Carbon Foot Print and GHG Inventorization

A GHG inventory is a comprehensive record of the sources and amounts of emissions for all GHGs in a given area. There are a number of reasons why businesses create GHG inventories, including: managing GHG risks and finding opportunities to cut emissions; engaging in GHG initiatives, whether they are required or not.

Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) Three types of emission categories are distinguished.

Emissions under Scope 1 are those for which the Organization has ultimate responsibility.
Emissions under Scope 2 include those caused by the use of "purchased electricity, heat, and steam."
Emissions under Scope 3 include those caused by external sources such as suppliers, distributors, and "use of supplied items," or how buyers actually put a company's wares to use.

A person's "carbon footprint" is the total amount of greenhouse gases they are responsible for releasing into the air. Individuals, businesses, and countries all contribute to these emissions via the decisions and activities they make. Emissions of carbon dioxide are the standard for calculating an individual's "carbon footprint" (CO2). To determine a firm's carbon footprint, we add all the emissions produced across a good's entire life cycle (material production, manufacturing, use, and end-of-life). The Greenhouse Gas Protocol developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Resources Institute (WBCSD-WRI-ISO 14064-1, 2, 3: 2019) is the basis for our assistance with carbon footprint or GHG inventory analysis.
