Since December 2019, our world has changed dramatically. In light of a shared enemy, governments, businesses, schools, communities, and individuals put their self-interests aside to follow directions from the planet’s leading experts. When the experts told us to isolate, we listened. When the experts told businesses to send employees home, they listened. When the experts told governments to close the boarders, they listened. So why, when the experts tell us to make substantial changes in light of climate change, do we fail to listen?
While we celebrate our wins against coronavirus, we must not forget that humanity faces another crisis, one for which there is no vaccine. There is no quick fix or easy solution for climate change, but many of the lessons we learnt during this pandemic can help us with the fight against it. We must listen to the experts, work together, and make sacrifices, in order to measure, manage, and mitigate global warming.
Without measuring, we live in ignorance and denial of what surrounds us. If we didn’t test and measure coronavirus cases, we could not have managed and mitigated the effects of the pandemic. The same rules apply for climate change.
To prevent the certainty of mass extinction and environmental devastation that will result from more than 2oC of global warming, we must measure our greenhouse gas emissions. Only then can we understand the damaging gasses that we produce, and in turn manage, minimise, and mitigate our effect on the climate.
At ESI Monitor, it is our mission to support you to understand the full extent of your carbon footprint, and help you to eliminate it. We cannot change the past, but we can build a better future, together.
Achieving sustainability is much like effective pandemic prevention; it is a global effort. It requires healthy ecosystems; a greater respect for animals and the environment; and regular measurement, management, and adaptation from all. With our Environmental Business Operations Framework, we make this easy and valuable to you. The framework is broken down into 5 modules that are each designed to build the most important foundations that enable your organisation to transition towards environmental sustainability.
The first module of the Framework enables you to measure your carbon footprint in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (the internationally recognised standard for carbon footprints), and ISO 14064. This is also where you create your ‘green team’ of staff that will act as your champions for each specific area of measurement.
The second module walks you through creating a sustainability statement and commitments to the best international goals of your choice (from the SDGs, to the Paris Agreement, CDP, and TCFD).
In the third module, we support you in creating an action plan to begin your organisation’s adaption to environmentally sustainable practices in waste, energy, travel, value chain, education, and offsetting. This is supported by our resource library and our expertise in the field of environmental management.
The fourth module is then another footprint measurement designed to show the impact of the implementation of your action plans in module 3.
And finally, module 5 is built to help keep sustainability on the agenda by creating a space to track actions and implementation, facilitate the organisation of the green team, and commitments to regular measurement and management of your environmental footprint.
