Northern Powergrid wanted a calculation matrix that would help them identify the carbon/environmental impacts of different stakeholder engagement delivery methods when conducted virtually and physically. Their initial focus was on in-year and business plan engagement.
What we did
We used a two-phased approach:
This desk research identified the elements associated with virtual versus physical engagements and their associated environmental carbon impact.
Key fields such as number of participants and length of engagement can be modified and incorporated with travel information and IT usage, amongst other things, to reflect the engagement under consideration and the associated impact it may have if conducted virtually or in person.
Northern Powergrid has a user-friendly tool which demonstrates the carbon/environmental impact for a range of engagement types when conducted virtually or in person.
