Our Methodology

At EcoHedge, we believe that small businesses can become heroes in the fight against climate change. That's why we've developed carbon accounting software that makes it easy for them to measure and track their emissions.

Our methodology is underpinned by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the gold standard for greenhouse gas accounting. This ensures that our calculations are consistent and reliable.

We also have a team of experts who are constantly reviewing and refining our methodology to ensure that it stays up-to-date with the latest science and best practices.

    Works some magic in the background

    Imagine it as a magical toolbox that transforms the simple numbers of your spending into an exciting estimation of carbon dioxide equivalents.

    We call this the 'spend-based' method of estimating emissions, a nifty term we borrowed from the GHG Protocol. It's like converting your shopping receipts into climate impact numbers!

    We gather data from different, trusted, GHG Protocol aligned sources to help with our calculations and reports.

    Then we dive a little deeper into your data

    For certain aspects of the GHG emissions protocol, like energy usage or vehicle usage, we've found that an activity-based method can be more accurate than a spend-based one. It's like comparing a GPS to a treasure map; both can lead to the treasure, but one just might be a little more precise!

    So, we roll up our detective sleeves and ask a handful of questions related to your business activities. Don't worry, we won't interrogate you under a bright light! These are just simple queries to help our system understand your business better.

    EcoHedge allows users to input activity based information.
