Global Warming Potential/GWP is the heat absorbed over a given time period due to emissions of a gas. It’s a way to measure or compare the overall heating effect of different gases relative to carbon dioxide.

Global Warming Potential or GWP is the heat absorbed by any greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. This value is used to compare the abilities of different greenhouse gases to trap heat in the atmosphere relative to carbon dioxide. Thru GWP, we will distinguish which greenhouse gas have higher possibility to affect the warming of the earth on a given period of time.

GWP is a total contribution of global warming which resulting from the emission of different gases that absorb over a given period of time.

Global Warming Potential is defined as the cumulative radiative forcing, both direct and indirect effects, over a specified time horizon resulting from the emission of a unit mass of gas related to some reference gas.

Global Warming Potential is a comparison of overall heating effect of gases relative to carbon dioxide over a period of time. GWP value allows to compare emissions and reductions of different gases that contributes to the greenhouse effect.
