Why do a carbon footprint?

What is a carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint establishes the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by the activities of your organisation's business activity. As global warming accelerates and the pressure rises on companies to help reduce emissions, this is becoming a key tool for you to run a sustainable and successful business.

Why do one now?

  • Your stakeholders expect you to. From your customers to your staff, they all expect you to know how much you pollute and reduce your planetary impact.
  • You could save money. If you know where you use the most energy for example, you can reduce your emissions and lower your costs at the same time.
  • Soon, you might have to do it. Legislation is catching up and making it mandatory for businesses around the world to measure their carbon emissions

How does Sweep help HP Amplify Impact partners?

Sweep is available for all HP Amplify Impact partners. For HP Changemakers, it is a specific initiative in their Sustainability Plan in the Planet section. For them, the minimum requirement is to (1) complete a carbon footprint analysis and (2) set a reduction goal. You can do both in Sweep.

  1. Carbon footprint analysis: ‘Measure’ in Sweep allows you to track your business activity and understand how much greenhouse gas that activity emits. Sweep will automatically generate a carbon footprint report compliant with the latest standards.
  2. Set a reduction goal: With ‘Targets’ in Sweep, it’s easy to set carbon reduction targets that are compliant with the latest science, and track your progress against them.

Once you’ve completed your footprint and set your targets, you can download a report from Sweep, which you can then submit via the HP Amplify Impact portal as proof of execution.

What does it cost?

HP Amplify Impact partners get a healthy discount to get access to all the features in the Sweep software, with some extra goodies thrown on top.

FAQs

How long does it take to implement the Sweep carbon footprint and action plan?

Like all carbon footprint projects, there is an intensive data collection element, so we estimate 5-10 days to collect the data and move it into Sweep. This depends on the size of your company, what data you have readily available, and how much can be automated with your existing systems.

Who on my team should be in charge of this?

You decide. Some companies have dedicated staff for carbon management, while in others the CSR department is in charge, or it falls under finance (where they already do financial accounting and have a lot of the numbers already to hand). In the end, what’s most important is that whoever manages it has the bandwidth and the access to the right people and systems to gather the necessary data.

What kind of data do I need to create a carbon footprint?

Sweep will ask you for a wide range of business data, including information from your operations (boilers, trucks, chemical reactions, waste, air conditioning, fridges etc.) and your energy consumption (electricity, heating, etc.). The table below gives you a snapshot of what data is needed for a state of the art footprint.

Scope 1

  • Fuel combustion in fixed sources (e.g boilers)
  • Fuel combustion in mobile sources (e.g. trucks)
  • Emissions from industrial processes (e.g. chemical reaction, waste management)
  • Refrigerant fluid leakage (e.g. air conditioning, fridges)
  • Direct land use change due to your organisation’s activities (e.g. arable land converted to parking)

Scope 2

  • Energy consumed (e.g. coal, solar, renewable)

Scope 3 (optional)

  • Distance covered by staff (e.g. commuting, business travel)
  • Weight & distance covered by goods procured
  • Quantity of raw material & parts procured by your organisation

How secure is my information?

Sweep is built with the security requirements of enterprise companies in mind. From single-sign on to state of the art security, you’re in control of who accesses your data and who you share it with. You can read more about our privacy policy here.

Can I automate data collection?

Sweep is all about making data collection easy, whether it’s entering it manually or adding it automatically. Your developers can connect Sweep to your systems with our powerful suite of APIs. And we’re constantly adding new integrations, like our cloud connector, that allows you to calculate emission from your cloud services like AWS or Azure automatically.

What if I don’t have access to a specific data point?

In short: Get all the data you can, but don’t worry if some is missing at the start. The tool can help you create estimates for business activity where you have little or inaccurate data. However, the more granular your information, the easier it will be to reduce your footprint, because Sweep will help you identify exactly where most emissions come from, and can help understand how to reduce them.

How do I start my carbon footprint from scratch on Sweep?

You don't know exactly where to start? The kick-start survey is here to help you build a first footprint from scratch. Once you have created your account, you will have access to the survey. With your answers, Sweep will then automatically generate a first footprint that accounts for your direct emissions, and guide you how to go deeper from there.

Can I integrate an existing carbon footprint in Sweep?

Yes. If you have previously calculated your footprint, you can easily integrate that in Sweep to analyze your progression towards your targets over time.

In the Measure section, you can either integrate your existing footprint manually or by importing a file with your activity data. You will find all the guidance needed in our documentation. You can also contact our carbon team for a demo or some support.

I'm a large enterprise customer with distributed teams and complex data systems, can you still help me?

Yes! Sweep is particularly powerful for larger organisations, who can benefit from powerful data automation, a host of enterprise features (such as permission workflows or sub-accounts), and additional support resources from our teams. Get in touch via hp@sweep.net and we can talk you through how we can help.

I'm a large enterprise customer with different needs, will I pay the same amount and have access to the same features?

Sweep offers a discount on our base plan for HP Amplify Impact partners. For larger companies that might need more seats, require more complex data automation, or need custom emission factors, our team can create a bespoke proposal to make sure you get the most out of your climate programme.

What languages is Sweep available in?

Right now, Sweep is available in English only. We’ll be adding more languages later this year.
