Scope 2 Guidance cover.PNGThe next Scope 2 Guidance Training Webinar will be held on Thursday, January 12 from 10am-2pm EST. Please check back for registration information.

The Scope 2 Guidance standardizes how corporations measure and report emissions from purchased or acquired electricity, steam, heat, and cooling, including new requirements on accounting for emissions from energy contracts and instruments (such as renewable energy certificates) in greenhouse gas inventories. This publication is an update to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard, the most widely-used standard for corporate greenhouse gas accounting.

The training will be led by Mary Sotos, Associate at World Resources Institute and lead author of the guidance. The training will cover the new reporting requirements and provide practical examples on how to calculate emissions based on different contractual instruments in different countries.

Registration is $200 per student and covers four hours of instruction and a certificate of completion. Discounts are available for university students and employees of NGOs or government agencies. Contact Paul Ryberg at pryberg@wri.org if you qualify for a discount.
