We use the latest IEA emission factor data and follow industry best practice standards, such as the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, in order to understand and quantify a company’s carbon footprint and potential commercial risks.
These ‘indirect’ emissions include those caused by the generation of energy purchased by a company, e.g. electricity for air conditioning.
All other emissions that occur due to a company’s activity, but from sources that they do not own or control are included here, e.g. business travel, purchased goods and services, use of sold products, investments.
