Dear Friends and Colleagues of the GHG Protocol,
The year 2011 is off to a great start. In this issue of the newsletter we are inviting you to participate in an online questionnaire to assist us in establishing the need and content of new guidance on GHG Policy Accounting.
The beginning of 2011 has also seen the announcement of a new initiative to help Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies measure their carbon footprint. These companies and their customers will soon have common approaches and methodologies to calculate the carbon footprints of ICT products and services thanks to industry guidance due to be published at the end of the year.
In February, WRI, along with The Energy and Resources Institute – Business Council for Sustainable Development (TERI-BCSD) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), organized a stakeholder dialogue on Corporate GHG Accounting in India. The event was held on the sidelines of the World CEO Forum 2011 and was the first formal consultation of a project between TERI and WRI.
Finally, the past few months saw the GHG Protocol team hold two discussion-based workshops on Green Power Accounting, tailored to US and European audiences specifically. The first workshop was held in Washington, DC in December and the second was held in London in January. The workshops centered around accounting practices relating to renewable energy credits (RECs), best practices for assuring clear emission attribute ownership, and how an emissions cap on the power sector impacts voluntary green power purchases.
As usual we welcome your feedback.
