What are we offsetting as a carbon neutral business?
Our calculation of KYOCERA Group UK's operational carbon emissions (measured in CO2 equivalents) includes:
- Direct (scope 1) emissions – from gas central heating and fuel for company-owned vehicles.
- Electricity-related (scope 2) emissions - a calculation of the emissions from the generation the electricity we consume, based on the UK energy grid's mix of energy sources.
- Certain indirect (scope 3) emissions - employees' work-related travel in their own vehicles which is expensed to our business.
