EKOenergy and carbon accounting

Protokolli i gazit serrë

Shumica, nëse jo të gjitha kompanitë duhet të blejnë energji elektrike që është prodhuar nga dikush tjeter. Si mundë kompanië të japin llogari per emitimet e karbonit [*] që rezultojnë nga prodhimi i asaj energjie elektrike? Ose në “terminologjinë e gjurmeve te karbonit”: Si duhet ti llogarisin kompanite emitimet e sferes 2?

The Protokoli i gazit serrëeshte standard boteror per llogaritjen e gjurmeve te karbonit. . Eshte nje produkt i perbashket ne mes Institutit Botëror të Resurseve and the Këshillit Botëror të Biznesit për Zhvillim të Qëndrueshëm.

In January 2015, the Secretariat of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol published advice on this topic in a publication named Scope 2 Guidance.

The Guidance refers to EKOenergy several times. Chapter 11, which encourages companies to go one step further, refers to EKOenergy’s Climate Fund.

CDP

On page 15 and 16 of its technical notes for accounting of scope 2 emissions (i.e. emissions related to the production of purchased electricity), CDP explains how companies can do more.

“Ecolabels are a way for companies to do more with their purchases. EKOenergy, mentioned by the GHG protocol Scope 2 guidance, is such an option: it is a mark of quality which comes on top of tracking certificates. Electricity sold with the EKOenergy label fulfills strict environmental criteria and raises funds for new renewable energy projects. Involvement, transparency and ‘deeds not words’ are important principles of EKOenergy’s work.
