Carbon Footprint Organization

Calculations Continue to Reduce Energy Comsumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions. 

Carbon Footprint Organization (CFO) registers the amount of greenhouse gas emissions saved by an organization. There are seven types of greenhouse gases: Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), Hydrofluorocarbon (HFCs), Fluorocarbon (PFCs), Sulfur fluorides (SF6) and Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). All are calculated from corporate activity such as the burning of fuel, electricity usage, waste management, transportation etc. and measured in Carbon Dioxide tonnes. You can identify sources of greenhouse gas emissions from the following …

Scope 1: Direct emission sources from operations such as direct combustion engines; the use of corporate vehicles (Corporate owned); chemicals used in water treatment, leaks / spills and other processes or related activities.

Scope 2: Calculate Carbon Footprint indirectly from the use of energy (Energy Indirect Emissions) including the purchase of power used in the organization i.e. electricity, heat or steam etc.

Scope 3: Calculate Carbon Footprint indirectly including employee travel by non-corporate vehicles, company trips to the conference site and extra use of materials and equipment, etc.

Calculations to be familiar with…

To calculate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions generated by your organization define any activity that is a source of greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3). The data should be collected for a period of one year. In this process, organizations will have a list of corporate greenhouse gas emission activity data collected to calculate greenhouse gas emissions. The total will make organizations aware of their greenhouse gas emissions. If an organization would like to endorse the emission of greenhouse gases, accreditation can be done through Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (Public Organization) (TGO.), a government agency that certifies data on this matter.

Further Reduce Energy Consumption And Greenhouse Gas Emissions…

In general, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions from the industrial sector is highly significant and comes from scope 2 emissions - the amount of electricity purchased to be used within the organization. This is used in the manufacturing process or for other activities in the organization. However there are certain industries that are sources of greenhouse gas emissions that are also highly significant and come from Scope 1 i.e. Industries such as cement manufacturing. Cement production produces calcinations which generate greenhouse gases in high amounts. Large petrochemical industries use huge quantities of fuel and the reaction of the raw material used in the production certainly contributes to greenhouse gas generation at high levels.

If you decide to identify the source and manage industrial greenhouse gas emissions from within your organization, optimizing the production process will reduce energy consumption. Or you may decide to switch to renewable energy and reduce the overall amount of waste generated. The results will enable organizations to reduce the usage of energy which leads to lowering the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by your organization.
