GHG Protocol Releases Draft Summary of Scope 2 Guidance Survey Feedback 

Between November 2022 and March 2023, GHG Protocol invited interested stakeholders to provide feedback via four surveys on the Corporate Standard, the Scope 2 Guidance, the Scope 3 Standard, and market-based accounting approaches. The draft summary report provides a detailed overview of stakeholder feedback from the Scope 2 Guidance survey.

To ensure that GHG Protocol is accurately representing stakeholder feedback from the Scope 2 Guidance Survey responses, GHG Protocol is holding a review period to invite comments from individuals/organizations who completed the Scope 2 Guidance Survey. If you, or your organization, completed the Scope 2 Guidance survey, we encourage you to review the draft summary to ensure your feedback is represented accurately in the draft summary. To do so, please complete this form by Friday, September 8th.
