Making business

  • Produce, professional, fully compliant statutory reporting with just a few clicks
  • Create custom internal reporting directly from your dashboards to support the broader ownership of Net Zero across your operations.

Detailed emissions reporting

Detailed emissions reporting across all 3 scopes

Invariable companies start with Scopes 1&2 but, very quickly, need to start looking at their, more complex, Scope 3 emissions. notch allows users to expand their reporting simply and easily. From ‘dipping a toe’ into Scope 3 reporting to being fully emersed and reporting all emissions across all relevant Scope 3 categories. Highly customisable, notch allows users to create the exact emissions they need to report and, using our analytics suite, create bespoke reporting to measure emissions and support mitigation plans.

Scaleable across your organisation

Net Zero is, ultimately, something that has to become part of ‘how a business operates’. It means that GHG emissions reporting has to become something that is embedded and owned across all parts of the business. The notch platform is fully scalable, with 4 levels of operational reporting, to allow you to report GHG emissions fully aligned to your operations. It’s easy and simple to create a reporting structure and to update date as your organisational structure evolves over time

Fully international

notch already supports large businesses with operations in multiple countries across the world. The platform is designed to fully support multi-country operations. Allowing local operations to report in local units (e.g. km or miles) and to consolidate reporting back to the reporting units of the relevant Division or Corporate country.

Produce statutory or custom stakeholder reporting

Compliance and communication are vital aspects of targeting Net Zero. The notch platform allow you to:

  • Produce, professional, fully compliant statutory reporting with just a few clicks
  • Create custom internal reporting directly from your dashboards to support the broader ownership of Net Zero across your operations.

Full Carbon Planning directly in the platform

Once you’ve measured your GHG emissions the next step is to create and implement plans to mitigate emissions. The new notch Carbon Planning module allows users to:

  • Create specific plans for chosen emission types by a single or multiple site
  • Assign these actions to a specific site(s) to drive ownership
  • Choose action that either ‘reduce’ emissions directly or ‘switch’ activity to a lower carbon alternative (e.g. from diesel to EV cars)
  • Create short, medium or long term plans
  • Our ‘What if’ module allows users to see the impact of various action and then, either save it as a scenario for future review, or create a specific action and add it to your plans
  • Report your progress against your plans. See exactly where you’re achieving or where you need to put more focus

Supply Chain Reporting & Auditing

Larger companies are now driving carbon reporting across their supply chains with many struggling to determine the quality and consistency of reporting. notch allows reporting suppliers to create GHG emissions reporting directly aligned to the reporting requirements of larger business. With each report capable of being reviewed and signed by notch to ensure accuracy and consistency of reporting. Ensuring that larger companies can be sure of the quality of supplier reporting and its use in their own emissions reporting.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the 3 scopes for carbon emissions?

Scope 1 Emissions

These emissions originate from sources that an organisation directly owns or controls. For example, emissions resulting from the combustion of fuel in the organisation’s own fleet of vehicles (assuming they are not electric) are classified under Scope 1.

Scope 2 Emissions

These are emissions that an organisation causes indirectly, which arise from the production of the energy it purchases and consumes. For instance, the emissions generated during the production of electricity used within the organisation’s buildings fall under Scope 2.

Scope 3 Emissions

These encompass all other indirect emissions not covered by Scopes 1 and 2, which occur across the organisation’s value chain. This includes emissions from activities such as the procurement, utilisation, and disposal of products from suppliers. Scope 3 emissions capture all sources not accounted for within the Scope 1 and Scope 2 definitions.

Do I really need a carbon reduction plan?

Yes. Carbon reduction plans have been an optional requirement since 2012 and have over time become more prominent in the procurement process

How much is this going to cost?

Your Carbon Reduction Plan is available as a template that you can complete yourself at no cost. If your business works on a project, or contract basis, then perhaps Carbon Credits through Skoot will provide a lower costing option for you. By 2030, all companies selling into the Public Sector will be required to have Annual Carbon Emission Reporting. The software comes with an annual subscription and you can choose to upload the data yourself, or subscribe to a professional service offered by Tender Response to complete all elements for your business, on your behalf.
