FAQs

Carbon accounting, also known as greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting, is a method used by companies to calculate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions they produces.

Carbon accounting software is an essential tool for businesses that want to reduce their environmental impact and contribute to the fight against climate change. A carbon accounting platform calculates how much carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases a company emits, split into physical and financial carbon accounting.

By tracking and measuring their carbon emissions, businesses can identify areas where they can reduce their environmental impact, make informed decisions about sustainable practices, and set goals for reducing their emissions in the future.

Sage Earth connects with your accounting software, drawing on data you've already entered to build an initial automated footprint.

We convert amounts spent into an estimated carbon dioxide equivalent. This is known as the ‘spend-based’ method of estimating emissions, as defined by the GHG Protocol.

For greater accuracy, our carbon accounting system also uses an activity-based method, so we will ask you for added information such as employee commuting.

Sage Earth is currently only available to UK customers. This is because our current calculation methodology uses predominantly UK data sources and is based on UK industry averages. There are plans on our roadmap to bring Sage carbon accounting software UK to other regions - so watch this space!

Sage carbon accounting software currently integrates with Sage Business Cloud Accounting (also sometimes referred to as Sage One or Sage Accounting), with Sage 50 and Sage 50 Cloud integration coming very soon. We advise checking which Sage accounting product you are using before signing up to Sage Earth.

Spherics is the name of the Bristol based start-up that Sage acquired in October 2022, and which was later re-branded Sage Earth. Sage Earth is a carbon accounting platform that makes it easy for SMBs to measure their emissions, including those of their suppliers, by automating the calculation process.

The software uses analysis of existing data held in the client organisation’s accounting software. This carbon accounting solution then guides the customer to refine this estimate by submitting further data for a more accurate calculation - supporting SMBs on their journey to net zero.

By combining Sage Earth’s innovative software with the Sage digital network, businesses are connecting with their customer and supplier emissions data, enabling easy collaboration on climate action and helping to reduce carbon footprints.
