Other CO2 sources
You can add CO2-emissions from relevant raw materials or from outsourced services in the Envirometer by yourself. For this, you need to have and use a CO2 conversion factor. This will be done as followed:
- Go to ‘enter’ and choose the button ‘Finetuning’ in the upper right corner.
Choose the theme ‘Other CO2-sources’ in the grey area at the left side.
- Tick a box with an item
- Adjust the title
- Adjust the unit
- Enter ‘kg CO2 per unit’ in the left side of the screen in one of the boxes.
- Fill one of the boxes with the desired CO2-factor. After this, all the boxes will be filled with the same number. Finally you can adjust the conversion factor per year.
- When you return to the entering screen you see the text you typed yourself. After this, you need to fill in the amount.
Take a look at the result in the CO2-graphs and the CO2-footprint. This item will be taken into account for scope 3 in the CO2-footprint per scope (When you did not make scope 3 visible, then this item will not be taken into account in the CO2-footprint per scope). The item does not have any effects on the Envirometer graphics.
Scope 3 emissions in the Envirometer
Under this theme, a user of the Envirometer can add the CO2 emissions of scope 3 emissions, such as relevant raw materials or an outsourced service. The scope 3 issues are divided into 15 categories, according to the GHG protocol ‘Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard’. A table of these 15 categories can be found on the Dutch version of this help page.
