For industry to decrease its CO2 footprint, it will need to have an overview of it green house gas emissions from its own processes (scope 1), its energy consumption (scope 2) and the footprint from its inputs from suppliers (scope 3). To enable the calculations of scope 1 and 2 emissions, and thereby increase the […]
It would benefit public health, the economy and traffic flow if more Danes chose their bikes instead of the car, shows a new analysis carried out for the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI). Director at DI notes that more cyclists would also be beneficial to commercial mobility.
Due to rapid climate changes, extreme population increase and severe carbon emissions, cities across the world are trying to find sustainable solutions for how to cope with such issues. The City of Copenhagen and City of Aarhus, who are the front-runners of sustainable city solutions, have solved the riddle by showing how people-oriented city planning can lower carbon emission, prevent uncontrolled flooding and turn polluted seashores into green residential areas.
In the city of Rothes in Speyside, in Scotland, a combined heat and power plant delivers power equivalent to the energy consumption of 9,000 households by utilising 115,000 tonnes mask from local whisky distilleries.
