Guidance Built on GHG Protocol

GHG_Logo_BuiltOn_CMYK.png

The following guidance documents were developed in close collaboration with the GHG Protocol, and have been reviewed to ensure that they are in conformance with the GHG Protocol standards.

The GHG Protocol creates standards and tools that are applicable to any organization, company, and sector. Additional guidance that build upon the more general standards are developed by the GHG Protocol in response to user needs. However, other groups and organizations are also developing their own guidance to support GHG Protocol Standards.
