What are the databases produced during the project?
One of the project’s main step is to develop a national emission factor database to support organisations from each country in the definition and the implementation of their approach of carbon accountability. Thus, 5 national databases containing at least 300 emission factors have been produced, with among them 150 country-specific EFs. Emission factors are the key point of any calculation method, so it is major to use standard values in a national level.
The EF databases available are focused on the category of emissions from main sectors (energy, refrigerant fluids, freight and passenger transport, waste processing and purchase of good such as agricultural products, chemicals, glass, cardboards, metals).
The main sectors identified for the national databases followed a methodological structure of report to insure uniformity between the databases.
The download of the 5 national databases (Italy, Croatia, Greece, Hungary and France) will be soon available !!
