Draw up an action plan
Even if carrying out a GHG inventory is a vital stage in knowing what emissions are associated with your activity, it is by no means an end in itself!
Accounting for your emissions makes it possible to identify the sources for which the activity may have room to maneuver in order to reduce its emissions.
The implementation of reduction action plans may take several forms:
- Rethinking your production modes;
- Changing your behavior;
- Reviewing elements strategic to the activity (marketing, customer priorities, etc.);
Reminder: There are three principal emission scopes (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) which are in turn divided up into 24 categories.
The following tables enable you to access action paths, category by category.
Direct GHG emissions: direct emissions emanating from stationary or mobile installations situated within the organizational boundary, i.e.: emissions from sources owned or controlled by the organization, such as the combustion of stationary and mobile sources, industrial processes excluding combustion, emissions from ruminants, biogas from landfill centers, refrigerant leakages, nitrogenous fertilizers, biomass, etc.
Indirect energy emissions: indirect emissions associated with the production of electricity, heat or steam purchased for the activities of the organization.
|Indirect emissions linked to electricity consumption||Distribution transformers and energy savings|
|Creating and optimizing a heating network|
|Injecting biogas into the network|
|7||Indirect emissions linked to the consumption of steam, heat or refrigeration||Steam heating|
|Ventilation and air conditioning|
Other indirect emissions: the other emissions indirectly produced by the activities of the organization which are not accounted for under Scope 2 but which are linked to the overall value chain, such as: the purchasing of raw materials, services or other products; employee travel; upstream and downstream transportation of goods; the management of waste generated by the activities of the organization; the use and end-of-life of sold products and services; the amortization of production goods and equipment, etc.
