Emission scopes in BraveGen CSR are in line with the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard. See below for clarification.

However, there are times when your data in BraveGen CSR may need to be "out-of-scope".

Out-of-scope (When to use Scope 0)

Statistics and metrics

In BraveGen CSR, if your inventory item is a statistic or metric of some kind then it should be allocated scope 0. This kind of data is used for generating reports and intensoity ratios in BraveGen CSR. For example, revenue, FTE's, floor space, production output.

Unreliable data

You may also be collecting data for emission sources but the quality of data is not yet acceptable for inclusion in your inventory. These can be set to scope 0 and set to in-scope at the point the data is considered reliable enough.


Scope 1: Direct GHG emissions occur from sources that are owned or controlled by the reporting organisation (ie, sources within the organisational boundary). For example emissions from combustion of fuel in owned or controlled vehicles and processes.

Scope 2: Electricity indirect GHG emissions occur from the generation of purchased electricity, heat or steam consumed by the reporting company.

Scope 3: Other indirect GHG emissions occur as a consequence of the activities of the company, but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company. For example, emissions from waste, business travel such as air travel, taxis and public transport, fuel consumed by your suppliers transport and processing activities and transmission and distribution losses from electricity and gas suppliers.
