In a world increasingly concerned with environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility, e& enterprise has taken a significant step forward. They recently launched the ‘Sustainability Consultancy Programme’ in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, reaffirming their commitment to a sustainable future. This groundbreaking initiative, unveiled during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), aims to catalyze corporate environmental and social responsibility. In this comprehensive article, we delve into the details of this program, its significance, and how it aligns with global climate action goals.
A Commitment to Sustainability
e& enterprise‘s CEO, Salvador Anglada, describes the Sustainability Consultancy Programme as more than just an initiative; it’s a commitment to a sustainable future. It aligns with the company’s overarching mission to champion global climate action and sustainable economic growth. By providing tools and knowledge to reduce carbon footprints, e& enterprise empowers businesses to create a positive environmental impact.
Comprehensive GHG Management
The Sustainability Consultancy Programme takes a holistic approach to greenhouse gas (GHG) management. It begins with the development of a detailed GHG Inventory, covering Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. The process involves:
- Defining GHG Accounting Boundaries
- Collecting and Estimating Data for Scopes 1 and 2
- Screening and Prioritizing Scope 3 Categories
Setting Reduction Targets
Once the inventory is complete, the program focuses on establishing reduction targets. It identifies emission hotspots, proposes reduction scenarios, and collaborates with stakeholders to finalize targets. The program also supports participants through the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) validation process, providing submission assistance.
Roadmap to Sustainability
The program doesn’t stop at targets. It develops a roadmap and recommends best practices to help companies meet their emission reduction goals. This approach aligns with the trajectory towards sustainability and ensures that participating companies can pursue strategic, sustainable growth.
Enhanced by Technology
It includes a one-month trial of Microsoft Sustainability Manager to enhance the program’s effectiveness. This solution allows organizations to record, report, and reduce their environmental impact across operations and value chains. Additionally, participants get a trial of WWG’s G17Eco platform, featuring 30 ESG metrics and AI-powered sustainability disclosure.
The Sustainability Consultancy Programme offers companies a plethora of strategic benefits:
- Enhancing Commitment to Environmental Stewardship
- Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
- Identifying Emission Reduction Opportunities
- Achieving Operational Efficiencies
- Cost Savings
- Enhancing Brand Image
These assessments go beyond meeting environmental obligations; they become strategic tools for long-term success and a competitive advantage.
