Carbon intensity measures the quantity of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted by an organization in relation to its revenue (tons of CO2 equivalent/revenue). The GHG emissions considered are the organization’s direct emissions (Scope 1), that is, those under
its control (for example, emissions resulting from its industrial processes). Indirect GHG emissions resulting from the production and distribution of electricity, heat and steam (Scope 2) are also taken into consideration. Carbon intensity can be used
to evaluate organizations that stand out from their peers in terms of GHG emissions in their internal activities.
