A guide and white paper for common greenhouse gases.
Global warming potentials (GWPs) are used to convert emission contributions from specific greenhouse gases, such as methane, into units of carbon dioxide equivalent in order to facilitate the comparison of their environmental impact. Each greenhouse gas has its own global warming potential; for example, the GWP of methane is 25 and the GWP of nitrous oxide is 298. The source of the GWP you apply should be in line with that required by the particular standard or scheme you are reporting to, so be sure that you have chosen GWPs that are in compliance with your specific reporting goals.
This paper sets out how to correctly report the emissions associated with purchased electricity, and notes some cases where providers of reporting/measurement guidance have got it wrong.
