Management Summary

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are the largest anthropogenic climate killer. Global warming is increasing at a rate that requires companies in all industries to take immediate action to reduce their GHG emissions, primarily CO2. This requires quantifying GHG emissions and establishing a GHG footprint.

Our White Paper provides valuable information on GHG accounting according to the internationally recognized specification ISO 14064-1. The specification covers the principles, guidelines and requirements for the planning, development, management and reporting of GHG inventories. In the White Paper, we present the individual chapters of the standard, describe the steps leading up to a GHG inventory, and explain the most important terms in a glossary.
