Sector Guidance

The GHG Protocol is often approached by industry organizations and companies asking if we can partner with them to develop new GHG accounting guidance or tools, or whether we can endorse tools they have already developed. GHG Protocol has just released a draft policy for dealing with such requests. It outlines the development and review processes needed before tools can be co-branded with GHG Protocol and/or listed on our website.

Development of GHG Protocol Online Development Course

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is looking for financial support to develop an online training course for both practitioners and trainers on the Corporate Standard. This will be a part of the Training and Capacity Building Initiative’s global, multi-year effort to scale-up the capacity of companies, governments and other organizations in developing countries to measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions. The Protocol seeks to develop an effective on-line course based on the Corporate Standard training materials that are already available but with additional web-based learning features.
