Carbon Emissions definition

Carbon Emissions where used in this Part means carbon emissions as defined in Additional Note 11 to Chapter 99 of Part 1 of Schedule No. 1.”
Carbon Emissions for a period means the total amount of carbon equivalent greenhouse gas emissions associated with Energy Consumption during that period, expressed in metric tonnes of equivalent carbon dioxide (tCO2e) and calculated using the following formula:
Carbon Emissions means carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted when fossil fuels are burned in vehicles, buildings, industrial processes and so on. CO2 is one of the Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) identified by the Kyoto Protocol, which warm the atmosphere. There are six greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorocarbons, often referred to together as ‘carbon dioxide equivalent’ (CO2e). Nitrous oxide from diesel and petrol combustion is a potent greenhouse gas and also prejudicial to human health when inhaled.
