Global services and infrastructure company

Verco identified both the product and organisation's carbon footprint through data collection, calculation and verification of the Group’s scope 1 and 2 emissions in accordance with GHG protocols. ESG targets were set out to 2025 and 2030.

The company operates in Europe, China and Australasia. With Verco's help, they have managed to raise sustainability linked financing to achieve their objectives.


  • The company required support with the development of a roadmap to net zero carbon as part of a new sustainability and ESG strategy. Our analysis and advice allowed the business to set ambitious targets and KPIs for inclusion in the 2020 Sustainability and ESG report.


  • Mobilisation of environmental data platform
  • Engagement with regional data owners

  • Data collection

  • Organisational and product carbon footprint calculations

  • Target setting

  • Support with third party assurance of GHG baseline and KPIs


This is an ongoing project which started in March 2021.


The company has been able to raise significant sustainability-linked financing to achieve the performance objectives that we helped develop. The business now has an externally assured GHG emissions baseline against which future performance will be measured, a whole life carbon footprint for their most popular product, and a roadmap to net zero carbon with defined milestones in 2025 and 2030. Carbon Desktop was used as the platform to collect and report data for this outcome.
