This page outlines the emission factor databases used in the software. Our calculators utilize the latest internationally published emission factor databases.
We look after emission factors from global databases updating regularly so you don't have to. Our scientists bring a powerful, comprehensive catalogue of emission factors to your finger tips. You can also import your own emission factors.
What are Emission Factors
An emission factor is a coefficient which allows to convert activity data into GHG emissions. Basically, it is the average emission rate of a given source, relative to units of activity or process/processes.
