Frequently asked questions

notch is a group of people passionate about helping organisations navigate the path to Net Zero, and in doing so, make their businesses better. A notch is a v-shaped indentation, that can be used to compare values. We’ve used it to name the platform that enables our users to compare their emissions over time.

For some businesses, it’s a statutory requirement. For all businesses, it sends a clear message to your customers, suppliers and employees that you take your relationship with the environment seriously, and you’re working to remove inefficiencies in the way you operate.

This depends on your business. Under SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting), you must publish Scope 1, Scope 2 and some Scope 3 categories. If you provide goods or services to Public Sector customers, you may also need to provide a PPN06/21 report. The good news is that notch has native functionality to create and publish these reports, all driven by the data you provide.

We’ve worked hard to refine the platform based on feedback from hundreds of users, so that it offers the right balance of functionality and user experience. It has been designed to support small, medium and large businesses from lots of different industries and has flexibility designed in. There is an exciting roadmap of functionality on the horizon, that will ensure you have the data you need to remain compliant with an increasing level of scrutiny, and emissions reporting throughout your value chain.

Other carbon calculators tell me it’s easy.. why does notch ask for more data?

As a core principle, we believe ‘activity based’ emissions calculations trump ‘spend based’. Quick question: Do you offer the same prices to all your customers, regardless of volume? Do all your competitors? No… thought not. This simple acid test demonstrates that average prices are just that… average. 

Our conversion factors for activities are based on the UK DEFRA and DFNZ published conversion factors, and applied on a monthly basis. So this means you can be sure we’re applying the right conversions factors for the time period in which the activity took place. We believe the collection and population of data is relatively easy, and our team helps your understand how to get the data, and embed processes in your day-to-day operations that mean minimal impact on your business.

Put simply, accuracy increases, ambiguity decreases. Let’s use supply chain transport emissions as an example. Based purely on spend averages, you’re assuming that you pay the same rates per mile or per package as a company that transports medical equipment, or car parts, or toilet rolls. By calculating emissions based on weight and distance, we can reach a meaningfully more accurate set of emissions. 

notch offers services to help you get up and running for your first year or reporting period. This means we train you on the platform, configure user permissions and sites, and help you collect, cleanse and upload your data. We can also help you produce reports, set up dashboards, and generally position you to get the most value out of the platform. You could also choose to work with our extensive list of notch partners
