WLT’s simple online emissions audit form is designed to give you and WLT information about the emissions of greenhouse gases that your organisation is responsible for. In order for this information to be useful and to enable us to provide you with feedback, it is important that this form is completed as accurately as possible.
The audit information is focused on energy use (i.e. electricity, gas and other fuels) and business travel. Consequently, the most appropriate person to complete this form will have access to utility bills, as well as records of distances travelled by different forms of transport for business purposes.
Once you have submitted your audit to WLT, we will calculate the GHG emissions associated with your company’s operations and provide you with an audit report which details the volume of offsets required and much it would cost you to achieve these offsets through WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme.
WLT urge all organisations to use energy as efficiently as possible to reduce emissions before offsetting.
We take on trust that your organisation will use Carbon Balanced offsets as part of a broader emissions reduction strategy that, first and foremost, aims to reduce energy consumption where possible. Our emissions reductions page provides links to organisations able to advise you on this.
There is no charge for this service, but we do ask that all organisations requesting an audit submission agree to the following Terms & Conditions for assessing CO2 emissions with the World Land Trust and for use of the ‘Carbon Balanced by WLT’ logo.
