Corporate Carbon Footprint – Understanding Scope 1, 2 and 3 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

Energy Efficiency No Comments »

What’s included a company’s carbon footprint? How to measure corporate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions? Every business leader should know what to consider as part of their company footprint, this video explains what’s included.

Often we tend to think about facilities, energy use, and perhaps the fleet – but these account only for a part of a company’s total carbon footprint. The Sustainability Speaker Susanna Hasenoehrl helps you to better understand this, walking you through the concept of Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.

Scope 1 and 2 emissions arise from a company’s operational activities, such as a production facility, or heating or cooling an office. These can be controlled somewhat easily – for example, by switching to renewable energy, or to an electric fleet.

So what about Scope 3? Pukka, a Unilever brand, reports that 49% of their emissions come from boiling the kettle, to make a ‘cuppa’. This is an example of Scope 3 emissions, which are more indirect – yet related to the usage of a company’s products and services.

For most companies, Scope 3 makes up most of their carbon footprint. Scope 3 emissions can be quite difficult to measure, as it includes things like emissions from waste – when a product is disposed of – the supply chain, outsourced activities, and even business travel.

Nonetheless: when you come across a company’s carbon disclosure, do ask whether Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions are included.

By utilizing a mobile capture concept, University of Michigan researchers have designed a way to capture 70-80 percent of all CO2 emissions from truck exhaust pipes. The effort aims to help curb climate change.

Climate change is a pressing issue, and carbon dioxide emissions greatly contribute. This process being developed to collect heavy duty exhaust will help reduce emissions and is a renewable process. Once capacity in the tank is reached, steam or hot gas can be used to recycle the materials and repeat the cycle over and over.

This video features Christina Reynolds, PhD Candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Christian M. Lastoskie, Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Transforming rice farming through regenerative production to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Transforming rice farming through regenerative production to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

The global food system is responsible for between 20-30% of greenhouse gas emissions. How can we produce rice, a food staple eaten by over half the world’s population — in a way that uses fewer resources and regenerates nature? More and more farmers around the world are adopting an agroecological approach called the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), which reduces water use, methane production, and the use of chemicals, while providing better yields and reducing labour for rice farmers.
Thank you for watching this video. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK charity that develops and promotes the idea of a circular economy, which – driven by design, eliminates waste and pollution, circulates products and materials, and regenerates nature.

Harnessing water innovation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Water is vital to our existence. It is no doubt that we need water to live, and it is expected that demand for water will only increase as our population grows. But can we meet this demand while ensuring that we reach our carbon emission targets in the future? The water sector contributes to about 2% of greenhouse gas emissions, and while this is not significantly large, it is still a meaningful amount.

AECOM’s Scott Dunn, Chief Strategy Officer, Asia, and Beverley Stinson, Chief Executive, Global Business Line ‒ Water, join this discussion at the Singapore International Water Week 2022. They explore innovative and smart solutions on how we can potentially reduce carbon emissions in the water sector for a future with more water and less carbon.

Designing Policies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Energy Use

Sanford School of Policy professor Billy Pizer outlines the challenges of designing policies that rein in the environmental impacts of energy use.

While it’s true that Earth’s temperatures and carbon dioxide levels have always fluctuated, the reality is that humans’ greenhouse emissions since the industrial revolution have put us in uncharted territory.
