Emissions targets set under the 2015 Paris Agreement – and new pledges under the Glasgow Climate Pact – have far-reaching and material implications for the long-term corporate strategies of every player in the energy and extractive industries. 

Worldwide, greenhouse gas emissions are around 50 billion tCO2e each year. The majority of those emissions – about three-quarters of it – is associated with either the production or consumption of energy. The remainder comes from other sources, primarily from land use and agriculture. 

In our latest series, we answer some of the most asked questions about carbon management. Watch below to find out more about emissions: 


What are the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions?


What are some ways to reduce emissions?


How can companies approach emissions reductions plans?

The first step in developing a decarbonisation plan starts with measuring and understanding the sources of your emissions. We provide reliable, accurate, and granular emissions data. Our data allows you to interrogate emissions and understand them at an asset level.
