  • The GHG Protocol already has the corporate standard, widely used and trusted by global business.Big numbers – outcome of WRI so far – get across their achievementsSource of map: http://pdf.wri.org/measuring-to-manage.pdfSince the publication of the first edition of The Greenhouse Gas Protocol: A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (Corporate Standard) in 2001, more than 1,000 businesses and organizations worldwide have developed their GHG inventories using the GHG Protocol. Some of the world’s largest companies are using the GHG Protocol’s Corporate Standard. FIGURES:The 2007 Corporate Climate Communications Report of the Fortune 500 companies by CorporateRegister.com reported 63 percent of companies use the GHG Protocol. The Carbon Disclosure Project - a non-profit organization that represents investors with assets totaling$41 trillion worth - regularly surveys the world’s largest companies to assess investment-related risks and opportunities related to climate change using the GHG Protocol as the framework. In 2008, 72 percent of Fortune 500 companies responded to the survey.The 2010 GHG Workforce Survey from GHG Management Institute and Sequence Staffing found that the overwhelming majority of respondents said GHG Protocol is the second most important climate program after Kyoto Protocol in the successful measurement and management of climate change.
  • Recently released statistic: Over 85% of respondents to a 2010 Carbon Disclosure Project survey of 2487 companies either directly used GHG Protocol or used it through their participation in a climate change program that used GHG Protocol.
  • ContentThe GHG Protocol has two news standards, the Product Standard and the Scope 3 (Value Chain) Standard. They can be used together or separately and work with existing GHG Protocol Standards to provide a complete suite of tools for carbon accounting and reporting.The two standards can be used separately, together or part of the wider suite of standards from the GHG Protocol which look at scope 1 and 2 emissionsThe Product Standard uses Life Cycle Analysis to map the emissions of an individual product. It looks at all emissions generated from the raw sourcing, manufacture, storage, use and disposal of a product.The Scope 3 (value chain) standard shows a business a bigger picture of its emissions – highlighting impacts across the entire value chain. It allows businesses to identify ‘hot spots’ – the areas of their operations where most emissions are generated.
