Greenhouse Gas Audit
Every Greenhouse Gas Audit undertaken by Sceptre is conducted in accordance with the internationally recognised ISO 14064_1 and World Business Council for Sustainable Development and World Resources Institute’s (WBSCD/WRI) Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
The assessment includes the six Kyoto greenhouse gases, establishing clear boundaries between Scopes 1, 2 and 3. All emissions factors which are used are the most up-to-date available from referenced sources.
Utility consumption, gas, electric and water where applicable
Fuel consumption by company owned and long-term leased vehicles
Staff business travel in both vehicles owned by staff but on company business and travel in taxis, on airplanes etc
Waste – both recycled and waste to landfill
Carbon offsetting is the practice of counteracting emissions through a carbon-saving project in order to balance out emissions from a given source. For example, it is possible to calculate the emissions associated with the travel in an organisation and ‘offset’ them by investing in a project that saves an equivalent amount of carbon such that the impact of that activity is ‘net zero’.
