Many know the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) protocol in terms of the scope 1,2 and 3 classifications, but far fewer know the official breakdown of emissions sub-categories beyond that. 

In this whitepaper we list out all 20 sub-categories of the GHG reporting protocol and offer a description and also a preview as to how Spherics methodology addresses each.

We look at:

  • Overview of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission protocol, the carbon footprinting methodology that sits behind almost every carbon emissions framework and legislation. 
  • An overview of the methodology that Spherics uses to calculate carbon emissions for customers
  • A breakdown between direct and indirect emissions. 
  • A full breakdown of each of the 20 sub categories that make up scopes 1,2 and 3
  • A summary of how Spherics use a combination of spend based and activity based calculations for different sub categories
