    6. 6. What is a carbon foot print? A carbon footprint is: Usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (tCO2e). Your organizational carbon footprint is the sum of all greenhouse gas emissions produced by your activities in a given time frame. Usually  a  carbon  footprint  is  calculated for the time period of a year. A carbon  footprint has  historically  been  defined  as  "the  total  set  of greenhouse  gas (GHG) emissions caused by an organization, event, product or person www.general-carbon.com
    7. 7. Global warming potential The Global Warming Potential (GWP) for a gas is a measure of the total energy that a gas absorbs over a particular period of time (usually 100 years), compared to carbon dioxide. Example: Methane's 100-year GWP is 21, which means that methane will cause 21 times as much warming as an equivalent mass of carbon dioxide over a 100-year time period. GHG & their GWPs www.general-carbon.com
    8. 8. Nations  agreed  to  think  about  ways  to  place  a  higher  value  on  nature,  including  alternatives to GDP as a measure of wealth that account more for environmental and  social factors, and efforts to assess and pay for "environmental services" provided by  nature, such as carbon sequestration and habitat protection.” - Guardian, 23rd June 2012 They have recognized that the phase-out of ozone depleting substances is resulting in  a  rapid  increase  in  the  use  and  release  of  high  global-warming  potential  HydroFluoroCarbons(HFCs) to the environment. We support a gradual phase-down in  the consumption and production of HydroFluoroCarbons(HFCs). -The Future We Want- Outcome of Rio + 20 As  per  the  outcome  of  the  conference,  the  Heads  of  State  and Government and high-level representatives, having met  at  Rio  de  Janeiro,  Brazil,  from  20  to  22  June  2012  have  renewed their commitment to sustainable development and  to  ensuring  the  promotion  of  an  economically,  socially  and  environmentally  sustainable  future  for  our  planet  and  for  present and future generations. June 2012. www.general-carbon.com
    9. 9. Why Carbon Foot Print? • Post Copenhagen , Cancun and Durban, BASIC and other countries have begun Carbon related regulations • Business voluntarily wants to demonstrate its climate stewardship and GHG accounting and disclosure is the first step www.general-carbon.com Examples • • • • China is starting carbon trading in five provinces South Korea is going ahead with ETS City of Sao Paulo has proposed ETS South Africa requires all its large business entities to report their GHG Accounts and explain their Efforts congruent to National Targets
    10. 10. Worldwide GHG emissions www.general-carbon.com 10
    11. 11. Recognized standards and approaches to calculate a carbon footprint There are two most popular and internationally accepted standards: ▪ GHG Protocol - Developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) , it lays down voluntary standards for compiling the GHG emissions inventory and reporting. ▪ ISO 14064-1 based GHG accounting - A relatively newer standard, the ISO allows for certification of the compiled inventory. Specification with guidance at the organisation level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals - based on the GHG protocol. www.general-carbon.com
    12. 12. GHG accounting process Review the corporate operations as per the ISO 14064 standard - the standard specifies : (a)Principles (b)Requirements for quantification and reporting of GHG emissions and removals including requirements for: www.general-carbon.com
    13. 13. ISO14064 based GHG Accounting (Carbon Foot printing) and Assessment www.general-carbon.com
    14. 14. Motivation of ISO 14064-2006 Why apply for it?  Importance of social and environmental responsibility  The society wants to become more conscious about business impact on social and environmental topics  Efficiency  The results provide reliable feedback pertaining to GHG information and actions proceeded by an organization  Straightforward implementation methods  Necessity  Investors of big companies are requesting the disclosure of an organization's GHG data in a certifiable manner.  Regulatory Mechanisms  GOI is likely to come out with policy decision on GHG emission disclosure for corporate, which will mandate GHG inventorisation  DGCA circular  ISO 14064 will be an efficient tool. www.general-carbon.com
    15. 15. Steps involved in carbon footprint *Measure emissions and establish a baseline viz. Scope 1: Direct Emissions, Ex. On-site fuel combustion. Scope 2: Indirect Emissions, Ex. purchased electricity for own use Scope 3: (Optional) Indirect Emissions, Ex. Employee business travel www.general-carbon.com

    17. 17. Carbon footprint – Success stories Oakhurst Dairy  Oakhurst is the only truly local major dairy in Northern New England and Eastern Massachusetts.  Oakhurst calculated carbon footprint from cradle to Walmart store and found as >80% from farm  It aimed to reduce its plant energy and GHG emissions by 20% by taking various measures and saved $58,740 in 2010 www.general-carbon.com Walkers  Walkers is the UK’s largest snack foods manufacturer with 15 locations across the UK  It identified opportunities to save more than 2,000 tCO2e per annum and reduce their energy bills by approximately £225,000  Through its continuous commitment to emission reduction, it found new ways to boost profitability through energy savings.
