Greenhouse gas (GHG) scope

1
Direct GHG emissions produced by sources that an organization owns or controls
2
Indirect GHG emissions related to purchased energy (electricity, district heating and cooling) that are a consequence of an organization's activities but physically occur at sources that another organization owns or controls
