Ecoveritas operates a highly experienced team in compliance, sustainability and technology development.

Our mission is to make it easy for companies to understand their obligations, get compliant and to respond appropriately through reduction, substitution and recycling.

At Ecoveritas, we love numbers. But maybe not for the reason you would think. Many of our team’s backgrounds before venturing into environmental data collection and analysis range from the studies of classical languages, geography, physics, biology, radiation protection, economics, teaching, retail and foster caring.

We are happy to have a whole analytics and data team ready to make sense of that vast amount of data available. They allow us as a business and our customers to be clear-sighted and take the right packaging decisions based on facts instead of reaching conclusions based on preconceived ideas or subjective “gut feelings”.

Sustainable packaging starts with accurate data

Established in 1999, Ecoveritas has a proud history of supporting brands, retailers and their supply chains with a wide range of environmental compliance data, sustainability consulting and packaging optimisation services.

Ecoveritas Carbon Footprint 2022

Ecoveritas reports its GHG emissions in accordance with the International Greenhouse Gas Protocol – a Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. The data used to evaluate the impact of Ecoveritas activities is collected in an environmental inventory that is updated annually to reflect changes in staff numbers, office space, and internal activities. Maintaining and assessing this information is crucial to identifying and planning relevant measures in line with Ecoveritas’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities. In addition to the mandatory Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) emissions, we also report on the significant Scope 3 emissions from our operations. These emissions include business travel, commuting and waste.

Work-from-home policies were imposed by COVID-19, and today business operations are running at levels akin to those from before the epidemic. As a result, business travel and commuting to work has increased and our overall footprint has risen. Additionally, some homeworking continues and thus in addition to accounting for all our operations, we continue to include emissions from homeworkers in our calculations.[1]

As we are a growing business, full-time staff numbers have risen by 6% in 2022 compared to 2021, this has added some emissions to our total footprint. Due to significantly altered operations brought on by the pandemic, particularly those resulting from commutes and work trips, the emissions were lower in the preceding two years. But as things get going and our business expands, our footprint has slightly increased. The overall footprint in 2022 has therefore increased by 48% to 7.64 tonnes CO2e, and on a per-employee basis by 30%, to around 450kg CO2e generated per FTE.

[1] We followed the methodology to estimate homeworking emissions using the Homeworking Emissions Whitepaper 2020. We also assumed that 75% of employees are working from home. We also decided to use the natural gas conversion factor to estimate the homeworking footprint from heating and use the electricity factor to estimate the home office equipment emissions.

At Ecoveritas, we plan to continue doing a significant amount of work from home, but we will also need to travel more to meetings and to the office. Despite this, the team is committed to minimising its environmental impact by limiting business travel, walking, bicycling, or taking public transportation to work, as well as through a robust recycling programme.

Our company is expanding, therefore soon our emissions will rise even more. As a responsible firm, we are committed to minimising our environmental impact and are investigating various strategies to do so as we advance.
