What is CO2e?

CO2e is an abbreviation for ‘Carbon Dioxide Equivalent’ and is the internationally recognised measure of greenhouse emission.
Greenhouse gas is a collective term for those gases which reduce the loss of heat from the earth's atmosphere. CO2e is the most common greenhouse gas.

Net Savings

The net savings are calculated over the course of the year. These net savings take into account the cost of change.
