In order to evaluate greenhouse gas emissions, there are three classifications:
Direct emissions: greenhouse gases emitted directly from fossil fuels used in machines or vehicles.
Indirect emissions: greenhouse gases emitted by plants that produce energy.
Other indirect emissions: Services that use energy from these plants.
