An inventory of all sources of greenhouse gas emissions is the total amount of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent produced over the entire business operation, compiled to ISO 14064-1 standard. For comparison, 5.23 Tonnes of CO
are emitted by the average passenger vehicle in one year.
2016 Total (CO
Scope 1 Emissions:
These emissions come from direct release of greenhouse gases, primarily from the consumption of fossil fuels from space heating or vehicle use.
2016 Scope 1: 271.44t
Scope 2 Emissions:
Electricity consumption requires generation. A share of Ontario’s energy grid comes from fossil fuel generation, and this share is reflected in Scope 2, or “energy indirect” emissions.
2016 Scope 2: 87.72t
Scope 3 Emissions:
All other indirect emissions are categorized in Scope 3. Standard inventories include scope 3 emissions from solid waste removal, water and waste water usage, but can also include many categories from purchased air and rail travel to employee commuting to work.
2016 Scope 3: 0.98t
Opened a newly-built facility in spring 2015 and set a baseline on first full year of operation.
Plans in the works for efficiency upgrades.
