Through constant improvement of our products, processes, and services, we do our part to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and steward the environment for future generations. As part of our commitment to future sustainability, we track and report our Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions.
Scope 1 emissions are direct GHG emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by an organization (e.g., emissions associated with fuel combustion in boilers, furnaces, vehicles).
Scope 2 emissions are indirect GHG emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, steam, heat, or cooling. Although Scope 2 emissions physically occur at the facility where they are generated, they are accounted for in an organization’s GHG inventory because they are a result of the organization’s energy use.
We are on track to report higher Scope 1 emissions (from combustion), but lower Scope 2 emissions (from electricity use) at the end of 2022. Our estimates for Scopes 1 and 2 take into account the following factors and strategies:
