  2. Calculation protocol of greenhouse emissions refer mainly to WRI/WBCSD (2004), The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (Revised Edition)” for Scope1 and Scope2. Scope2 is calculated by using for 2010 electric power emission factor from International Energy Agency (2013), “CO2 Emissions From Fuel Combustion Highlights 2013”.
