Solstad presents an independent review of the company’s carbon footprint based on an analysis of the total energy consumption related to corporate operations. The carbon footprint gives a general overview of the company’s greenhouse gas-emissions converted into CO2‐equivalents, and it is based on reported data from internal and external systems.
The analysis makes it possible for us to identify possible measures to reduce the energy consumption and thus also our overall carbon footprint. The purposes of the carbon indicators are to measure the carbon intensity per employee and per value creation, in addition to making our environmental impact and measures accessible and transparent.
The analysis is based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative (GHG protocol), the most widely used standard for measuring greenhouse gas-emissions, developed by World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The GHG protocol consists of two accounting standards explaining how to calculate and report GHG emissions and was the basis for the ISO standard 14064‐I.
