What is GHG Protocol?
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is an organisation that provides the world’s most widely used global standards for GHG accounting and reporting, for both public and private sectors. It outlines how businesses can define organisational boundaries for GHG reporting and introduced the division of emissions into Scope 1, 2 and 3 to provide a clear overview of where a company’s emissions are occurring in its operations and its wider value chain. GHG Protocol serves to provide guidelines on what to report on, how the reporting should be done, and how data and emission factors can be collected and used.
Who uses the Corporate Standard?
The GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard provides requirements and guidance for companies and other organisations preparing a GHG emissions inventory. It is the basis for essentially all businesses’ GHG reporting, while other standards define guidelines for cities, product life cycle emission calculations, and corporate value chain emission calculations.
Accurate GHG accounting helps identify the source of significant emissions, which allows for informed climate strategies, actions and priorities. It therefore functions as a tool for identifying appropriate measures and monitoring targets linked to emission reduction plans. Businesses can push for change within their industry by placing demands on suppliers or industry peers to align with common reduction targets. Good ESG credentials and transparent data also attract new investments as sustainable business continues to drive value creation.
