illuminem is proud to partner with Green Future Project (GFP) on a series of webinars, the first of three being held in Italian on June 26th at 4:30 CEST (the following two in English)

To help businesses navigate the challenges of carbon footprint monitoring, GFP is hosting an inaugural webinar focused on effective carbon footprint monitoring. This session will provide practical insights and tools to help companies streamline their carbon tracking processes. The webinar is designed to demystify the complexities of carbon accounting and offer actionable strategies for immediate implementation.

As awareness of the effects and risks of climate change intensifies around the world, businesses face increasing pressure to both monitor and reduce their carbon footprint. On top of that, upcoming EU legislation is set to mandate stricter environmental compliance standards. Clearly, companies can no longer afford to procrastinate on their carbon footprint monitoring.  Green Future Project (GFP) offers comprehensive solutions to streamline precisely this process, ones that will allow businesses to stay ahead of the regulatory curve and on track towards sustainability.

About Green Future Project (GFP)

GFP supports companies with advanced technology to track their environmental impact in real-time. Its mission is to guide companies in a comprehensive and integrated sustainability journey, helping them in decarbonization and to invest in natural capital to mitigate the effects of climate change, preserving the planet for current and future generations. GFP was founded in 2020 after Pietro Pasolini's trip to Ecuador to shoot a documentary on deforestation. Inspired by this experience, he created a platform to connect companies and NGOs worldwide, funding the best climate solutions.

Initially, GFP started with a team of four members working in a small studio in Rome. By 2023, GFP’s positive impact had grown steadily, with 23 active projects in 11 countries. The team integrated innovative satellite technology for monitoring climate projects and, in collaboration with an Oxford University spin-off, developed software to measure CO2e emissions and  utilities consumption in real time.

 GFP offers a complete solution for companies aiming for carbon neutrality. Its SaaS platform helps measure, monitor, and visualise environmental impact, and engages communities in sustainability efforts. GFP is able to simplify seemingly complex challenges through technology, making it easier for companies to generate a positive impact on the planet. By making regenerative measures not only more commonbut also profitable, the Project has been making “sustainable” the new norm.

  • Measure & Reduce: Software to track Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and optimise utilities consumptions (such as energy, water and gas).

  • Offset & Climate Action: High-quality certified carbon credits for offsetting emissions and biodiversity tokens for investing in biodiversity conservation

  • Climate Positive Experience: Engage employees and customers with climate-positive subscriptions and an E-commerce sustainability plugin.

  • Track & Report: Transparent tracking and reporting of climate impact with satellite imagery and real-time updates.

  • Communicate & engage: Customisable tools to showcase sustainability initiatives in line with the brand identity and engage communities.

  • ESG Strategic Advisory: Expert services for sustainable events , carbon footprint analysis, and ESG reporting.

GFP, led by a collective of people passionate about building a world that is more resilient to environmental changes, streamlines the path to sustainability with integrated tools and expert support. This expertise is available completely for free on the occasion of the upcoming webinar.

The urgency of carbon footprint monitoring

The environmental landscape is rapidly evolving, with governments worldwide enacting stricter regulations to curb carbon emissions. For instance, the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will soon require listed companies to provide detailed reports on their sustainability practices, including carbon emissions. Failure to comply could result in significant fines and reputational damage. Preparing for these changes is crucial for any business aiming to remain competitive and compliant.

The value of GFP’s webinar

This webinar is tailored for sustainability and ESG professionals, environmental consultants, SME owners, CFOs, and anyone interested in carbon footprint monitoring and reporting. It will introduce attendees to a more proactive approach to carbon footprint monitoring and reporting, enabling real-time progress tracking. It will highlight emerging reporting directives and frameworks concerning issues for environmental sustainability such as CSRD, CSDDD, ESRS, VSME, and address greenwashing issues. Additionally, we will outline how to simplify the reporting process for SMEs and underscore the importance of leveraging technology for transparency and governance. 

As the GFP’s media partner, illuminem is delighted to share the two top speakers set to lead the webinar:

  • Sara Battistella, Sustainability Consultant at GFP, will cover the basics of sustainability and the importance of assessing and reporting carbon emissions. She will also discuss new reporting directives like CSRD, CSDDD, ESRS, VSME, and greenwashing issues. Her talk will focus on simplified reporting processes and the role of transparency in governance.

  • Stefano Pozzato, Corporate Partnership Manager at GFP, will explain how technology simplifies environmental reporting. He will detail real-time monitoring of carbon emissions and utility consumption, breaking down the carbon footprint calculation process with concrete examples. Stefano will show how technology enhances reporting accuracy and efficiency, aiding compliance and environmental responsibility.

Tracking, reporting, and communicating impact

One of the highlights of the webinar will be Stefano’s run-through of how companies can leverage technology to measure their Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions accurately. By using real-time data, businesses can identify areas for improvement and implement targeted actions to reduce their carbon footprint. This proactive approach not only ensures compliance but also enhances operational efficiency and cost savings. 

With new EU regulations looming, procrastination is no longer an option and being prepared will soon be a necessity. GFP’s webinar will cover essential steps for compliance, including conducting thorough carbon audits and setting realistic reduction targets. In this way, attendees will learn how to integrate these practices into their existing operations seamlessly. Transparency is crucial in today’s business environment. GFP’s platform offers comprehensive tools for tracking, reporting, and communicating climate impact. The webinar will guide attendees on how to leverage these tools to provide transparent  and credible reports to stakeholders, thereby enhancing their sustainability credentials.

The key takeaways

Procrastination in carbon footprint monitoring can lead to serious repercussions. In light of upcoming legislation, businesses need to act now to ensure compliance and contribute to global sustainability efforts. GFP’s webinar offers an opportunity to learn about effective carbon management strategies and tools. By attending, businesses can gain the knowledge and resources needed to stay ahead of regulatory requirements and make meaningful progress on their sustainability journey.
