About the Event
As the book publishing industry works to embrace sustainability and manage down its carbon footprint, most companies are learning first-hand about how their emissions contribute to their unique carbon footprint. To reduce an organization’s carbon footprint and impact climate change, each firm must understand, then measure its greenhouse gas emissions. But what emissions do various companies control, and how do we measure emissions when responsibility may reside somewhere else in the supply chain?
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) divides emissions into three scopes: Scope 1 emissions (direct emissions from sources owned or controlled by a company); Scope 2 emissions (indirect emissions from purchased electricity, steam, heat, and cooling); and Scope 3 emissions (all other emissions associated with a company’s activities). In this webinar, a panel of sustainability veterans will discuss the three scopes, explain where to look and how to estimate emissions and share stories of their sustainability journeys.
This webinar is brought to you by the Green Book Alliance, a cooperative effort of Book Industry Communication, BookNet Canada, and the Book Industry Study Group.
