Carbon Foot-print Evaluation and Calculation
Carbon Footprint Evaluation and Calculation
Global warming is a major concern all over the world. There are many governments focusing on how to build a low-carbon economy characterized by low energy consumption, pollution and emissions. This growing awareness of the need for environmental protection has started to pay attention to the carbon footprint they produce during production and operation.
In Our World:
Carbon footprint assessment (PAS2050/ISO14067/GHG protocol) is a new measure of the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on our Environment and indicates the total emission volume of CO2 and other greenhouse gas of products or services in its life cycle from raw materials, manufacturing, transportation, consumer use and disposal/recycling. In Carbon Footprint label, it will be displayed the volume of CO2 of products/services to all consumers and purchasers.
In Hong Kong:
Energy-cum-carbon Audit Projects (ECA)
This Programme is to encourage existing building owners to carry out energy-cum-carbon audits, with a view to systematically reviewing the use of energy and quantifying the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with their buildings, and to identify opportunities for enhancements of energy efficiency and conservation and reductions in the level of GHG emissions arising from building operations.
Carbon "Less" Certificates Scheme
The Carbon "Less" Certificates scheme aims to recognize those buildings or organizations that achieved a verified absolute reduction of overall carbon emissions. Specific objectives are to:
Encourage local buildings and organizations to identify, and take measures to reduce their carbon footprints;
Provide recognition to participants according to their respective levels of achievements in carbon footprint reduction; and
Facilitate reporting of third-party verified achievements of overall carbon footprint reduction.
