A company can’t always tell you exactly what it uses to produce the green canopy it uses, and the process can take months or even years.
It’s the work of a team of workers, a large number of which can be sourced through government and private agencies.
A company’s use of green canopy is one of the factors that goes into determining whether its greenhouse gas emissions are below a target, which is the legal requirement to meet the carbon reduction target.
While it’s not possible to determine how much green canopy a company uses, we know that it typically uses more than half the amount of green material it says it does.
We also know that the use of greenhouse gas is a key factor in the carbon footprint of a company.
Below is a breakdown of how much greenhouse gas each company produces, how much it emits, and how much is a “fair” value for the carbon savings it produces.
