Measuring and monitoring your carbon footprint is the first step to developing a successful carbon management strategy.
The Programme's measure and monitoring processes have been based on the GHG Protocol methodology for defining emissions sources with suitable adaptation to all port operations.
The Programme focuses on the emissions directly controlled by the port and specifically covers all direct emissions such as stationary and mobile sources and process emissions (scope 1).
Indirect energy emissions such as emissions from purchased electricity, cooling, heating etc. (scope 2) are also covered. All other indirect emissions sources fall under a separate category (scope 3).
Carbon Positive's team of consultants will help you identify the emissions sources categories, define the geographical and operational boundaries of the port, revise the measuring and monitoring methodologies if needed, collect data and finally establish processes for accurate emission measurement and monitoring.
Finally a Carbon Management Plan will be developed that includes all emissions sources under the direct control of the port (scope 1 and 2) and sets reduction targets in cooperation with the Designated Port Officer (DPO).
+ Planning of programme execution with the DPO
+ Collection of port's technical and operational data (current and historical)
+ Port data analysis prior to energy audit
+ Execution of a real time scientific Energy Audit
+ Develop and audit CO2 inventory
+ Reporting and analysis in accordance with data supplied by the port authority
+ Analytical base lines for port's energy performance are set
+ Carbon Positive certificate of phase1
