Our carbon footprinting software helps you measure, manage and reduce your organisation's carbon footprint.
Footprint Manager offers a cloud-based reporting tool, supported by the Carbon Trust's expertise, which enables an organisation to measure, manage and reduce its carbon footprint.
The tool enables the calculation and recording of direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, along with emissions from business travel (Scope 3).
Footprint Manager helps businesses:
Footprint Manager can be accessed anywhere at any time providing businesses with a flexible but consistent platform for carbon monitoring and reporting.
The cloud-based service enables businesses to easily centralise all recording processes for more efficient and effective monitoring and reporting. No more sending and managing dozens of spreadsheets and updating sheets one at a time. Data can even be linked to SAP or ERP systems, thus saving manual data entry.
Footprint Manager has been specifically developed for reporting to the GHG Protocol, CDP MCR, and the Carbon Trust Standard. This means companies can comply and report to multiple reporting standards and frameworks within one single solution.
Cost of the software is tiered according to size of organisation and number of users so it is financially accessible to SMEs and large corporates alike.
The tool automatically generates reports and graphics and can be specifically tailored to include additional outputs based on client requirements.
Our carbon footprinting software Footprint Expert enables you to produce fast and consistent carbon footprint measurements for products and services.
Footprint Expert 4.0 now fully supports PAS2050:2011 and the GHG Protocol Product standard.

The Carbon Trust are leading experts in product carbon footprinting, having developed the PAS 2050 standard in partnership with the British Standards Institute (BSI) and the UK government. This was the first standard to establish a consistent methodology to assess the greenhouse gas emissions associated with a product or service throughout its entire lifecycle.
In addition, the Carbon Trust set up the first global carbon labelling scheme, the Carbon Reduction Label, which has so far been used by over 90 brands in 19 countries, with a combined annual sales revenue of over £2 billion.
