#LearnSustainability: Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissionsDo you know what scope 1, 2 & and emissions are? We explain the concept and its meaning in this infographic
In order to calculate the carbon footprint, three types of emissions are differentiated:
Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions produced by the burning of fuels of the emitter.
Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions generated by the electricity consumed and purchased by the emitter.
Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions produced by the emitter activity but owned and controlled by a different emitter from the one who reports on the emissions.
