DCT, Incorporated (DCT) reports Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions using the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard published by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the World Resources Institute.
DCT is a corporation which provides operations and maintenance services to the Federal government and others on a contract basis. Greenhouse Gas Emissions produced by refrigeration and air conditioning equipment and other such equipment at these facilities are owned and reported by the Federal government or other customers. All are in the United States. DCT limits its reporting to equipment owned by DCT and to costs for which DCT is responsible for payment.
DCT’s GHG Inventory is derived from the Environmental Protection Agency’s schedule of “Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories” at https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2016-09/documents/emission-factors_nov_2015_v2.pdf
Typically, greenhouse gas emissions are reported in units of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Gases are converted to CO2e by multiplying by their global warming potential (GWP). The emission factors listed in this document have been converted to CO2e. To do so, the emissions were multiplied by the corresponding 100-Year GWP (25 for CH4 and 298 for N 2O).
Inventory for the period 10-01-2015 to 09-30-2016 (Base Year)
464.296 tons C02 Equivalent Total
96.78 tons C02 which is the same for C02 Equivalent
4.19 tons CH4, 104.72 tons CH4 in C02 Equivalent
.88 tons N2O, 262.79 tons N2O in C02 Equivalent
DCT produces no Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC’s), Perfluorocarbons (PFC’s) or Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).
109.16 tons C02 Equivalent Total
24.46 tons C02 which is the same for C02 Equivalent
.40 tons CH4, 9.96 tons CH4 in C02 Equivalent
.25 tons N2O, 74.43 tons N2O in C02 Equivalent
Goals for Reductions
Scope 1: DCT replaces vehicles cyclically and each new generation has lower greenhouse emissions.
Scope 2: DCT strives to replace all light bulbs, appliances, etc. with lower energy use products.
There have been no conditions (such as mergers or acquisitions, outsourcing, insourcing, changes in reporting boundaries or calculation methodologies, etc.) to date which would trigger a recalculation of the base year.
