Potential Emissions from Fossil Fuels
A large amount of carbon is stored in the fossil fuel reserves held by publicly listed companies. Should these reserves be produced, this carbon will be emitted to the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4), and will play a central role in determining the severity of climate change. These potential emissions have therefore been the subject of increased attention and some controversy over the last few years. However, there is currently no consensus around how fossil fuel companies should calculate and disclose the potential emissions from their reserves. In response, the GHG Protocol is developing a recommended methodology that will cover the main accounting and reporting steps.
