10 Reasons Net0 Is the Best Carbon Accounting Platform 
Contents

Carbon accounting is the only way to start lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at your company. Net0 makes carbon accounting a positive and simple experience. It is so easy to use that you can get multiple team members involved so everyone can do their part, taking the weight off of managing it all at once or with expensive consultancies. If you want to see CO2 emissions diminish at your company, ensure that your company is doing what is best for the environment, comply with shifting government regulations, please eco-friendly consumers, and provide a transparent system of reporting, then using Net0 carbon accounting platform is the best solution. We'll show you the 10 most important details about Net0's platform and how it is going to benefit your carbon reduction strategy.

1. Straightforward dashboard

Net0 is designed and organized for the customers' best user experience in mind. Team members that companies add can include colleagues or even vendors, all have a personal dashboard where their data additions contribute to the whole company's platform. It's the only platform necessary to calculate, reduce, offset, certify, and report emissions. You can analyze by dates, specific movements, and vendors all in one place. We'll show you the details of the platform more in-depth, in the list below.

The dashboard on your home screen will show you your emissions by type in kgs and percentages, your overall carbon footprint in different categories, total offset emissions, emissions by vendor, and any notifications that encourage your journey to net zero

By seeing your carbon footprint laid out on a single screen it's easier to see the big picture as to where the most emissions are coming from and how you can improve them. It's also convenient for all of the team members to see what the company's carbon footprint is all in one place and how actions can be taken.

2. Automated data capture

You can upload utility bills, invoices, and any other forms and Net0 will use automation to capture the data so you don't have to add it manually. Depending on the date given, Net0 can measure and calculate any of the 3 emission scopes.

Adding carbon emissions can be a smooth process that is time efficient with Net0's AI core. The data fills in immediately so that your company's emissions are automatically measured. 

3. Easily add emissions 

You can either add emissions data by uploading forms for automated data capture as described above, or, you can add the data manually in minutes. You can add sites and vehicles for internal emissions and Net0 will calculate and measure your emissions off of the data you provide. 

This takes the mystery out of knowing how much CO2 your company is actually emitting without having to call in outside consultants or hire new help. You always know what is going on in real-time.

4. Effectively add vendors

Any member of your team can add vendors so when you analyze your emissions you know how much of your carbon footprint is coming from what vendor. 

This will help especially with scope 3 emissions - the CO2 emissions that happen outside of the company by assets the company doesn't own - which are the hardest emissions to measure.

5. Quickly include team members

Net0 enables businesses to add colleagues and vendors (as team members) to their accounts with their own personal dashboards. 

When everyone on the team contributes to the carbon accounting system, incorporating carbon accounting into the business' everyday routine becomes easy and not just a task that one person needs to be responsible for.
