ACCG399 Case Assignment, Session one, 2013, Quality Equipment Hire Ltd. (QEH) ACTIVITY 1 – Briefly discuss the 4 different methods of determining Scope 1 Emissions and why the first method is most appropriate for QEH.
An organisation should calculate the direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the emissions sources associated with its boundary. Greenhouse gas emissions from scope 1 and scope 2 emissions sources should be calculated in accordance with the methods and guidance provided in the NGER (Measurement) Determination. Scope 1 emissions a reporting company's direct emissions. Direct GHG emissions occurring from sources that are owned or controlled by the company (ie, sources within the organisational…show more content… Why the first method is most appropriate for QEH
Method one is appropriate for QEH because the source of the emission is fuel combustion which is homogenous across the organisation. QEH is using liquid and solid fuel in their transport, which have homogenous source. Emission by this method is easily estimated by referring to reportable data on fossil fuel consumption. The volume of consumed fuel in tones can be easily determined which are used in this method to calculate emitted carbon dioxide. Chemical properties of fossil fuels used in vehicles is uniform and can be easily determined using the tools provided in the method. If there are many types of emission sources available then methods 2,3 and 4 will give the perfect results in calculating the emissions. The range of emission sources covered in the determination includes the combustion of fuels for energy, fugitive emissions from the extraction of coal, oil and gas, industrial processes (such as producing cement and steel) and waste management
ACTIVITIES 2 – Briefly explain Scope 2 emissions and how Scope 2 emissions from electricity purchased from the main electricity grid in NSW, Victoria and Queensland are calculated.
In the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard, Scope 2 covers “emissions from the generation of purchased electricity consumed by the company.” Purchased electricity is defined as electricity that is purchased or otherwise brought into the
