Decarbonisation: Reducing Emissions for a Sustainable Future
Until recently the focus of industry was on reducing energy consumption in order to reduce costs or increase security of supply. More recently, the focus has changed to pursue decarbonisation of the energy use to align with the expectations of stakeholders.
Simply put, decarbonisation is the process of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere as a result of an organisations activities, with the goal of mitigating the impacts of climate change. This involves transitioning away from the use of fossil fuels and other high-emissions activities and replacing them with low-carbon alternatives, such as renewable energy sources and sustainable transportation options. Our assessment will cover Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, which means we’ll help you identify all of the sources of greenhouse gas emissions associated with your business operations. These three scopes include emissions from your own activities (Scope 1), purchased energy (Scope 2), and all other indirect emissions associated with your supply chain (Scope 3).

"I came across your videos which were very useful for the ‘Management of Hazardous Materials and Processes’ module that I teach, which includes a section on containment. As many of our students have never worked in industry it always helps to have good visuals/videos to help explain material."
