Why are Scope 2 Emissions important for Kiwi Business?
Scope 2 emissions are critical because they represent a significant portion of a company's carbon footprint. In some cases, scope 2 emissions can account for up to 90% of a company's total greenhouse gas emissions.
As such, companies that are serious about reducing their carbon footprint must take measures to reduce their scope 2 emissions.
How do companies measure their Scope 2 Emissions?
Companies typically measure their scope 2 emissions by using the market-based method or the location-based method.
The market-based method involves purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs) or carbon offsets to offset a company's scope 2 emissions.
The location-based method, on the other hand, involves using the emissions factor of the grid in which a company is located to calculate its scope 2 emissions.
What are the benefits of reducing Scope 2 Emissions?
Reducing scope 2 emissions can benefit companies in numerous ways.

How can companies reduce their Scope 2 Emissions?
Several strategies can be used to reduce scope 2 emissions.
One way is to improve energy efficiency. By using energy-efficient technologies, companies can reduce the amount of electricity or heat they consume, which, in turn, reduces their scope 2 emissions.
Another way to reduce scope 2 emissions is to switch to renewable energy sources. Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydroelectric power generate electricity without emitting any greenhouse gases.
Where that's not possible, businesses can opt to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates to offset energy they are consuming from non-renewable resources.
