Carbon footprint reports for 2017, 2018 and 2019

SDU’s carbon footprint reports for 2017, 2018 and 2019 show a total CO2 emission of respectively 11,095, 11,373 and 10,293 tonnes of CO2 equivalents.

The relatively high emissions in 2018 are due to an increase in the emission factors for electricity. Due to the combination of wind, solar and thermal-bonded combined heat and power plants, both weather conditions and market conditions (including import and export of electricity) are of great importance to the final composition of the electricity that is produced and used in Denmark.

The carbon footprint reports for 2017, 2018 and 2019 were drawn up in May 2021 by Professor Henrik Wenzel from Life Cycle Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering at SDU.
