Reporting on GHG emissions allows WellConnection to work actively to reduce our carbon footprint. 2021 has not just been a full year’s benchmark of our emissions but also an excellent opportunity to inform and teach our organization about the value and importance of reducing our emissions.
We follow the standards of the GHG Protocol, and our reporting on GHG emissions is based on the following:
Scope 1: Direct emissions from company-owned and controlled resources.
Scope 2: Indirect emissions from purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling used by the organization.
Scope 3: All other indirect emissions from activities of the organization, such as business travel, procurement, waste and water.
Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions
