Why Green House Gas (GHG)Accounting is Necessary & Relevant

Bibek Roy

Global Temperature rise is a major issue:

The combined land and ocean temperature rise is happening at a rate of average 0.07°C (0.13°F) per decade since 1880.

Average rate of increase since 1981 (0.18°C / 0.32°F) is more than twice, can you imagine ?

This has profound impact on Sea level rise, extreme weather condition(as seen by frequent forest fire in California, USA), Human health, Glacier depletion etc.

All the above are due to very high concentration of CO2 (Carbon Di-Oxide), which is one of the potent Green House gas (GHG) and has a very long life span in the atmosphere.

CO2 and other GHG gases are released due to various Industrial activities, burning of fossil fuels for electricity & heat, Transportation, agricultural activities etc.

CO2 concentration has increased around 47% from the beginning of Industrial age (1760 to 1820).

The average Global temperature on the Earth has risen by 1 Deg C since 1880.

Paris Agreement-COP-21/CMP-11

At COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015, Parties to the UNFCCC reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future. (Source UNFCC Climate change).

The agreement set the global objective of limiting global temperature rise to not more than 2 Deg C, above Pre-industrial levels (1750-1850). Also put effort to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5 Deg C, above pre-industrail level.

In view of the above serious situation, GHG accounting has taken prominant place in the Industries and the GHG inventory record keeping has been started.

Though presently, GHG accounting is Voluntary, but looking to the grime situation & threat to Sustainability, industries have come out to declare the GHG inventory and also chalked out strategy to reduce the GHG inventory by introducing new & efficient technologies.

In this part I am showing why GHG accounting is important & methods to be followed for GHG accounting, in the power point presentation.

  1. The Technical as well as environmental' Aspects Presented Beautifully, with a hint of simplicity in understanding as far as the intention to reach maximum amount to technically enriched minds are concerned .
    Approch to the Matter is Highly Appreciated with a personified flair of compactness yet keeping it to the core of Technical Persona.
    Appreciation , well Deserved.
