1 Carbon Footprint Calculator for Royal Society of Arts This Carbon Calculator has been produced for Royal Society of Arts to enable the company to better understand its environmental performance in terms of its CO2 emissions. This spreadsheet demonstrates how the company s carbon footprint has been calculated for the period 01 April April The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. An essential element of the GHG Protocol are the factors associated with carbon emission outputs. This is divided into 3 distinct areas of analysis: - Scope 1 (Direct emissions - Gas, Other fuel usage on site, Business travel & transport) - Scope 2 (Indirect emissions - Electricity) - Scope 3 (Other Indirect emissions - Primarily Water, Commuter Travel, Materials, Waste) The following emissions have been included in the scope of this calculation: - Scope 1: gas, business travel, refrigerant gases - Scope 2: electricity - Scope 3: water The data used in the spreadsheet is based on publicly available conversion factors and other carbon-related data from the UK and the EU. Further information on which conversion factors have been used are found in the methodology. Start here!

2 Carbon Footprint Calculator for Royal Society of Arts Methodology This methodology explains how each emissions scope has been calculated in order to give the calculation transparency. Publicly available conversion factors from 2011 Guidelines to Defra / DECC's GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting (v. 1.2, updated 19/08/11) have been used throughout the calculation and are referred to in the methodologies below. Gas: The average conversion factor from Annex 1, Table 1c was used. Natural gas consumption figures quoted in kwh by suppliers in the UK are generally calculated (from the volume of gas used) on a Gross Calorific Value (GCV) basis rather than a Net Calorific Value (NCV) basis, hence why Table 1c has been used rather than Table 1d. Transport and travel: Data for travel and transport is obtained from the relevant tables in Annex 6: - Data for Green Tomatoes Toyota Prius taxis is obtained from Table 6d - Data for Swiss Cottage taxis is obtained from Table 6k - this is calculated using total vehicle miles. - Data on public transport t (national rail, London Underground d etc.) is obtained from Table 6k. The following assumptions and estimations have been made where data provided d is not specific enough to enable an accurate calculation: - Journeys involving travel on the London Underground have been estimated at an average of 5 miles - Assumptions have also been made as to the London station for journeys where the train could depart from more than one station - Data on flights is obtained from Table 6l. Refrigerant gases: Fugitive missions from refrigerant gases are expressed in terms of kg of CO2 equivalent (written as CO2e), which is the universal unit of measurement that allows the global warming potential of different greenhouse gases (GHGs) to be compared. This calculation has used Method A: Screening Method as set out in Annex 8 to estimate emissions from refrigeration and air conditioning based on the type of equipment used and emissions factors. This approach requires relatively little actual data collection but it is important to note that there is a high degree of uncertainty with these emission factors. There is at present no GWP conversion factor for R417A, therefore an average has been calculated from the three gases which make up the blend: R134a, R125 and R600. Electricity: The average conversion factor from Defra/DECC s Annex 3, Table 3c was used. This table contains emission factors per kwh consumed i.e. electricity coming off the grid for the final consumer, including transmission/distribution losses, and is deemed to be the most suitable for the calculation. Water: Like refrigerant gases, emissions for water use are expressed in terms of CO2e. Annex 9, Table 9a sets out lifecycle conversion factors for emissions associated with the supply and treatment of water and the organisation s buildings and transport. This calculation is based on water consumption only. RSA Carbon footprint calculator Page 2 Printed 26/10/2011

3 Carbon Footprint Calculator for Royal Society of Arts Recommendations Following the calculation for the footprinting year (April April 2011), a number of recommendations have been made to simplify the data collation for future calculations. 1). The majority of water meter readings and approximately half of the electricity meter readings were based on estimates, and it is recommended that actual meter readings are taken on a regular basis to ensure more accurate calculations in the future. This may also highlight any inaccuracies with bills and ensures that RSA are only paying for the actual energy and water they are using. 2). A more accurate calculation on CO2e from fugitive emissions from refrigerant equipment can be carried out using Method B: Simplified Material Balance Method. This requires much more information to be obtained, such as the amount of refrigerant used to top up equipment during servicing, but is recommended for larger users of refrigerant or those who expect emissions from refrigerant leakage to be significant. Given the number of refrigerant units the RSA has, use of this method in the future should be considered. 3). By far the largest carbon emissions are attached to the use of energy within the RSA headquarters. As such, the organisation should focus primarily on improvements within the building if they are looking at reducing emissions and related costs. Ecus can provide building appraisals and renewable energy feasibility studies to look into improvements and alterations. RSA Carbon footprint calculator Page 3 Printed 26/10/2011
