The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol ICT Sector Guidance was set up to provide specific guidance on the GHG Protocol Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard (the Product Standard). The objective is to provide a consistent approach for assessing the life cycle GHG impacts of ICT products. The ICT Sector Guidance is jointly convened through the World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the Carbon Trust and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI).
The first training on the new Product and Corporate Value Chain Standards will be held in Germany on October 28th following the 6thPCF World Forum. This one day training will be held free of charge however, due to space restrictions the training requires advanced registration. Registration is available here:http://www.pcf-world-forum.org/.
Today the GHG Protocol launches two new global greenhouse gas accounting standards - for corporate value chains (scope 3) and product life cycle emissions. Janet Ranganathan, WRI’s Vice-president for Science & Research, and Pankaj Bhatia, WRI’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol Director since 2004, describe the 12-year program’s critical role in business and government efforts to address climate impacts.
