Scope 1, Scope 2 & Scope 3
The GHG Protocol defines the principles of completeness, consistency, transparency, accuracy, and relevance to capture greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions are divided into so called scopes. Scope 1 covers all emissions directly caused by incineration. Scope 2 covers the emissions generated by purchased energy (electricity, district heating). Scope 3 covers emissions caused by purchased inputs and third-party services.
