CH4 Methane None
CO2 Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is a natural, colorless and odorless greenhouse gas that is emitted when fossil fuels (i.e. natural gas, oil, coal etc.) are burnt. None
CO2e Carbon dioxide equivalent” or “CO2e” is a term for describing different greenhouse gases in a common unit. For any quantity and type of greenhouse gas, CO2e signifies the amount of CO2 which would have the equivalent global warming impact. CO2 has a GWP of 1, methane has a GWP of approximately 28 (on a 100 year time horizon). In other words, for every 1 tonne of methane (CH4) emitted, an equivalent of 25 tonnes of CO2 would be emitted.
