Ghg emission credit generation and utilization system

A method for generating and utilizing greenhouse gas credits includes collecting a first greenhouse gas and converting the first greenhouse gas to a second greenhouse gas to produce a conversion product, wherein the second greenhouse gas has a global warming potential less than a global warming potential associated with the first greenhouse gas. The method also includes determining a global warming potential reduction associated with the conversion. The method further includes determining a quantity of greenhouse gas credits associated with the conversion based on the global warming potential reduction. The method also includes marketing one or more of the conversion product and the greenhouse gas credits associated with the conversion.

Modeling tool for determining an organization's supply chain emissions footprint

A CO2e modeling system is implemented via a host server that is remotely accessible by a large number of clients (organizations) and suppliers of goods and services to the clients. The host server accesses a database containing CO2e emission-related data from a large number of suppliers. The client, when determining their indirect CO2e emissions resulting from their supply chain network, then identifies to the host server, via the web, the various suppliers used by the client and the client's amount of usage of the various suppliers. The host server uses its stored conversion factors and other data from the database to calculate the client's indirect CO2e emissions as a result of the client's usage of the particular suppliers. The server may calculate the total CO2e emissions generated by the entire chain of suppliers that are involved with providing a particular product to the client.

Mitigating or eliminating the carbon footprint of human activities

A method for neutralizing or reducing the carbon footprint from carbon dioxide emissions due to human activities related to the combustion or use of carbon containing fuels. This method includes an initial step of capturing carbon dioxide and then chemically recycling it to form and provide a permanent inexhaustible supply of carbon containing fuels or products, which subsequently can be combusted or used without increasing the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere. Thus, the current lifestyles that rely extensively on conventional carbon containing fuels and products can continue indefinitely without harming the environment to preserve and even improve the earth's atmosphere for the benefit of future generations.

Electronic systems and methods for aggregating and distributing environmental credits

An electronic system for offering and allocating environmental offset credits by a service provider comprises an environmental credit management server in communication with the service provider and adapted to manage a consumer's selection and allocation of environmental offset credits. The system includes, in one embodiment, a database management server in communication with the service provider and the consumer and a plurality of environmental offset credit providers in communication with the database management server. The database management server is adapted to store information concerning the plurality of environmental credit service providers and the application management server is adapted to selectively provide information to the consumer concerning the plurality of environmental credit providers.

Sustainability systems and methods directed to food compositions

A method of calculating the carbon or greenhouse gas footprint of a food composition includes determining the CO2 or greenhouse gas emission of each ingredient by associating a total energy value with the ingredient, determining the proportion of the total energy value contributed by each of at least one energy source, where each energy source has a characteristic CO2 or greenhouse gas emissions value, and then calculating a CO2 or greenhouse gas emission value for the ingredient based on the GHG emission values of each contributing energy source. Also, optimizing the CO2 or greenhouse gas emissions in the formulation of pet food employs this method.

Graphical technique for visualizing effects of environmental emission reductions

An emission management system is implemented via a host server that is accessible to a large number of clients (organizations) using a website. Based on data input by a client relating to actual usage of resources, the client's past CO2e emission over time is calculated by the host server and displayed to the client on the website in the form of a wedge chart, with emissions along the y-axis and time along the x-axis. The server software also extrapolates the past emissions to display baseline predicted future emissions, assuming no reduction strategies are implemented. The client also inputs an emission target level and proposes one or more strategies for reducing the baseline level to achieve the target level. The server converts each strategy to a CO2e emission reduction and layers the different reductions between the baseline level and the target so the client can graphically see the effect of each strategy on achieving the target.

Supply and distribution method and system which considers environmental or "green" practices

The carbon footprint of a supply and distribution chain is modeled as a carbon dioxide (CO2) cost that can be considered alongside monetary or dollar ($) costs in supply, manufacturing, and distribution operations. Databases on products and services, supply chain policies, and targets, costs, and/or greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are used by a GHG calculator to output carbon footprint data and/or by a supply chain optimizer to output supply chain planning and policy data. Client computers obtain carbon footprint and/or supply chain planning and policy data by querying a server with access to a database storing calculated carbon footprint data. Input data to the GHG calculator is updated based on choices made by users of the system.
