- The world standard method for counting
the energy use of businesses, following the ISO governmental
standards, as applies in LCA and GHG measurements of
environmental impacts, count the fuels purchased for production
goods but not the fuels purchased for production services.
- This is the difference it makes, a
change of ~500% in the scale attributable business energy costs
and environmental impacts.
(from the SEA study of a
typical industrial business, a wind farm in Texas)
attribute the environmental impacts of business to how the parts
work together, rather than to its mechanical parts as previously
been done, and so, to the organization that makes a business
productive, rather than the tools the organization uses)
