The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative

by librarian2 — last modified Jan 10, 2013 08:45 AM

Many governments are taking steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through national policies that require companies to quantify and report their emissions. The purpose of this activity is to broaden the application of the Corporate Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Reporting Standard, a tool that assists corporations quantify and account for their emissions. This is particularly important in managing changes in mobile greenhouse gas and conventional air pollutant emissions resulting from multi-modal shifts in public transport. Tool development can, and has, led to the creation of alliances between corporations, governments, and NGOs. Mexico and India have used this activity. EGAT/I&E/E buys into this agreement and has been supporting work on electricity governance.
