Between November 2022 and March 2023, Greenhouse Gas Protocol collected stakeholder input via four online surveys on the Corporate Standard, Scope 2 Guidance, Scope 3 Standard, and market-based accounting approaches. In this webinar on October 3 from 10:00-11:00am ET, the GHG Protocol secretariat will review key themes that emerged in the market-based accounting approaches survey. Participants can submit questions for the speakers in advance as well as during the live session. This session will be recorded for those who are unable to join the live session. Register for the webinar.
GHG Protocol is seeking stakeholder input to understand the need, scope, and potential approaches to inform updates or additional guidance related to the Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories, also known as the Global Protocol for Cities or GPC. The survey can be accessed here, and respondents also have the option to submit a proposal for updates to the GPC or for additional guidance. All feedback must be submitted by November 15 via the survey form or proposal template to be considered.
On Wednesday, August 23, the GHG Protocol secretariat hosted a webinar reviewing the key themes presented by stakeholders in the recently concluded Corporate Standard and Scope 3 Standard surveys and related proposal submissions. A PDF of the presentation slide deck can be viewed here and the webinar recording can be accessed here.
