Emissions

Ashland’s greenhouse gases are the result of our consumption of direct and indirect energy sources.  Ashland uses The Greenhouse Gas Protocol: A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard for guiding the reporting of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.

The direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, also known as Scope 1 emissions under the Greenhouse Gas Protocol are emissions from sources owned or controlled by Ashland.

The indirect GHG emissions, also known as Scope 2 GHG emissions under the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, are emissions from sources that are not controlled by Ashland, such as electricity and steam.
