Greenhouse Gas Emissions Tracking

FROM SUPPLY CHAIN TO PRODUCT DELIVERY

Scope 1

Scope 1 emissions are direct greenhouse gas emissions from sources owned or controlled by CementPro. This includes emissions from fuel combustion, such as those from vehicles, boilers, furnaces, and fugitive sources, such as leaks of refrigerants.

Some examples of scope 1 emissions are:

  • Emissions from fuel combustion in company-owned vehicles
  • Emissions from fuel combustion in company-owned boilers and furnaces
  • Emissions from fugitive sources, such as leaks of refrigerants

Scope 1 emissions are the most direct emissions from an organization and are often the easiest to measure and reduce. By reducing scope 1 emissions, CementPro is working to reduce our greenhouse gas footprint significantly.

Scope 2

Scope 2 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas emissions from the generation of purchased or acquired electricity, steam, heat or cooling. CementPro does not directly control these emissions, but our consumption of these energy sources indirectly causes them.

Some examples of scope 2 emissions are:

  • Emissions from the generation of electricity that is purchased from a utility company
  • Emissions from the generation of steam that is purchased from a cogeneration plant
  • Emissions from the generation of heat that is purchased from a district heating system

Scope 2 emissions are often the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions for organizations, after scope 1 emissions. By reducing scope 2 emissions, CementPro is working to reduce our greenhouse gas footprint significantly.

Scope 3

Scope 3 emissions are all indirect greenhouse gas emissions that occur in an organization’s value chain, including both upstream and downstream emissions. CementPro does not directly control these emissions, but its activities indirectly cause them.

Some examples of scope 3 emissions are:

  • Emissions from the extraction and production of purchased materials
  • Emissions from the transportation of purchased goods
  • Emissions from the use of sold products and services
  • Emissions from waste disposal

Scope 3 emissions are often the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions for organizations, and they can be the most difficult to measure and reduce. However, by reducing scope 3 emissions, CementPro is working to reduce our greenhouse gas footprint significantly.
