A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in ESG: The Calculating your carbon footprint from purchased electricity free webinar on January 31.
Electricity is the most ubiquitous source of emissions in the world. That means its decarbonization is critical to averting the worst of the climate crisis. Despite the fact that only 20% of U.S. electricity in 2021 came from a renewable source, renewable energy costs are falling rapidly.
Renewables are expected to be the predominant source of electricity in five to ten years. How can your company position itself to take advantage of falling renewable costs and new renewables on the grid? The first step is calculating your electricity emissions.
You can’t manage what you don’t measure. And with two different ways to account for electricity-related emissions—location- and market-based methods—calculating these emissions isn’t as straightforward as it sounds. Using the Sustain.Life platform we’ll demonstrate how to navigate these two approaches to accurately measure your emissions, set efficiency targets, cut costs, reduce your impact, and identify which locations consume the most energy.
In this webinar the Sustain.Life team will show you how to effectively calculate and understand the impact of your purchased electricity using the Sustain.Life platform.
What you’ll learn:
- The high-level projections for renewable electricity generation in the coming years
- The options you have as a business to decarbonize your electricity use
- The different approaches to calculating electricity emissions and why they matter
- How Sustain.Life automates electricity emissions calculations.
