Humans hold the solution to global warming because it is our actions that have created the situation in the first place. By reducing our carbon footprint and working to create low carbon societies we can cut down on harmful greenhouse gases and limit the destructive effects of climate change. 

This is where Greenly comes in - we’re on a mission to help businesses understand and reduce their carbon footprint, and our new Climate App Store makes the whole process easier than ever before. With just one click you can access sector-specific applications designed to help you measure, understand, and reduce your emissions. 

👉 In this article we’ll explore Greenly’s new Climate App Store, and discover the different tools available to help companies reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the fight against climate change.

Why companies need to be part of the climate solution

The United Nations and climate scientists are increasingly sounding the alarm when it comes to climate change - we’ve been told time and time again that the opportunity to correct course is running out and that the world is edging increasingly closer to catastrophic tipping points. But it often feels as though these warnings fall on deaf ears. 

It’s now or never, if we want to limit global warming to 1.5℃. Without immediate and deep emissions reductions across all sectors, it will be impossible.” - IPCC Working Group III Co-Chair Jim Skea.

But all is not lost, because there is still time. Limiting global warming to under 1.5℃ is still possible if we take collective and concrete climate action to gradually eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. This means that governments, individuals and companies alike need to act now. 

👉 Companies have a crucial role to play in the fight against climate change. Without their efforts to reduce carbon emissions it won’t be possible to reach net zero. This is because companies are responsible for a large portion of global greenhouse gas emissions - as much 71% of global greenhouse gas emissions is thought to come from only 100 companies!

Greenly is here to help

Most companies and organisations are aware that they need to take steps to cut down on their environmental footprint - sometimes a country’s regulations may even require it. However, this also means that the business landscape has never been more complex. 

A mix of stakeholder expectations, investor pressure, environmental risks and opportunities, and growing regulatory requirements have muddied the landscape and many companies feel overwhelmed and unsure as to where to even start. 

The good news is that companies like Greenly are here to help, making understanding carbon emissions and formulating effective plans to reduce them as easy and pain free as possible. Greenly’s Climate Store App was created to provide affordable solutions to understand and quantify emissions.

Greenly’s Climate App Store

In this section we’ll cover everything you need to know about Greenly’s exciting new climate tools.

What is the Greenly App Store?

Greenly’s Climate App Store focuses solely on applications that help companies measure, understand, and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. 

👉 Our apps cover a variety of different activities and can be used regardless of company size or sector. Head over to our Climate App Store to explore what's on offer.

The difference between the Climate App Store and Greenly’s Carbon Footprint Assessment

One of the main services that Greenly provides is carbon footprint assessments. Our carbon footprint assessments allow small and medium size companies to easily calculate their greenhouse gas emissions, and to build custom action plans with the help of our climate experts, to reduce their carbon footprint. 

👉 Knowledge is power. In order to effectively cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, it’s first essential to understand where these emissions come from. Once a company is armed with this information they can then develop an effective plan to reduce these emissions. 

Greenly’s Climate App Store on the other hand, is designed to provide more specific information. The sector specific applications help companies to analyse their emissions related to specific activities. For example, companies operating within the events industry can use our ‘Event Calculator’ app to measure the footprint of specific events; companies who rely on transportation to deliver their goods may choose to use our ‘Freight Calculator’ app to estimate emissions associated with their transportation and logistics activities. 

Despite the differences, the aims of both the Carbon Footprint Assessment and the Climate Store App are the same:  

  • Encourage as many companies as possible to join the fight against climate change and to start their journey to net zero; 
  • Help companies comply with increasingly strict environmental and sustainability regulations;
  • Provide a user-friendly experience with intuitive solutions;
  • Deliver cost-effective services.

How does the Climate App Store work?

Step 1: create an account

The Climate App Store is a catalogue of free and paid applications created by our team of climate experts. 

But in order to access this incredible resource companies must first create an account to access the catalogue of applications. It's a very simple process that only requires your contact information - ie. your name, email, phone, and company name. 

Once you’ve completed this simple step, you’ll be able to explore the full catalogue and access detailed descriptions of Greenly’s applications to help you select the one that is most relevant and helpful to your company.

Step 2: select the right calculator

Greenly’s Climate App Store catalogue offers a wide range of applications that cater to the needs of different sectors. You’ll be able to select an application from one of the following eight categories:

General Apps

  • Quick Carbon Calculator - This application enables companies to quickly and easily calculate the overall CO2 emissions linked to their office, travel, vehicle fleet and operations. 
  • Offset Marketplace - No matter how much we try to eliminate emissions, some are simply unavoidable. Companies can choose to compensate for this by offsetting their emissions. Greenly’s Offset Marketplace details certified carbon offset projects that companies can select in order to offset their unavoidable emissions.

