DIRECT AND INDIRECT EMISSIONS

Direct and indirect emissions are divided into 3 scopes according to the GHG Protocol.

Scope 1 includes all emissions generated directly by the company and its activities

Scope 2 covers all emissions associated with the company’s consumption of electricity, heat or steam in its facilities or vehicle fleets

Scope 3 corresponds to all other indirect emissions taking place upstream or downstream in the company’s value chain.
