A robust emissions measurement model based on real data
How does CarbonInvoice measure and track emissions?
To calculate a business's total carbon intensity, CarbonInvoice uses official location specific Industry Standard Emissions Factors and analyses a business’s accounting data into carbon categories, in alignment with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory.
CarbonInvoice then apportions a business’ carbon intensity on a per-invoice basis in order to mitigate the intensity at the invoice level.
In order to keep this calculation up to date and automatically mitigate emissions at the invoice level, CarbonInvoice maintains a connection to the business accounting ledger.
Real impact through tangible carbon removal mechanisms
How does CarbonInvoice reduce my business’ carbon intensity?
CarbonInvoice works with trusted and credible partners in the climate space. We have partnered with Trees That Count and Carbon Positive Australia for the funding of native tree planting to enable the mitigation of a business carbon footprint over 50 years from planting.
Planting trees is a tangible and robust carbon removal mechanism, which we and our customers strongly believe in, specifically native trees. Moreover, by supporting native tree planting, Positive Businesses not only reduce their carbon footprint but help strengthen biodiversity and support communities to thrive.
How much does it cost for my business?The CarbonInvoice app is free to measure your carbon footprint. You only pay when you decide to fund the planting of native trees to mitigate your client projects. For any trees funded we charge a 20% fee on top for sourcing, quality assurance, administration and reporting. The overall costs for your business will depend on your business' actual carbon intensity and the client projects you do. Based on industry averages, professional services firms require 0.1%-0.3% of their annual revenue to cover these costs of carbon mitigation. The table below illustrates the associated costs for firms of varying annual revenue sizes. These figures are examples and may not represent your actual figures, which depend on your own business' carbon intensity.

We charge a 20% fee on top of the tree costs for sourcing, quality assurance, administration and reporting. We bill all customers on a monthly basis, there is no lock-in and you can leave at any time.

I'm a small business, isn't my carbon footprint insignificant?Different businesses create different amounts of carbon, depending on their industry, type of business and how they operate. For professional services businesses generally most of your emissions are driven by the following: (1) The resources that you and your people use in your day to day work. Electricity, commuting and produce waste. These are required to run your services firms, whether you’re working from home or office. (2) Software and electronic equipment, office equipment. Going paperless does not mean you have no emissions. By way of example, an average business’ email usage per year creates as much carbon as an international flight (3) The suppliers you purchase products and services from and their downstream supply chain emissions - including product, manufacturing, retail and other professional services businesses. Additionally, your clients and prospects will want to understand their entire supplier footprint whatever the size of your emissions. CarbonInvoice has many smaller customers with 1-20 FTEs, we can all play our part. Why not measure it for free and quantify the size of your footprint? This gives you confidence in this claim and evidence you can use.
Why does CarbonInvoice focus on professional services businesses?Small and medium sized businesses represent about 90% of businesses and more than 50% of employment worldwide. But the contribution they make and the impact they have on driving positive social, environmental and economic change is often ignored. Small and medium sized businesses, including professional services firms, have a significant impact on the planet’s emissions, accounting for 30%+ of total greenhouse gas emissions. But they have been largely underserved in their efforts to take accountability and reduce their carbon impact, or even know where to start. CarbonInvoice is designed for professional services businesses who care about their business and care about the planet. Those who want to make a tangible impact and share their positive story and and that are looking for an immediate and accessible way to get started on their climate journey. Professional services are businesses that provide their customers with intangible products or services and expertise, usually based on selling their knowledge or their time. Examples include recruitment agencies, consultants, digital agencies, lawyers, accountants, architects, financial services and many more.
