The reality for most professional services organisations engaged in supporting their clients’ business transformations is that the greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction impact that they can have with their clients can potentially be hundreds of times their own operational footprints.

It is imperative that organisations have a robust mechanism for measuring the impact they affect with their clients.

Created in collaboration with Forum for the Future, this report, Measuring Impact: A Methodology to Inform Transformative Project Design, seeks to stimulate an important debate about how professional services companies and other organisations working to deliver sustainable outcomes for their clients can meaningfully measure these impacts. It introduces the GHG Impact Methodology for calculating the GHG emissions either during the design phase or at the end of a project, empowering organisations to optimise business projects and maximise their sustainability impact.

The GHG Impact Methodology provides a five-step approach for calculating the carbon impact of projects. By providing greater guidance to organisations delivering projects, which could have either a positive or negative sustainability impact, the methodology aims to enable more accurate and meaningful decision-making throughout the lifecycle of the project, during design, development, and implementation.
