The widely used Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) provides guidance for how organizations should account for their greenhouse gas emissions, based on the level of influence and control an organization has. The GHG Protocol introduces three ‘scopes’ to calculate organizations greenhouse gas emissions for three levels of control. Inspired by, and in line with the commonly used scopes of the GHG Protocol, we incorporated the scopes in the step-by-step approach to become circular and climate neutral at the same time. Festival organizations logically start with reducing the impact of the materials, equipment, and vehicles that they own, rent and use to organize, build-up, execute and break-down the festival. Gradually the focus extents to reducing the impact of goods and services from external suppliers, the impact of visitors and ultimately the impact of activities attracted by the festival in its surroundings. Therefore, festivals will need the support and help from suppliers, service providers and local governments to gradually maximize impact.
The figure below, includes an overview of what of a festivals’ production is to be included in the scopes for GHG calculations. The scopes are defined in accordance with the Global Green House Gas Protocol. It is acknowledged that alongside carbon scopes, 'spheres of influence' or 'degrees of control' play an important role in an organisation determining how to treat responsibility for emissions.’
