GHG Protocol for Cities

Global Protocol for Community-Scale GHG Emissions
Greenhouse Gas Protocol for Cities An Accounting and Reporting Standard for Cities

Responsible for more than 70 percent of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions, cities represent the single greatest opportunity for tackling climate change. The first step for cities to realize their potential is to identify and measure where their emissions come from -- you can’t cut what you don’t count.

Mitigation Goal Standard

The standard can help governments set emission-reduction targets, meet domestic and international emissions reporting obligations to groups like the UNFCCC, and ensure that efforts to reduce emissions are achieving their intended results.

Project Protocol

The GHG Protocol for Project Accounting is the most comprehensive, policy-neutral accounting tool for quantifying the greenhouse gas benefits of climate change mitigation projects.

The Project Protocol provides specific principles, concepts, and methods for quantifying and reporting GHG reductions—i.e., the decreases in GHG emissions, or increases in removals and/or storage—from climate change mitigation projects (GHG projects).

Policy and Action Standard

Analysts at both the national and local levels can evaluate the GHG impacts of specific policies to improve their effectiveness in reducing emissions and inform where to invest resources to achieve the best results. 

Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard

Corporate Standard

Corporate Standard

The standard covers the accounting and reporting of seven greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol – carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PCFs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). It was updated in 2015 with the Scope 2 Guidance, which allows companies to credibly measure and report emissions from pu

New e-learning courses on the Policy and Action Standard and Mitigation Goal Standard
The GHG Protocol offers two new online courses for policymakers and analysts at either the national or local level. The courses are intended to help users understand the Policy and Action Standard and Mitigation Goal Standard and apply the standard to their specific circumstances.
