Climate Connect Digital (CCD) has taken the initiative to assess its carbon footprint, and report its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for FY 2021-22, These calculations cover all direct and indirect emissions related to the company’s business operations.
As a climate-tech company, CCD is committed to helping businesses transition towards net zero. It is serious about measuring and tracking its own carbon footprint and demonstrating accountability; it has prepared a GHG emissions and offset disclosure report for FY 2021-22. This report is as per the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard methodology and India GHG program. This exercise will not only help CCD to discover optimal emissions reduction opportunities but also help to identify the most relevant climate risks for the business.
A third-party organization, TUV India Pvt. Ltd. has verified the emissions data in this report. The calculations of GHG inventory are verified against the requirement of methods as stipulated under ISO 14064-1. The scope of this report covers emissions from business operations at CCD’s leased office spaces, and the business activities of employees (112), consultants (33) and interns (4) spread across the United Kingdom, Spain, Malaysia, and India.
In line with the GHG Protocol, CCD is reporting emissions as follows
Scope 1 – This is not applicable to CCD’s operations as the company is not involved in direct emissions from fuel burning and does not own property or combustion engine vehicles which would also require consideration.
Scope 2 – This is calculated to be 1.030 tCO2e from purchased electricity related to the leased workspaces.
Scope 3 – This covers emissions from business travel, customer-domain cloud server usage, transmission and distribution losses, and work-from-home. This is calculated as per GHGP/ISO 14064-1 to be 141.179 tCO2e. Work-from-home emissions account for a substantial share under Scope 3.
