February 24, 2012

For people wanting to know more about the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s Scope 3 Standard, Frankie Ridolfi at Climate Earth informs us that his organization has recorded this concise webcast for a quick orientation.

You’ll learn the principles, key steps and requirements, and how it fits with the GHG Protocol’s previous Corporate Standard for Scope 1 and 2 emissions. You’ll also see a readiness checklist and a framework for streamlined data collection. The Scope 3 Standard is 150 pages long so this webcast is a great way to get started. If you agree, please share and “Like” it in your social threads.

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. A decade-long partnership between the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the GHG Protocol is working with businesses, governments, and environmental groups around the world to build a new generation of credible and effective programs for tackling climate change.

It serves as the foundation for nearly every GHG standard and program in the world – from the International Standards Organization to The Climate Registry – as well as hundreds of GHG inventories prepared by individual companies.

Get familiar with The GHG Protocol. You will find it offers developing countries an internationally accepted management tool to help their businesses to compete in the global marketplace and their governments to make informed decisions about climate change.
