accurate picture of the current carbon situation required

As someone who has been asked to complete a carbon audit in order that businesses may make improvements to their current emissions,I am very confused at the term carbon audit and how basing future carbon output reduction  and mitigation measures upon some of these audits seems questionable .The audit was more of an output calculation.with no account taken for any mitigation measures  already in place and as such , is not a accurate reflection of my current carbon emissions status .

In order to make our climate change policy worthwhile and effective surely we need to have an accurate measure of the current status  before we commit masses of time effort and money to either things that aren`t  properly targetted to achieve best results or even possibly not needed in the first place......The  vast carbon reserves of the peatlands, the large amount of woodlands, the photosynthesising green farmland and hills surely provide sequestration worthy of consideration.A great start on the way to seeing scotland as a world leader in any future climate change policies.

Why the contribution is important
