Grexel discloses and compensates its Carbon Footprint

Being an environmentally aware company, Grexel® has decided to disclose and compensate its own carbon footprint. 

In order to calculate our emissions, we use the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), the most widely recognized tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage their greenhouse gas emissions. 

GHG Protocol provides sufficient standards and guidance needed to identify and quantify emissions induced by us and our value chain. By producing this kind of an emissions inventory it will become possible to identify the main sources of our CO₂-emissions and find solutions to reduce them. 

In 2016, business done by Grexel induced 24,71 tonnes of CO₂. This includes direct and indirect emissions such as commuting, generation of purchased electricity, heating & cooling, production of furniture and other equipment, etc. See our GHG Emission Inventory for 2016 for the details and calculations.

This represents a minor increase (+3,82%) in our emissions when compared to 2015. This was largely due to the update of the emissions factors for air travel in Scope 3 category 6 (business travel). The emissions in all other categories in Scope 3 and Scope 2 dropped.

Previous inventories can be found below:

To compensate the 2016 emissions, we had 25 CER units cancelled on our behalf. The units originated from Shaanxi Shenmu Hengdong waste gas based electricity generation project in China. The cancellation statement is available in the GECCO registry,here
