In the realm of emissions reporting, numerous frameworks cater to organisations' needs for disclosing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, an important gap persists - the absence of a structured framework for organisations to report on their air pollution emissions. Adding to this landscape, the recent adoption of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards now requires EU companies to report on their air pollution data.
The webinar will present the Air Pollution Footprint Partnership (APFP) scheme whose core purpose is to address this gap. Functioning as an online platform, the APFP is the first-of-its-kind reporting framework that enables organisations to calculate their air pollution footprint using the same data for their GHG reporting. With the capabilities to understand the contributions of their operations to air pollution, organisations have the evidence and insight to strategically target policies, demonstrate their dedication to sustainable business practices, and improve their ESG profile and investment credentials.
