Following services are provided by WWF-Pakistan to companies enrolled for the Green office program certification:
1. Calculation of Carbon Foot print
The WWF-Pakistan team shall calculate the carbon foot print of the Organization from the KPI (electrical, paper, waste, travel) data provided by the Organization.

The results are shared with the organization as well as compared with the previous year’s data for performance evaluation.
