Greenhouse 100 Index

Founding Year: 2018



The list was “created by ranking the 100 largest parent companies for carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (excluding biogenic carbon dioxide) from the 2018 GHGRP database of large fixed facilities after parent companies were assigned.” It lists both “parent company carbon dioxide equivalent totals and percentages of the database.

The application also shows data from individual facilities owned by each parent company and from industrial sectors at each. For each parent company, the percentage of the company’s total emissions that are from a single facility is displayed in the Greenhouse 100 list. This helps to identify companies whose overall emissions are dominated by a single source.”
