Green Business Awards 2008: Best Micro-organisation - Winner dcarbon8

Growing consensus on the need for large carbon reductions across the economy is fostering a business-focused branch of carbon consulting and dcarbon8 is a small but innovative player in this sector.

The 10-strong company is a specialist in measuring organisational carbon footprints. It has also developed a supply chain network, members of which share knowledge and pledge to measure and reduce emissions and to offset 110% of the remainder so as to become 'planet positive'. The judges felt dcarbon8's focus on embodied carbon in the built environment deserved particular credit.

Best Micro-Organisation (up to 10 employees), specialist consultancy dcarbon8 helps corporations to understand and reduce their carbon emissions. The London-based company was founded in 2006 and is part of a wave of new business development in the field of carbon consulting (see chart).

According to dcarbon8, carbon 'has become the basic unit of environmental performance'.
