Homegrown management consultancy Rennie has inked a partnership with Compare Your Footprint, a software provider that provides efficient insight into carbon emissions and decarbonisation pathways.

Rennie’s ESG Leader, Arvind Sharma, said that the partnership with the UK-based technology provider followed a comprehensive global assessment of ESG digital tools. “Compare Your Footprint is a cutting-edge and audit ready diagnostic tool that can quickly pinpoint actionable and practical solutions.”

As part of the agreement, Rennie’s ESG practice will integrate the tool into its offering. “With this partnership we are well positioned to support businesses to develop a robust decarbonisation roadmap supported by rigorous carbon reporting, and benchmarking their carbon performance against peers,” Sharma said.

Established in 2017 by co-founders Will Richardson and Emma Littlewood, Compare Your Footprint helps organisations of all sizes and industries to get started on their environmental journey.

The platform’s data aggregation capability and database of 10,000+ carbon factors enables organisations to significantly reduce the cost of carbon emissions assessment and reporting across operations including supply chain, projects, products, and events, covering Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

Compare Your Footprint ensures compliance with key regulatory requirements including the GHG Protocol, Science-Based Targets, and the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act.

Rennie Managing Director Simone Rennie said that the partnership builds on the firm’s strategy to “expand our service offerings into mass market measurement, reporting, and decarbonisation strategy.” The move comes hot on the heels of the mini-acquisition of Conversio, a boutique specialised in greenhouse gas (GHG) measurement and reporting.

“Our partnership with Compare Your Footprint marks an exciting milestone in our mission to help organisations across many different industries navigate and optimise their transition to a net zero, sustainable future,” Rennie stated.

Commenting on the partnership with the Australian consulting firm, London-based Will Richardson said: “We love working with like-minded, purpose-driven organisations and we are excited to work with Rennie Advisory in Australia – a firm committed to the transition to net zero and making a real impact with its client work.”

“With the adoption of Compare Your Footprint, the Rennie team will be able to significantly reduce the cost of carbon emissions assessment for its clients.”
