This brochure provides the key figures for the Universal Postal Union (UPU) third carbon inventory, which was carried out in 2010 thanks to the cooperation of the designated operators of 133 Union member countries. The UPU International Bureau performed the inventory calculations using a specific tool created by the organization, based on a methodology recognized internationally by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the Global Reporting Initiative. This inventory takes account of emissions from vehicle fleets, postal buildings (electricity, fuel, refrigerant gases), air, sea and rail cargo, business travel and subcontractors’ activities (transport and buildings).
