The GHG Protocol publishes the world’s most widely used greenhouse gas accounting standards. Often, these standards are the basis for accounting resources designed by organizations or consultancies, such as sector-specific guidance, calculation tools, and reporting programs. The “Built on GHG Protocol” mark is a way for the GHG Protocol to recognize products that have been developed in conformance with a GHG Protocol standard. Those that acquire the mark will benefit from the GHG Protocol’s reputation as the gold standard of GHG accounting.
If your organization is publishing a resource that is based on a GHG Protocol standard, the mark and a thorough review by GHG Protocol experts at WRI can provide several benefits:
The cost of attaining the mark varies depending on the scope and number of reviews. Typically a review is conducted after a first draft of the guidance, tool or program is developed. Another review is conducted after the final draft is completed, and a quick final review is performed to insure all recommended revisions are completed.
The timeframe for the review process depends on the size and complexity of the document and stakeholder review, and the length needed to address the requested revisions. Please consult the policy document for more information on this service.
