Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction is a goal for every data center provider, and the criteria for Scopes 1-3 is aiding these efforts. But how effective are they?

In this presentation, Nancy Novak, Compass Datacenters' Chief Innovation Officer, and industry expert Bill Kleyman will examine the current state of Scope 1-3's usage and effectiveness. Among the issues Nancy and Bill will explore are the benefits and limitations of the current scope structure and why new Scope 4 criteria can provide a more complete analysis of the effectiveness of a company's efforts to reduce their GHG emissions throughout their operations.


  • The definitions of Scopes 1-3
  • Understanding of what the numbers mean for each Scope
  • The definition of Scope 4
  • How Scope 4 provides the complete picture of GHG reduction
