So, is green technology the solution to reducing our carbon emissions? Alternative energy, (also known as clean energy for a reason) could provide us with a cleaner, renewable and cheaper source for generating electricity compared to traditional energy sources.

The most common renewable energy sources available to are listed below:
Scope 1, 2 and 3 are a way of categorising the different types of emissions that a company emits - directly and indirectly within their own operations and supply chain.
Scope 1 - covers direct Green House Gas (GHG) emissions that a company makes.
Scope 2 - covers indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling.
Scope 3 - This is where it gets a little difficult. Scope 3 emissions include all of the emissions not produced by the company itself, but these emissions indirectly impact the company's value chain.
