Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

Gases that trap infrared rays in the atmosphere, contributing to global heating. Examples include carbon dioxide Carbon Dioxide (CO2) EmissionsCarbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas found naturally in Earth’s atmosphere.

It is also emitted from…Read on اقرأ المزيد (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), fluorinated gases and water vapor. When expressing GHG emissions in CO2 equivalents (CO2e), this means that the heating effect of other greenhouse gases is mathematically “converted” into CO2 for a certain time frame, often 100 years, which in that case is expressed as Global Warming Potential 100 (GWP100).
