Appmore has calculated GHG emissions because they contribute to climate change, which has significant environmental, economic, and social impacts. By measuring and tracking GHG emissions Appmore can better understand their environmental impact and identify opportunities for reducing emissions. This can help to mitigate the risks associated with climate change, such as more frequent and severe weather events, rising sea levels, and negative impacts on human health and well-being.
The calculation is based on the GHG Protocol, which is a widely-used accounting framework for measuring and managing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It was developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and is widely recognized as the global standard for GHG accounting. The GHG Protocol guides how to calculate and report GHG emissions from various sources, including direct emissions from sources such as fuel combustion, and indirect emissions from sources such as purchased electricity. It also offers guidance on how to set emission reduction targets and track progress over time. The GHG Protocol is used by companies, governments, and other organizations to understand their environmental impact, set targets for reducing emissions, and report on progress towards these targets.
As of now, we have reported the scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions. We closely monitor GHG emissions/sales metric as it describes the emissions of the value-added by Appmore for our clients. For more information, contact [email protected].
