Introduction to the GreenHouse Gas protocol and calculate your organization's climate impact - scope 1-2

The European Climate Law mandates a binding target of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050. In line with this, large companies must follow the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) rules, backed by the EU Taxonomy. From 2024, large companies must report their greenhouse gas emissions across their entire value chain covering Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.
