Update of the program in Greece
9 organisations participated and completed the voluntary programme in Greece:
- 6 public organisations, all of which are municipalities,
- 2 manufacturing companies, one of which is an aluminium foil company and one is a food industry company and
- 1 is a service company, a motorway operation and maintenance company
For public organisations, based on the breakdown of emissions by ISO/TR 14069:2013, the highest emissions were observed in Scope 2 for all organisations. The share of Scope 2 emissions compared to the total varied between 58% and 80%. Scope 3 emissions accounted for the second largest share of emissions in four out of the six public organisations that participated in the project. The share of Scope 2 emissions to the total varied between 11% and 28%. Scope 1 accounted for the second largest share in two organisations. The share of Scope 1 emissions to the total varied between 8% and 18%.
The breakdown of GHG emissions by activities shows that the highest emissions were observed in electricity consumption by public lighting and by pumping and/or drilling stations, where applicable. Other categories with significant impact on emissions, depending on the organisation included the municipal fleet, education facilities and sports facilities.
Private manufacturing companies
For private manufacturing companies, the highest emissions were observed in Scope 3. The share of Scope 3 to total emissions accounted for 71% and 94%. Depending on the energy sources used within the organisation, Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions were the second largest emitting sector. Scope 2 accounted for a share of the total between 6% and 12%; while Scope 1 accounted for a share of the total between less than 1% and 17%.
Private service companies
For private service companies, the highest emissions were observed in the use stages category of Scope 3, while among other categories, Scope 2, electricity consumption also had a significant contribution in the company’s emissions. Due to the nature of the companies, Scope 3 emissions for the use stages category made up a very large contribution to total emissions, while the results without taking into account this category were differentiated and showed significant emissions related to Scope 2 activities.
According to the carbon footprint calculation of the service company, the total emissions from the activities of the company reached 281 775 tonnes CO2 equivalent in 2016. Based on the breakdown of emissions by ISO/TR 14069:2013, Scope 3 accounted for the largest part (93%), followed by Scope 2 (5%) and Scope 1 (1%). Among Scope 3 categories, use stages made up a 93% share of the total.
The breakdown of GHG emissions by activities shows that the highest emissions were observed in the use stages – diesel consumption (57%), use stages – gasoline consumption (36%), electricity consumption for the operation of the motorway, which made up 4% of the total emissions; followed by electricity consumption for company facilities with a 1% share of the total and diesel consumption by the company fleet for business travels (1%).
