Greenhouse Gas Protocol: Four Scopes

This video accompanies the post Greenhouse Gas Protocol: Four Scopes.

It provides an overview of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, and the three scopes that it describes. (The fourth scope is not used much.)

The four scopes are:

  • Scope 1: Direct Emissions

  • Scope 2: Indirect Emissions

  • Scope 3: Corporate Value Chain Standard

  • Scope 4: Avoided Emissions

The post Scope 3 Emissions: Systems Complexity describes some of the difficulties to do with organizing and implementing the Scope 3 requirements.
