Dear Friends and Colleagues of the GHG Protocol,
The GHG Protocol Quarterly Newsletter has taken on a new look! We hope that this new format of presenting our updates will be more visually pleasing and exciting for our readers. We welcome any feedback and suggestions that you may have.
The WRI and WBCSD GHG Protocol Team
The International Aluminum Institute (IAI), in association with WBCSD and WRI, announced on Oct. 23 an updated set of tools for calculating GHG emissions from primary aluminum production.
On Nov. 7, Florence Daviet and Suzie Greenhalgh of WRI will travel to Nairobi, Kenya to present the “Land use, Land-use change and Forestry Guidance for GHG Project Accounting” (LULUCF) at the Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP-12).
The Mexico GHG Program officially transitioned from a pilot project to a permanent program on October 2, marking a significant milestone for the program partners and 30 participating businesses. The transition was ushered in through a signing of a permanent-status Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which replaced the pilot-phase MOU that was set to expire in November.
WRI is pleased to welcome Angel Hsu to the position of Research Assistant on the GHG Protocol. Angel recently completed a Master’s degree in Environmental Policy at the University of Cambridge, where she concentrated on international environmental law , economics, and policy in relation to the global climate regime.
Prior to her British adventure, Angel found herself knee-deep in the swamps of Costa Rican and Ecuadorian rainforests, snorkeling in the Jamaican coral reefs, and researching in China as a Biology and Political Science double major at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. When she’s not working or traveling, Angel enjoys rowing, eating exotic foods, cooking, and writing.
