It is estimated that the global average of air temperatures will increase in many Celsius degrees as a result of higher Carbon Dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere and due to more emissions of other Greenhouse Gases. The effects of Global Warming are felt day after day, with climate disasters getting more common. This is the reason why it is imperative to promote a low carbon economy.
Many years ago the GHG Protocol has established itself as the most renowned reference for corporate emissions inventory, with different scopes for accounting Greenhouse Gases, providing requirements and guidance to companies and other organizations. Scope 1 refers to emission sources under direct responsibility of the company. Scope 2 deals with the Global Warming Potential of energy amount purchased from the grid or somewhere else. And Scope 3 encompasses indirect responsibilities, just like an LCA.
