During the last couple of years most of the biggest companies and EU have presented ambitious targets for reduction of carbon emissions.
A good understanding of own emissions and a solid methodology for carbon accounting is essential for identifying the biggest contributors of carbon emission and reducing emissions.
Lack of earlier experience and established routines can erroneously lead companies to focus on less important emission contributors and to an inefficient use of resources in the strategy definition process for carbon reduction.
Trine Kopperud, VP Energy & Environment i Yara, will go through some concept and definitions for carbon accounting such as “Scope 1, 2 and 3” emissions. She will also describe how Yara, the nitrate based fertilizer company works with emissions reporting and de-carbonization.
