Frequently asked questions

Find answers to commonly asked questions about our services and initiatives.

How can OCW help my organisation to measure or validate our carbon footprint?

Each organisation has a unique and different carbon footprint. That is why One Carbon World and its team of technical experts can now report on over 7000 calculations. Our team will guide you through this process and will help you to measure your Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. We first invite you to select a date and time for a phone consultation with your dedicated technical expert. During the technical call, our expert will explain the emissions sources that we will include and the methodologies we will apply. We will guide you through the data collection procedure and also review any data you have already collected, if applicable. We always attach a guide for data collection for reference. If you have made a self-assessment of your carbon footprint we will talk you through the OCW UN approved verification process. Once we receive your data, our experienced team of carbon auditors will calculate your carbon footprint, and this will be sent for independent external validation.

What is Net-Zero?

Achieving net-zero involves committing to rebalancing or reducing an organisation’s carbon dioxide emissions to an extent that balances the overall emissions. It is  a strategic approach focused on minimising the net environmental impact, ensuring that the total carbon footprint is effectively counteracted through initiatives like investing in renewable energy projects or adopting nature-based solutions.

Additonally to achieve SBTi's corporate Net-Zero Standard, companies are only considered to have reached net-zero when the following conditions have been met:
Condition 1: (Science-based abatment) : The company's Scope 1,2 + 3 emissions have been reduced to zero or a residual level consistent with reaching net-zero at the global or sector level in eligible 1.5 C - aligned pathways and:
Condition 2: (Neutralisation): the company neutralises any residual emissions at the net-zero target year and any GHG emissions released into the atmosphere thereafter using permanent carbon removals.

What Standards do you offer? (OCW Carbon Neutral International Standard & OCW Net Zero International Standard)

Every organisation that measures/verifies its emissions with One Carbon World, achieves the Carbon Neutral International Standard or the  Net Zero International Standard. Our recognised Carbon Neutral International Standard and Net Zero International Standard are based on a series of steps, and we provide comprehensive support, robust certification and verification, and first-class assessment. There are a set of minimum requirements to achieve the Standard, but we also encourage our partners to adopt best practices where possible, in order to achieve recognition and market-leading status. This means that your organisation will be measuring your emissions to the highest standards of the industry, in line with the Kyoto Protocol and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, as well as meeting the reporting requirements of the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and compatible with international standards ISO 14064 and PAS 2060.

We are committed to facilitating your efforts in contributing to meaningful carbon reduction and projects through our Grant Fund.

What does one tonne of CO2 look like in practical terms?

The carbon footprint is quantified in tonnes of CO2e, and visualising this amount can provide context. Consider the following examples:
- 120,000 smartphone charges.
- Heating an average-sized apartment for two months.
- 72 trips Amsterdam – Paris with the Thalys.
- The amount of CO2 absorbed by a beech tree during around 80 years of growth.
- If one tonne of CO2 were compressed into a gaseous state, the resulting cube would have edges measuring eight metres under normal conditions
