intensity of emissions

Definition

The ratio of GHGs produced to a financial measure, e.g. turnover or profit, or to a measure of activity, e.g. per metric tonne or unit of output. This differs from “total emissions” which refers to the actual amount of GHGs produced by an organization. (CDP, 2014)
