Emissions by Facility & Category
This diagram visually represents the flow of emissions across different facilities, scopes, and categories within an organization. The diagram utilizes varying widths of arrows to depict the relative magnitude of emissions in a clear and intuitive manner.
In this diagram for emissions by facility, scope, and category, the diagram starts with the facilities of the organization as the main branches. Each facility is represented as a node or box, and the width of the arrows indicates the amount of emissions associated with that facility. The thicker the arrow, the higher the emission level.
The diagram also includes different scopes, such as Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3, as additional branches connected to each facility. These scopes represent different sources of emissions, including direct emissions from owned or controlled activities (Scope 1), indirect emissions from purchased energy (Scope 2), and other indirect emissions along the value chain (Scope 3).
Furthermore, the diagram incorporates various emission categories, such as energy consumption, transportation, manufacturing processes, and more. These categories are visualized as smaller branches stemming from the corresponding facility and scope, illustrating the specific sources or activities contributing to the emissions.
By analyzing the Sankey diagram, users can gain insights into the distribution of emissions across different facilities, scopes, and categories. They can identify facilities with higher emissions, understand the proportion of emissions from different scopes, and pinpoint the key categories driving emissions within each facility.
The Sankey diagram provides a comprehensive overview of emissions within an organization, facilitating data-driven decision-making and enabling targeted actions to reduce emissions. It allows stakeholders to visually grasp the complex interrelationships between facilities, scopes, and emission categories, fostering a better understanding of the organization's carbon footprint and supporting sustainability initiatives.
