Carbon footprint

Galp contributes to the development of appropriate measures to overcome the energy and climate challenges.

We pursue this goal by:

  • promoting an efficient use of energy;
  • integrating new processes and applying the best technologies to avoid pollutant emissions;
  • selecting fuels that minimise atmospheric emissions.

Minimising the carbon footprint, particularly through reduction of emissions and the carbon intensity of operations, represents a challenge, especially within the context of expanding our activities.

We monitor our carbon footprint on a regular and systematic basis, and we take its evolution into account when defining our strategy, objectives and goals.

Notes

t CO2e - tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent

The following assumptions must be taken into account:

1) The Global Warming Potential (GWP) for 100-year time horizon were considered. Source: IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4)

2) Includes total emissions of Flaring Gas (Routine and Non-Routine).

Methodological note:

Galp's carbon footprint is calculated on an annual basis using the methodological framework established by The GreenhouseGas Protocol – Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard, supplemented by the relevant industry adaptation promoted by the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA) – Compendium of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Methodologies for the Oil and Gas Industries.

We used the Global Warming Potentials that were calculated in the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4).
