GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard
GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard is a global standard for emission measurement, designed to help companies prepare a GHG inventory through the use of standardized approaches and principles. It includes scope 1,2 and 3.
As the GHG Protocol is the international central standard that all methodologies and tools should align to, it provides a key reference point at any time. Although not a tourism specific methodology, various cross-sector and sector-specific calculation resources are freely available to support users facilitating involvement participation in voluntary and mandatory GHG programs.
This resource has been reviewed as part of the Climate Action in the Tourism Sector: An overview of methodologies and tools to measure greenhouse gas emissions within the framework of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism.
