We make this complex topic simple and accessible to all businesses. Evalue8 is designed to help small to medium sized enterprises by increasing the adoption of new technology and reducing prices.

Our application allows businesses to assess their entire carbon footprint and helps them move towards a zero-carbon future. We enable the important step of measurement to take place easily, effectively and at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.

Evalue8 matches information from your accounting software and other sources to automate carbon tracking and reporting. This enables your carbon emissions reporting to be as up-to-date as your accounting information.

What we do

Evalue8 empowers businesses with the ability to shape the future of our planet through technology. We do this by unlocking the value of carbon accounting to help organisations achieve genuine decarbonisation.

By automating the carbon accounting process and easily identifying cost and energy saving opportunities, Evalue8 allows you to track your emissions and demonstrate your progress.

Our application links to your financial accounts and other sources to enable the measurement of your carbon emissions and provides recommendations on how to reduce your organisation’s impact.

We can help businesses achieve net-zero in a day or demonstrate clear progress over time towards their own reduction targets.

We believe in making evidence-based decisions. Having access to data is critical to this outcome. Our application measures the impact of your business on the environment in terms of tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted, based on the specific activities of your business.

Why Measure Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

The first step to addressing the climate change is to measure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and yet fewer than one in ten companies do this.

Quantifying your business’s carbon footprint means you can actively reduce or neutralise your contribution to climate change and thereby:

–  Reduce your energy costs

–  Outperform your competitors on emissions performance 

–  Attract more customers and capital

–  Improve employees’ perceptions of your company

–  Improve your “social license to operate” with key stakeholders such as communities,

    customers and governments.

Customers want to see real emissions reductions and offsetting; that’s why everything we do promotes measurable and accountable action.

Our software helps you to meet the demands of investors, supply chain pressures, and increasingly concerned customers aiming to reduce carbon emissions, by providing reliable reporting on the emissions of your business, enabling you to track these emissions over time, and providing you reduction and offsetting opportunities to become carbon neutral.

Challenges For Accountants/Bookkeepers

Many organisations want to improve their sustainability practices but don’t know what the first step is to assess their climate impact.

Accountants and bookkeepers face the following challenges:

Time to learn new things
Staying up to date with evolving technology can be a time-burden.

Constantly changing environment

As customer awareness on climate issues increases leading to demand for climate action, carbon accounting is becoming standard practice in business but most accountants don’t have required skills.

Hiring and retaining top talent
Finding good long-term staff who can perform efficiently and effectively is difficult.

Competition from other accounting firms
Increasing competition makes it more difficult to retain customers and win new business.

Lack of technical skills
As automation increases, upskilling and retraining staff to leverage cloud-based accounting and other technical skills are in demand.
