This App Displays Carbon Emission of Dr Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University, Pune Campus.
The data of carbon emission is collected via a web-application. Data is entered on monthly basis according to 3 Scopes based on GHG Protocol Corporate Standard.
The 3 Scopes are:
Scope 1 - Direct GHG Emissions
Direct GHG emissions occur from sources that are owned or controlled by the company, for example, emissions from combustion in owned or controlled boilers, furnaces, vehicles, etc.; emissions from chemical production in owned or controlled process equipment.
Scope 2 - Electricity GHG Emissions
Scope 2 accounts for GHG emissions from the generation of purchased electricity consumed by a company. Purchased electricity is defined as electricity that is purchased or otherwise brought into the organizational boundary of the company. Scope 2 emissions physically occur at the facility where electricity is generated.
Scope 3 - Indirect GHG Emissions
Scope 3 is an optional reporting category that allows for the treatment of all other indirect emissions. Scope 3 emissions are a consequence of the activities of the company, but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company. Some examples of scope 3 activities are extraction and production of purchased materials; transportation of purchased fuels; and use of products and services.
This system of accounting carbon emission's will promote Carbon-Neutral Campuses and help achieve sustainable development goals (SDGs) set by United Nations.
