Auditel’s High Quality Carbon Solutions
Auditel support clients in navigating their path to Carbon Net Zero through carbon footprints, management plans and verification, but a double-benefit is that it can be funded through the cost savings in procurement from within the business that Auditel also achieve.
By combining the expertise of Auditel’s own Carbon Strategy Group and partnering with British Standards Institute (BSI) and NQA they can assist clients in becoming verified carbon neutral through PAS 2060. “Specification for the demonstration of carbon neutrality” or ISO 14068. Auditel train all new franchise partners in all aspects of the Auditel business.
Auditel franchise partners can generate revenue through a mix of monthly retainer fees and fixed fee projects and then also develop a range of additional income streams that will be developed alongside. Carbon is also great for cash flow as you’ll start billing at the outset of the client engagement.
"I started approaching clients by leading with carbon solutions in October 2001. By February 2022 I had already secured seven new clients all paying me monthly retainers totalling nearly £100k per year, and I had more clients sign throughout the year. By the end of 2022, I had more clients than I could manage by myself, so I ‘joint venture’ the project work with my Auditel colleagues. Carbon acts as the ‘door opener’ from which procurement and cost management projects then come on top. The financial rewards are enormous, in 2023 I’ve billed over £250k alone, but I feel great about the impact of the work that I do, especially the positive environmental impact – I’m passionate and proud about helping businesses manage and reduce carbon emissions."
Sean Connaughton, Auditel Partner.
Powerful Procurement Solutions
Auditel Partners boost cash-flow within their client’s business by saving money through better procurement, process improvement or identifying how technology can play a greater part in their business.
Auditel deliver ‘best value’, saving client’s money, increasing profit, and making a tangible difference.

Procurement and carbon go ‘hand in hand’ and Auditel are very unique in offering both service offerings that are both in such high demand at the moment.
Auditel can achieve for their clients’ incredible results that any business just can’t achieve by themselves – through cost category expertise, supplier and pricing knowledge, and collated buying power.

An Auditel Business Can Be Ideal For People From Diverse Backgrounds
Auditel is a collaborative network of over 100 franchised partners who have come from varied backgrounds but usually at senior-management or director level. By playing to their strengths, Partners can work together to deliver procurement, supply chain management and carbon solutions to organisations of wide-ranging industry sectors and sizes.
Auditel can suit people from all industry sectors and areas of expertise. You do not need to be an accountant or a procurement specialist! Auditel offers a broad array of ‘pathways’ to suit your skills, experience and business objectives. This means that if you enjoy client management and business development you can focus your business on these areas and utilise the expertise of other Auditel Partners who can deliver the project management aspects.
Equally, if you have experience and knowledge in certain areas, for example, Logistics, Packaging or Waste Management, you can develop this expertise with Auditel and over time, undertake projects for other affiliates alongside your own client activities.
You can play to your strengths in Auditel, though every Partner is thoroughly trained and supported ongoing in all aspects of the business.
"I’ve got a stable, profitable business with a great team behind me, and financially I am in a better position than I would be if I was still in full time employment. I was fortunate and very grateful to be able to build our dream home for my family and I last year. I wouldn’t have been able to start my property journey without the income from Auditel and I wouldn’t have been able to build the house if I didn’t have the time – so the flexibility of the business has played a pivotal role."
David Kendall – Auditel Practice
