We believe that measuring our environmental impact is important and part of doing good business. Each year we conduct a comprehensive assessment to report on our full impact of operations including:
- Direct emissions (consumption of energy)
- Indirect emissions (production of electricity purchased by NSLC)
- Other emissions (transportation including trucking and shipping)
Total emissions have been consistently decreasing since 2008; 2014 emissions are down 18% from the currently used base year of 2008. Recommendations for future GHG Inventory is to update baseline year to 2010 to reflect changes in boundary and calculation methodology which would be up to date with current best practices and repeatable year-over-year.
