Episode 3 – How to Work out the Carbon Footprint of a Business?

The journey begins… and there seemed no better place to start than working out what I’m currently responsible for emitting. This episode lays out how I went about working out the carbon footprint of my three businesses, and throws a few lessons that I learnt along the way in the mix. This episode would have saved me a hell of a lot more time whilst doing my carbon audit than it would have taken to listen to it!
