Calculation of Emissions according to International Standards
Credit Suisse calculates emissions according to the VfU standard 2018, in line with the requirements of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, an international standard for CO2 reporting. The emissions reported comprise direct emissions (scope 1), indirect emissions from the generation of electricity, heat, and steam (scope 2), as well as other indirect emissions caused by business travel, paper consumption, and the disposal of waste (scope 3). An RFI (Radiative Forcing Index) of 1 was used for business air travel.
