Climate FAQ's

Understanding climate and carbon accounting terminology is not easy. Here's our quick breakdown of some of the key terms you should know. If you want to learn more find our climate hub here.

What are Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions?

Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions are a crucial bit of terminology within carbon accounting. The 'scopes' were created by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol as a way of cataloguing the 15 emission categories. Scope 1 refers to a company's direct emissions. Scope 2 is their indirect emissions from the generation of electricity and Scope 3 emissions are all other indirect emissions. You can read our break down of each Scope in full here.

How do you calculate emissions?

Calculating emissions is a fairly simple process in principle. You times a business activity, such as purchasing a laptop or 100kg of barley and you times it by an emission factor.

Understanding the emission factor is the complex part. For example, Apple publish their lifecycle assessment (LCA) data online so we know the emissions each of their products, so that makes calculating the emissions from your laptop easier.

Where product emissions from a supplier are not available it may be possible to use data from public bodies such as DEFRA or the EPA.

As a last resort, it's possible to times the amount spent on a product by the emission factor for that category. For example, if you spend £1,000 on Air Travel the emissions would be 1,561.8 kgCO2e. This is just an average and does not give an accurate understanding of your emissions.

Why is reducing rather than offsetting our emissions so important?

To keep warming under 1.5 degrees we need to reach net zero by 2050 and cut our emissions in half by 2030. Reducing our emissions is critical to reducing carbon emissions.

While offsetting has its place, it's important that it's the correct offset. That's why we've partnered with Klimate to offer carbon removal through some of the most innovative companies to all of our customers.
