On 20 January 2015, the World Resources Institute through their Greenhouse Gas Protocol will unveil new requirements and quality criteria for the Corporate Standard that resolve ambiguity around how corporations report Scope 2 emissions – those from purchased electricity, steam, heat, and cooling.
These new requirements – the most significant updates to the GHGP Corporate Standard in over a decade – strengthen the rigor and consistency of emissions reporting and recognize the diversity of market instruments and supplier arrangements.
Three individual launch events for the Scope 2 Guidance will take place later this month in London, Brussels and Washington, DC. Each will outline the changes, feature dynamic discussions about how this new common framework will transform corporate energy purchasing and showcase many companies that are already putting the recommendations into practice.
