While each business will see different benefits from carbon mitigation some benefits are common to all. Such as: greater understanding of carbon in energy; the cost of energy; greater energy efficiency and cost savings. Plus there are significant marketing benefits from taking a leadership role in the environment. An overwhelming majority of the population consider themselves environment conscious and concerned about climate change and seek out ways to express their concern with lifestyle choices.

Scope 2 includes purchased electricity, heat, and steam. Scope 3 comprises all other indirect emissions.
