How to read the CO2 emissions data
As a responsible company that strives to reduce the climate impact of our operations, we measure our own carbon footprint, and support our customers’ environmental ambitions by allowing our customers to see CO2 emissions per shipment free of charge. The data is provided by EcoTransIT – one of the leading emission reporting systems, compliant with GHG protocol, GLEC Framework and EN16258.
Sustainability terminology - how to read the CO2 emissions data:
Well-to-Tank (WTT): WTT emissions consist of all processes between the source of the energy (the well) through the energy extraction, processing, storage and delivery phases up until the point of use (the tank).
Tank-to-Wheel (TTW): Emissions within the vehicle.
Well-to-Wheel (WTW): These are emissions from the full fuel life cycle and should be equivalent to the sum of WTT and TTW emissions.
The GHG Protocol and Scope 1,2,3: The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol is the leading international standard describing how CO2-emissions should be quantified and reported as CO2-equivalents under three different emission types. These are referred to as Scope 1, 2 and 3.
Scope 1 includes direct emissions from owned or controlled sources by the company (e.g. emissions from owned or controlled boilers, vehicles, forklifts etc.).
Scope 2 includes indirect emissions from purchased electricity, heat and cooling consumed by the company.
Scope 3 includes all other indirect emissions from activities not fully owned or controlled by the company (e.g. subcontracted air, sea, road and rail freight). Due to the asset-light business model of LEMAN, most of LEMAN’s CO2 emissions would be included in scope 3.
