GHG Emissions

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have increased rapidly since the mid-20th century, largely due to industrialisation and economic and population growth. Correspondingly, average global temperatures have also increased, with complex and far-reaching implications for the earth’s climate. Understanding where these emissions come from is an important first step in tackling climate change and decarbonising our economy. Reaching net zero will present a significant challenge for all sectors of the global economy. In the link below, we explore how large emitter sectors contribute to global GHG emissions and introduce the key aspects that organisations need to consider when measuring their carbon footprint.
