No matter the size or sector, any organization can manage and reduce its impact on the Earth’s Global Climate, and lower its Green House Gases Emissions (GHGs).
To get started, and plan for the success of your GHG Management Programme, you should first consider how to design and implement the best plan for your business or organization.
In particular, you would need to start defining a business case for managing the company’s GHG emissions by examining both the direct and indirect risks and opportunities that your organization faces at present, or might face soon.

Energy consumption has become a key performance indicator for any organization.
If you can save energy, you can also save operational costs, as well as reduce your company’s greenhouse gas emissions, take greater care for natural resources and contribute to sustainable development through positive and tangible actions.
If you work in any energy intense industry (chemical, cement, paper, ceramic, glass, lime, iron alloys and minerals, chlor-alkali, steel, metals, clay), and other sectors covered by the Emission Trading Scheme (under the Kyoto Protocol’s Emissions Trading Scheme, or the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, which put a cap on carbon dioxide emissions and create a market and price for carbon allowances), you can help your organization achieve significant improvement in energy consumption.
As a CEO, C-Level Executive, or Senior Manager, you can advise your company to implement energy efficiency best practices (identifying where energy is used, wasted and saved for the most effect), optimize energy resources and increase usage of renewable energy, instead of using a large percentage of fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas for the industrial production.

Energy costs have a significant impact on most industries and business activities. Although, they are easier to measure, if comparing with another natural resource like water, first energy issues need to be identified and addressed to gain efficiency and pay for themselves very quickly.
Not all energy is equal in carbon terms, and we have to remember that:
- Oil and gas have a low carbon intensity and are comparatively cheap.
- Mains electricity is higher-priced and produce much more carbon emissions.
- Compressed air is the most expensive form of energy on the majority of industrial sites.
