WRI, in partnership with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and TERI-Business Council on Sustainable Development (TERI-BCSD), is working in India to build the foundation for a voluntary GHG emissions measurement and accounting program for companies and organizations. We are currently in the process of consulting the stakeholders to understand their expectations from such a program and identify the various services that it should provide. Our shared vision is to build a center of excellence on GHG measurement and accounting within the country, which offers a range of services that serve multiple business objectives and develops customized accounting tools and protocols to accurately quantify corporate-level GHG emissions. Over the last decade, TERI and WRI have worked together to develop and/or road-test sector-specific GHG measurement and accounting tools. These included tools for sectors such as cement, aluminum, fertilizers, and power. TERI also participated in the development of the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard.
WRI’s other key partner in the country is the Confederation of Indian Industry- Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Center (CII-GBC) and in the past, we have jointly worked to build industry’s capacity on GHG accounting and quantification.
