Our Carbon Footprint 2016
Carbon Solutions Ltd. is not only committed to give guidance to others on how to precisely track and efficiently reduce their carbon footprint, but also – in a similarly accurate way - to evaluate its own performance. For this reason, we prepare every year our detailed annual carbon footprint report and we make it available on our website for our customers and partners as well.
In fiscal year 2016, Carbon Solutions Global Ltd. had a total carbon footprint of 1,39 tCO2e.
It is important to highlight that the carbon footprint results of the past years are not suitable for comparison due to significant structural reorganizations which had serious effect on company profile and services as well.
Office heating (natural gas consumption) contributed 0,668 tonnes of CO2e which amount is almost the half of the total carbon footprint. Emissions from electricity consumption took another significant share with 0,39 tCO2e which means 28,12%. Employee commuting was responsible for the third largest amount of emissions with 14,48% (0,201 tCO2e) of the total. Waste generation including mixed municipal and separately collected waste had a carbon footprint of 0,071 tCO2e which means 5,1% share and emissions from the usage of company computers took 3,96%. The carbon footprint of water consumption was negligibly small with 0,2% share.
Carbon Solutions Global Ltd. owned no company vehicles and had no other direct emission sources in the reporting year, therefore the company had no GHG emissions to be reported in Scope 1. The share of Scope 2 emissions was approximately 28% and the rest of the carbon footprint was originated from Scope 3 emissions. The indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions were derived from office heating, employee commuting, waste generation, personal computers and water consumption.
