This study is centered upon a textile facility situated in Faisalabad, Pakistan. The most attractive lot of products includes curtains, panel prints, terry towels, bed in bags, embroidery, table and sofa covers etc.
The study emphasizes the different emission sources including scope 1 emission which take into account direct emissions resulting from industry owned activities. The scope 2 are indirect emissions that emit due to the purchase of electricity, natural gas and the biogas emissions resulting from waste disposal. Scope 3 emissions were not accounted in the current study based upon its complexity.
Scope 1 emissions were found to contribute greatest in total carbon footprint. The results symbolized an ascending trend in the carbon footprint of the industry over past five years. This ascending trend also denoted that very less environmental sustainability has been achieved by the industry in last five years.
