Measuring Carbon Footprints – Scope 2 emissions explained
According to the 2015 Paris Agreement we have to halve our carbon emissions by 2030. So- where do you start? When measuring your carbon footprint, you categorize your emissions into three scopes: scope 1, 2, and 3. We previously discussed scope 1 emissions in our first blog about measuring your carbon footprint. Today it’s time for scope 2 emissions. What are they and how can I report them?
Measuring Carbon Footprints – Scope 1 Emissions explained.
According to the 2015 Paris Agreement we have to halve our carbon emissions by 2030. But, where do you start? You start with categorizing your emissions into scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions. In this first (out of three) article on these scopes, we will dive into scope 1 emissions specifically.
Science-Based Targets – What they are, Why they work & How to get going
