Measuring, reporting and managing carbon and energy data is becoming more important for today’s suppliers and buyers.
Brands and corporate buyers are seeking more reliable and comparable data from more suppliers, to substantiate their public sustainability claims and to manage exposure to future costs.
For manufacturers, it is becoming a valuable business asset to have a full picture of the carbon footprint and energy performance- to reinforce relations with key buyers and raise market profile on the one hand, and reduce operating costs on the other.
RESET understands supplier needs and supplier budgets – we build carbon inventories for individual factories or supplier portfolios and help our clients capture, monitor and report this data to stakeholders.
Supplier-driven: Facility Carbon Footprinting
Establishing a solid greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory, known as a carbon footprint, is the first step to improving your business’ carbon performance and energy efficiency. Our team will work with factory staff to build a carbon footprint to international standards (such as ISO 14064 or GHG Protocol) and in accordance with the requirements or scorecards of clients’ major buyers. With the footprint result and our practical training, suppliers will be able to report carbon emissions to buyers and continue tracking and reporting in-house into the future, whether using spreadsheets, existing IT systems or our online CarbonSystems software.

In order to maintain high data accuracy and effective monitoring and reporting of energy consumption and carbon performance, RESET works with CarbonSystems—a market-leading carbon and energy data accounting platform - to provide suppliers with a Chinese-English bilingual tool to keep track of all facility footprint data.
