CO2 Scope 1 Discrepancies Cumulative Distribution

Reflecting on global corporate emissions, it’s notable that among the roughly 40,000 to 45,000 publicly listed companies (as estimated by the World Bank), only about 17% report their direct greenhouse gas emissions or Scope 1 emissions.

While this fraction appears small, these companies are responsible for a substantial 74% of the Scope 1 emissions of all listed companies.

Discrepancies and inconsistencies in the data raise questions about its accuracy, highlighting a critical gap in our understanding and ability to effectively address corporate contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.
