SOSJ Consulting helps you to understand the greenhouse gas emissions that occur as a result of your company’s activities and operations. The starting point is identifying and calculating your Corporate Carbon Footprint. Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 greenhouse emissions can be measured and calculated, these are defined as follows:
Scope 1: Direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur as a direct result of your company’s activities and are under your direct operational control.
Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions that occur from the purchase of electricity, heat or cooling.
Scope 3: Indirect GHG emissions that arise as a result of your company’s activities but are not under your operational control. Scope 3 activities cover a wide range along a company’s entire value chain. The Scope 3 emissions for one company are the Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions for another company
From your Carbon Footprint, a Carbon Management Plan, Science Based Targets and Net Zero Emissions Roadmap can be developed to help navigate towards reducing and eliminating greenhouse gas emissions.
Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) Analysis can form part of this work, comparing carbon abatement opportunities at different cost scenarios (examples of carbon abatement opportunities are: energy efficiency, clean energy, carbon offsets). This type of analyses allows the user to easily understand what volumes of abatement can be achieved and the costs at a particular point in time. The MACC curve provides an essential tool for strategic decision making in carbon reduction and zero emissions planning.
