Direct (greenhouse gas) emissions are produced from sources owned, produced, and controlled by a company. They are referred to as "Scope 1 emissions" in the context of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

The difference between direct and indirect emissions is that indirect (greenhouse gas) emissions are a consequence of the activities of the reporting organisation but are controlled or produced by another company, for instance, a cloud storage provider or a taxi ride.