Compliance and Reporting:

  • There are a number of regulations that require companies to provide information such as their greenhouse gas emissions, their ESG data, and environmental and sustainability disclosure information. Greenly offers a variety of export apps to help streamline this process. Our apps allow companies to easily upload the information required by regulations such as the SECR, CSRD, TCFD, and CDP.

Digital and Tech

  • Digital activities are often overlooked when it comes to carbon emissions, but these activities can be responsible for a significant portion of a company’s emissions. This is why Greenly has developed applications to help website owners, developers, and digital advertisers to measure the environmental impact of their online presence.

Industry

  • For companies operating in the industry sector we’ve created a range of apps to help understand the environmental impact of their different activities. For example apps that calculate emissions related to real estate projects, mining projects, and even the environmental impact of individual products (incorporating the entirety of their lifecycle).

Event and Tourism

  • Calculating the environmental impact of events can be complex, but Greenly is here to make the whole process straightforward with our range of calculators that allow companies to measure the impact of their events and conferences.

Logistic and Mobility

  • For many companies logistics and transportation make up a large portion of their carbon footprint, whether this is from freight transportation, business trips overseas, or even the charging of company electric vehicles. Our logistic and mobility apps allow companies to estimate the impact of these activities.

Integrations

  • Greenly’s smart technology integrates with many existing applications used by companies, allowing emissions data to be tracked in real time.

Finance

  • Sustainable finance has never been more important, and Greenly’s is here to help investors analyse the carbon footprint of their portfolios. Or, if you’re a company looking to implement a sustainability strategy our ROI Calculator can help estimate the financial benefits.

Step 3: measure emissions

Once you’ve chosen an application, your company will then need to provide the requested data in order to receive the company’s detailed carbon footprint. Depending on the selected application, different types of data will need to be provided, for example: the number of company employees, transport vehicles, frequency of business travel, etc.

Step 4: take action

Measuring greenhouse gas emissions is just the first step in a company’s journey to net zero. It provides a company with the information needed to take effective action to reduce their carbon footprint. 

So what comes next? 

  • Exporting the results - with just a few clicks, a company can share their results with their employees. This helps to raise awareness about the company’s carbon footprint and the most carbon intensive activities. It’s a great first step in engaging your workforce and encourages employees to start thinking about how they can contribute to the company’s climate journey. 
  • Analyse the results - calculating your carbon footprint is only useful if you act on the information. This means that companies need to analyse the results to better understand what activities are creating emissions. Once you have a better understanding of the company’s carbon footprint you can develop an effective emissions reduction plan. 

👋 Good to know: You can rely on Greenly’s data - our calculations are based on recognised databases, such as ADEME and the GHG Protocol.

What are the benefits of using Greenly’s Climate App Store?

Become part of the solution

We’ve already talked about how it's essential that we limit global warming to 1.5°C. Failure to do so will have devastating effects for our world. This is why ambitious national and global targets are being put in place, and why governments are increasingly asking companies to play their part in the transition to net zero emissions. 

Greenly’s Climate App Store aims to make it easier than ever before, for companies of all sizes, and from all sectors to play their part. By calculating emissions and taking steps to reduce them, companies can become part of the solution instead of being part of the problem.

👉 Developers, would you like to contribute to the climate movement? Use our developer toolbox to create your own application or plugin. Once developed, simply submit your creation to our experts and become one of our partners.

Cost savings

Besides helping the environment, companies that use the Climate App Store applications can also benefit from significant cost savings - something that’s becoming increasingly important in today’s economic climate. 

For a start, many of the applications found within the Climate App Store allow companies to access a free estimation of their emissions. But even where the application is paid, we’ve worked hard to ensure that the cost is highly competitive compared to other solutions on the market. 

But looking beyond Greenly’s competitive prices, companies can also expect to make operational cost savings when they take action to reduce their emissions.

Stay ahead of regulations

In recent years, environmental regulations have increased in scope. Increasing numbers of companies are now required to provide information on their carbon emissions, their ESG practices, their environmental risk and exposure etc. And while this is great news for the environment, it also presents a number of challenges for companies that have not yet integrated environmental and sustainability considerations into their operations.

Calculating carbon emissions through the applications found in Greenly’s Climate App Store is the first step in a company's environmental journey. Armed with this data, an organisation can implement effective ESG and sustainability policies, helping them to stay one step ahead of regulations. 

What's more, is that some of our applications are designed to make regulation compliance easier and more streamlined. Our apps facilitate the collation of a company's ESG data in order to create a non-financial report that is compliant with regulations such as the CSRD, TCFD, etc.

👉 Head over to the Climate App Store to discover all of the applications available.
