What is the carbon insights report?

Many businesses find it hard to work out their carbon footprint. But we can get you started. We've created a way to estimate your carbon emissions based on your Lloyds Bank business current account and credit/charge card transactions.​

This report provides insights into your estimated emissions and ideas for the next stage of your journey. You can also see how your estimated emissions compare to similar businesses.​

How does it work?

Spend: When you use your Lloyds Bank business current account and credit/charge card to make purchases, we get information such as where you spent the money and how much you paid.

Classify: Using the transaction information, we identify and classify the type of business that you’ve bought from – for  example: petrol stations or energy companies.

Analyse: Using data and expertise from our partners at the University of Leeds, we apply carbon factors to these categories to get a carbon estimate for each transaction.

Report: We can then break down the estimated emissions based on your spending to show your highest emissions areas and ideas for the next stage of your journey.

No input required

Gain insights into your estimated carbon footprint without needing to spend time inputting data.
