Carbon Footprint Calculator
Project Code: 137
This invention presents a carbon footprint calculator. It calculates carbon emission from organization activities based on differing formulations of user input. This invention offers a comprehensive carbon reporting solution, which also covers the operations of raw water intake until process of distributions.
This system comprises of over 500 databases both from local and internationally.
The Carbon footprint is
measure of the amount of carbon dioxide (GHG) emitted through the combustion of
fossil fuels represented in a product. In
the case of a business organization, it is the amount of CO2 emitted
either directly or indirectly as a result of its everyday operations. GHG emissions cannot be directly measured, GHG emissions must be calculated using measured “activity” data for parameters such as quantities of fuel combusted, electricity
consumed, or vehicle miles driven. Inefficient energy and raw
material use within corporation activities has been a big contributor to carbon
emission. In Malaysia, the government is committed to reduce 40% of the nation carbon emission in
2020. Mandatory reporting under consideration in 2016 onwards under ‘MyCarbon’
scheme has been introduced. By 2016, all companies
to be listed on BSKL need to submit their carbon report under MyCarbon scheme
by Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment
