Anticipating Future Legislative Requirements
In 2011 WKC assisted a major oil refining company in the UAE with an extensive programme to quantify their entire organizational GHG emissions in a systematic manner. The project was developed in anticipation of future legislation related to Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction in the UAE, opportunities offered by the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and existing regulatory requirements to report GHG’s. This involved the development of a “carbon footprint tool” to allow accurate on-going reporting in line with international standards. Emissions Monitoring The programme also included a source testing campaign to corroborate calculated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from major combustion sources with actual measurements, to confirm the accuracy of the carbon footprint tool.
