What we do
Planet Positive supports companies to build a roadmap to carbon neutrality and implement an action plan to measure and reduce the carbon footprint while engaging customers, employees and partners.
Carbon footprint measurement
We support you to calculate and report your business footprint across Scope 1, 2, and 3 within the Greenhouse Gas Protocol – the world’s most used greenhouse gas accounting standard. The GHG standard is used for emissions management from company operations and value chain.
Setting reduction targets
We identify key impact areas of your business that produce the most emissions and help you set reduction targets, following the Science-Based Targets methodology. We support you to reduce your impact across the entire value chain by providing day-to-day reduction guidelines.
After taking steps to reduce your footprint, we help you offset unavoidable emissions by choosing certified carbon reduction projects from the United Nations Carbon Offset program. Alternatively, we can help you find an offset project in your area to maximise your local impact.
Stakeholder engagement strategy
We support you with communicating your efforts to your customers, employees, and partners in order to build trust and raise awareness about climate change. We do so via training & education, and communication guidelines tailored to your needs.

A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by an individual, event, organization, service, place or product, expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e)
Carbon neutrality is a state of net-zero carbon dioxide emissions. This can be achieved by balancing emissions of carbon dioxide with its removal (often through carbon offsetting) or by eliminating emissions from the atmosphere
Carbon offsetting is a method to compensate for a company’s or individual’s CO2 emissions by contributing to climate-friendly projects. The total carbon footprint is offset by purchasing an equivalent amount of carbon credits in a project that reduces or captures CO2 from the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting is an effective tool to manage a company’s impact on the climate when coupled together with proactive efforts to reduce the footprint in the first place.
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) is one of the most widely used emissions reporting standards – it requires companies to break down their emissions into three categories, or scopes. Scope 1 emissions are those produced on a company’s site or directly by vehicles or power sources it owns; scope 2 emissions are those resulting from electricity purchased by the company; and scope 3 emissions are those occurring as a result of its activities but from sources a company does not own or control.
The calculation process is fairly straightforward. It depends on the accessibility and quality of the data necessary to calculate the carbon footprint and can take anywhere from 1-2 months for a small organization. Setting carbon reduction targets and engaging stakeholders is part of a long-term carbon management strategy and can take a longer time to execute.
The cost for carbon management services depends on many variables, such as selected Scopes for reporting within the GHG protocol, accessibility and quality of data needed for the calculations, as well as stakeholder engagement activities, such as trainings or workshops.

All companies produce a carbon footprint through their daily operations, assets they own or control, the electricity they consume, as well as other activities throughout their value chain. Theferefore, any company can calculate their footprint and start taking climate action.
