companies, buildings and cities to more accurately calculate carbon emissions and identify areas for improvement. Bureau Veritas has extensive experience offering carbon footprint verification (CFV) to standards that help organizations measure and report on their carbon footprint rigorously and transparently.

Carbon footprinting is a recognized best practice for companies seeking to track their carbon output in an effort to reduce it. Accurate monitoring and reporting shows companies where changes can be made and impact minimized, helping them achieve net zero targets.


Both voluntary standards and protocols and mandatory reporting regimes exist to which businesses can assess and report their carbon footprint thoroughly and transparently. Using holistic, structured methodologies consistent with standards of lifecycle assessment, they give organizations the information and guidance they need to reduce emissions.
