GLRPPR Sector Resource: How to Calculate your Carbon Footprint: Developing a Company-Wide GHG Inventory for a Small Business

Title:
How to Calculate your Carbon Footprint: Developing a Company-Wide GHG Inventory for a Small Business

Abstract:
For most small businesses the majority of their GHG emissions will come from their purchased electricity and vehicles. For others, especially small manufacturers, additional emissions will result from use of refrigerants, waste gases, or onsite combustion. The three tools on this page are designed to help small businesses develop a corporate wide inventory and establish a plan to ensure GHG data consistency as they track progress towards reaching an emissions reduction goal.
