Guide to Measuring and Reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions


The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the result of a partnership between the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), is a global organization that sets standards to measure and manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This resource focuses on understanding and developing an effective management plan for specifically Scope 2 GHG emissions, or emissions that are from purchased or acquired electricity, steam, heat and cooling. This lengthy resource is targeted towards the experienced user and we recommend skipping to chapters 4-6 and 9 for actionable insight on how to manage Scope 2 GHG emissions.
