Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are one of the major causes of rising global warming, and the Companies from the FMCG, retail, packaging, and food service sectors account for a significant amount of the global emissions. CO2, Methane & NOx gases form a major part of greenhouse gases released from Fossil Fuels such as gas and oil. Due to rising GHG emissions from companies, it became important among major contributing sectors to report gas emissions during their operations. 

Companies from the consumer sector are under increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint. Consumers are becoming more aware of excess carbon dioxide emissions' detrimental environmental effects. Their consumption behavior changes due to this, and they take an active interest in sustainability issues.
