Carbon Basics Greenhouse Gas
A Gas that Warms Up Atmosphere CO 2 main gas Also CH4, N2O, refrigerations, etc Measure - tCO2e 1 Olympic Pool about 3 tCO2e
at air pressure 1 large CO2 bottle
31 kG CO2 Air, 3% CO2, thus
300 pools for 1 tCO2e Car, 4.3 tCO2e/yr GWP Carbon 1
GWP Nitrous Oxide 310 Types of Emissions Scope 1 Scope 3 Scope 2 Your emissions through consumption of energy
on your site but emitted elsewhere Electricity Purchased steam, compressed air Burning of fuel, diesel, petrol Methane from ponds or animals
or application of super Other people's scope 1 and scope 2
emissions from the activity of your business. Use of contractors, fuels,
electricity, eg transport Carbon emissions from production of printing and packaging Your flights Embedded emissions, such as paper use,
manufacture of cars. Carbon Drivers
and Standards Mandatory Carbon
Market (NGER) IPCC Scope 1 and 2 only If everyone minimises their scope 1 and 2,
then carbon emissions will decrease Your scope 3 is someone else's scope 1 or 2 Mechanism for Carbon Price Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Low Carbon Australia (ex Carbon Trust) Two approaches - detailed
calculation or from financials Sample Flow Chart - PAS2050 Scope 1, 2 and 3 included EN16 - Scope 1 and 2 emissions. EN18 - Initiatives to reduce emissions
(not offsetting) Samples of Carbon Tax Costs Nitrous Oxides Methane Hydroflurocarbons Carbon Background GWP Global Warming Potential Carbon Dioxide Equivalents (CO2e) IPCC - International Panel of Climate Change - UN
Over 20,000 scientists EN17 - Scope 3 emissions.
Identify significant Scope 3 emissions that
you can influence. Applies to top 1,000 companies ACCC interested in investigation claims Carbon Neutrality House about 12 tCO2e/yr Australia's Total Carbon Emissions 2009
564 Million tCO2e per year Your emissions from your site from consumption of energy or by your industry processes Lime Production, Coke
escaped gases Identify significant Scope 3 emissions that
you can influence. NCOS - National Carbon Offset Standard
Australian Standard ISO14040, 14044
and 14064 Scope 1, 2 and 3 included
