We help companies and organisations to respond to the challenges posed by climate change both by understanding the impacts associated with their activities and identifying exposure to climate-risks, and by defining a medium/long term strategy to respond to the impacts identified. Effective communication and the involvement with different stakeholders are key for the successful implementation of this strategy.


The Calculation of the Carbon Footprint is the first step for the organisation to understand the impact of its activities, and to start the process of reducing emissions. Disclosure of Carbon Footprint Calculations is increasingly required of companies, becoming an additional reporting requirement in an already diverse and dense set of information to be disclosed by companies.

Carbon Footprint reporting scopes:

Scope 1

Direct emissions associated with emission sources owned or controlled by the company.

Scope 2

Indirect emissions associated with the acquisition and use of electricity, heat, and steam by the company.

Scope 3

Other indirect emissions, as a result of the company’s activities but which occur at sources not owned or controlled by the company.

How can Systemic help?

Firstly, we help the company to decide the scope of the Carbon Footprint Calculation assessment that best fits its needs, considering the strategic and reporting objectives already defined by the client. We adjust the reality of each client to the requirements of the carbon footprint calculation, ensuring an exhaustive mapping of the emissions sources associated with the client’s specific activity. We ensure an adjustment to the requirements and criteria defined in the context of the GHG Protocol standard “A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard“, thus allowing an alignment with the reporting of numerous existing guidelines, sectoral directives, and regulations. The work we undertake is aligned with the 5 basic rules contemplated in the GHG Protocol: Relevance / Completeness / Consistency / Transparency / Accuracy.


The climate crisis is not just about saving the planet, it is about safeguarding our economies, our societies, and human civilization.

Working to reduce and neutralise the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with your business is no longer an altruistic act. It is now, more than ever, about the competitiveness of companies.

Portugal and the European Union have committed to the goal of Climate Neutrality by 2050, a promise linked to the European Climate Act, launched in 2020, which corroborates the words that Mark Carney, then president of the Bank of England, uttered in 2019: “Companies that ignore the climate crisis will go bankrupt“.

How can Systemic help?


Calculate the Carbon Footprint
Identify and calculate the sources of GHG emissions associated with the company’s activity.

  • Switch to renewable energy sources;
  • Consume more efficiently;
  • Adopt new technologies.


Define emission reduction strategies
Identify opportunities to prevent, reduce and eliminate GHG emission sources within the value chain.


Set science-based targets
Identify reduction targets that ensure emission reductions consistent with the level of decarbonisation required to limit global warming to 1.5°C or well below 2°C, and define an implementation plan.


Implement and monitor the plan
Implement the emissions reduction plan and define a strategy to monitor the reductions achieved.


Offset unavoidable emissions
Offset the remaining emissions by purchasing high quality carbon credits from certified entities.
