Energy bills / usage information
The calculator asks how much electricity and gas your businesses uses every year on average, either in kWh or €. This information will be available on your bills. You can also provide information on other fuels such as heating oil, coal, fuel oil or LPG, if you use them, by inputting the volume used, or the cost, from your bills. Your supplier will be able to help you identify these figures.
Business travel information
The calculator asks for vehicle fuels (petrol or diesel) volumes or cost as well as flights taken for business purposes in a year. If it is not readily available in your accounts then you may need to estimate.
The calculator asks for the annual weight of your waste in non-recycled refuse (black bin), recycled refuse (green bin) and organic waste (brown bin). These are annual figures so as to remove seasonal variations. These weights are available from your waste provider, either as part of your billing information or separately.
Water bills / usage
The calculator asks for your annual water usage volume. This is measured in metres-cubed (m3) and will be available to you on your non-domestic water bill issued by Irish Water, your Local Authority or a private water scheme.
