Why We’re Now Reporting Carbon Dioxide Equivalency (CO2e) for Carbon Footprint
Since REfficient began our sustainability reporting, both internally and to customers, we have calculated the estimated carbon footprint, or specifically carbon dioxide (CO2), of our shipments. We are now shifting our reporting to measure Carbon Dioxide Equivalency (CO2e). Why the change? And why now?
While carbon dioxide may be the most well known of the greenhouse gases to cause global warming, other gases such as methane nitrous oxide and hydrofluorocarbon gases are also significant contributors. However, one unit of a particular greenhouse gas may not be the same as another.
CO2e takes all of these potential gases into account and measures the amount of carbon dioxide that would have the same global warming potential. This is measured over a specific timeframe, usually over a …Continue reading
