AAHK follows the operational control approach in defining its organisational boundary which covers buildings and facilities that AAHK has control over. The inventory covered seven types of GHG, namely carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and chlorodifluoromethane (HCFC-22).

[2] Scope 3 emissions are the GHG generated from paper disposal at landfill and electricity consumption for processing fresh water and sewage.
