Globally average temperatures have been increasing each year breaking the record of the previous one. The natural calamities have increased across the world. We are saying much more frequent floods storms wildfires that are causing damage to life and economy both. At the centre of all these calamities lies the ever-growing greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Scientists have read the increasing Global temperatures with the increasing Greenhouse gas emissions. The United Nation form the United Nation Framework convention on climate change a letter on a protocol was signed under the United nation which was called the Kyoto Protocol.
This was the first Global effort to Greenhouse gas emissions.
Under this protocol several countries are given target to reduce their Greenhouse gas emissions. Cap and trade mechanism was also developed so that the developed countries can undertake projects in the developing Nations and meet their emission reduction targets.The first commitment period for this was from 2008 and 2012. After the first commitment period few countries pulled out from Kyoto Protocol. Slowly the greenhouse gas emission reduction responsibilities also shifted and the private sector started taking notice of it along with actions to reduce Greenhouse gas emissions.
In the recent past it has been seen that several Global Corporates and multinationals have estimated their carbon footprint and have committed emission reduction targets. Carbon footprint is the measure of total Greenhouse gas emissions emitted from an organisation or individual or event at any activities during a fixed tenure. Normally the carbon footprint is calculated and reported for one year. Also the greenhouse gases reported under the carbon footprint are normally those gases that were covered under Kyoto Protocol which includes Carbon dioxide, Methane nitrous oxide, CFCs and HFCs.
Carbon footprint estimation is also catching up in the Middle East as well. We have seen several leaders disclose their Greenhouse gas emissions. Some of the leaders who have already disclose their carbon footprint includes corporates like Majid Alphathum Aramex Dubai electricity and Water Authority Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority. So boards government as well as private sector companies has started reporting on greenhouse gas emissions and have also started taking measures to reduce this emissions. GE3S has been working as a carbon footprint advisor for several companies in the Middle East and Asian region. Our services include carbon footprint estimation carbon neutral certification, carbon strategy development etc.
