About GHG Protocol
The GHG Protocol is the de-facto standard-setting organisation for greenhouse-gas accounting. As well as producing guidance on estimating and categorising emissions, it also provides a set of the most commonly-used emission factors including energy consumption, transportation, waste management, and industrial processes.Visit GHG Protocol website

CO2e - CO2 - CH4 - N2O
The source reports emissions in gCO2e/kWh, which have been converted to kgCO2e/kWh to ensure consistency.

This dataset has been deprecated because multiple emission factors failed to meet our data validation standards. To maintain consistency with the original source, we are still including them for the sake of completeness. We are awaiting a revised version of the dataset from the provider and we will update our dataset to align with these modifications once received.

- Go to IPCC
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a United Nations body that assesses the scientific evidence related to climate change and offers guidance to governments and policymakers on climate-related issues. IPCC provides a range of emission factors in their reports including energy-related emissions, industrial processes, agriculture, and land use and waste management activities.
- Go to MfE
The Ministry for the Environment (MfE) is the government agency responsible for environmental policy and regulation in New Zealand, providing guidance and resources on greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting and reporting including emission factors of different GHG emissions sources.
- Go to WRAP
WRAP provides a comprehensive database for scope 3 food and drink emission factors, employing a consistent methodology that enables businesses to measure and track their supply chain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. To form this comprehensive repository, WRAP synthesizes information from numerous distinct sources including academic publications among others.
