For the qualitative part, click on 'Evaluation' under Resource Efficiency on the ZDHC Supplier Platform. Please read the self-evaluation questions and their explanations carefully.
You may reply with one of the following options:
- '(Fully) completed' if you know the item in the question is implemented at your facility.
- 'Not completed yet' if you have not implemented this item (yet) or are unsure whether you have implemented what the question requires. Selecting this option will unlock recommendations that guide how to implement the required measures.
- 'Not Applicable' if the question does not apply to your facility. This option is not available for mandatory questions.
It is strongly recommended to complete the evaluation for an entire chapter before starting to work on the respective recommendations. The recommendations overview section will show all the recommendations unlocked from the evaluation.
Note: You can change your answers to the questions at any time before submitting your evaluation. Once your evaluation has been submitted, you can no longer make adjustments.
For the quantitative part, click on 'consumption' under Resource Efficiency of the ZDHC Supplier Platform. Here you can select the year for which you would like to add the data. It is also possible to fill in the data retrospectively. Per category, you first fill in the source and the unit of measure (UoM), followed by the monthly consumption data. If different sources are applicable, you can add a new row by clicking 'add row’ When all data is entered, click on 'save all'.
When all consumption data is filled in, the 'GHG Reporting Section' provides an overview of all your consumption data every year and the CO2 emissions per category. This data can be shared with relevant stakeholders.
If you do not know the answer to a question, you can click on 'not completed yet' and continue with the other questions. If one of the optional questions does not apply to your facility, you can click the 'not applicable'. These emissions encompass purchased standard electricity, renewable energy, steam, and heat.
