The webinar goes on to illustrate how Compass Group’s use of Ecometrica Sustainability, an accredited CDP Gold Software service, has helped to improve the quality and quantity of collected data; the ease and effectiveness of reporting to the UK’s Mandatory Carbon Reporting legislation using Ecometrica Sustainability; the responses to customer requests for carbon emissions data; and the Group’s submission to the CDP’s climate change programme.
