This indicates the total reported Scope 1 (all direct emissions) and Scope 2 (indirect electricity emissions) of the company in metric tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
- Scope 1 emissions represent 'all direct emissions' arising from a company's direct operational activities.
- Scope 2 emissions represent 'indirect emissions' generated from the purchase of electricity.
Total GHG emissions are normally reported in tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e). CO2 equivalent is used to express the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of different Greenhouse Gases in one comparable metric. Given that CO2 is the most common man-made Greenhouse Gas, when combining different Greenhouse Gases, they are converted to Carbon Dioxide equivalent.
