Managing the reporting and assurance process for your company’s ESG outcomes is difficult at the best of times, and 2020 is set to become even more challenging.
2019 will go down as the year the world announced a clear intent to move to a low-carbon economy. In 2020 governments, institutions and businesses will have to address how they manage this transition in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of their businesses.
One of the key functions of sustainability reporting software like Envizi is to calculate emissions. To do so, we are guided by The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) as it is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. For organizations aiming for Net Zero, understanding how to account for reduced emissions from green power purchases is essential.
Envizi was proud to be a sponsor for the Green Gown Awards, part of the ACTS conference in 2019. The conference highlighted the continued sustainability leadership role that the higher education sector is taking, not only in making bold commitments, but also in taking innovative approaches to disrupt the status quo.

Building rating and emission reporting bodies will grade your organization on its carbon footprint and emissions resulting from electricity consumption. The problem is that all kWh are not created equal.
This year at Envizi we are continuing our support for MedEarth, an Australian charity co-founded by one of Envizi’s senior staff members. MedEarth is saving lives in developing countries, and reducing impact on the environment by recovering and redistributing Australian medical equipment and supplies previously destined for landfill. This grass-roots charity is achieving real outcomes, and I encourage you to support them too.
Don’t believe the hype!
