Track your footprint with our new app

Track your footprint with our new app

Even the smallest businesses produce carbon emissions - whether through powering your properties, running your vehicles or via your supply chain.

Everyday business transactions create carbon emissions. These make up your carbon footprint. Our pilot is a great place to start if you’re not sure how to kick-off your climate journey. It could help you to understand your emissions, what activities produce them, and what actions you could take which may help to reduce your impact.

Initially, we’re trialling the app with up to 500 customers. We’ll use feedback to understand how we can develop it further.

How does the app work?

Our app helps you track your carbon footprint and discover actions you could take to reduce your impact on the environment.

  • We’ll review your transactions to calculate your estimated carbon footprint
  • Get a view of your emissions over time and compare month-on-month
  • See which transactions are contributing most to your carbon emissions to understand where you could take action
  • View suggested actions you could implement in your business to help you reduce your impact
  • Learn more about managing your impact and get support with your climate journey

How you could benefit

  • View your estimated carbon footprint in minutes, at no extra cost
  • Grow your business - cutting emissions could give you a competitive edge by improving your brand image
  • Futureproof your business - climate change will have a dramatic impact on the economy, as the UK works towards making a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030
  • Acting now opens up new opportunities to create value from delivering climate action. Find out more in our A Springboard to Sustainability report.

How is my data used?

  • We work with our trusted partner, Cogo to work out your estimated carbon footprint
  • We securely share your encrypted transaction data with Cogo and only use it to calculate your carbon footprint, we don’t sell it or share it with others
  • Like all carbon footprints, our calculations are an estimate, but underpinned by climate science experts at Cogo
