Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The United Nations Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates that human activity has led to global warming of about 1 degree, compared to pre-industrial times. According to the climate panel, there is a probable range of between 0.8 and 1.2 degrees.
In recent decades, the world has experienced the following climate changes:
Emissions and CO2 uptake (1750-2011)
70% from the combustion of fossil fuels and cement production
30% from deforestation and area changes
TAKEN UP AND ACCUMULATED IN NATURE
43% accumulated in the atmosphere
29% taken up in ecosystems
28% taken up in the ocean
It is the man-made greenhouse gases that accumulate in the atmosphere that amplify the greenhouse effect.

OUR AMBITIONS IN THIS AREA
Lerøy is committed to take its share of responsibility for greenhouse gas emissions which arise through our value chain. Both own emissions and emissions that come as a consequence of the production of goods that are part of our value chain.
HOW WE WORK IN THE AREA
Lerøy has committed to science-based targets (SBTs) . This commitment has initiated various projects regarding significant greenhouse gas emissions in the following areas:
HOW WE MEASURE OUR IMPACT
We measure the development for Scope 1 and scope 2 every quarter and the development for scope 3 every year.
Targets per KPI and Results per KPI
46% reduction in Scope 1, 2 and 3 by 2030
|Scope 1, direct greenhouse (GHG) emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by an organization (tCO2e)||141 427,5||127 810,5||119 349|
|Scope 2, Indirect Emissions from electricity purchased and used by the organization (tCO2e)||9 613,8||9 936,8||7 476|
|Scope 3, Scope 3 emissions are the result of activities from assets not owned or controlled by the reporting organization, (t CO2e)||1 469 332,7||1 331 250,6||1 364 762|
