To Realize GHG Zero Emission through GHG Protocol

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – Green-house gas (GHG) emission is always taken as the factor that damages environment.

GHG, if produced by man’s activity or production, it would deliver exhaust gas emission. Many are in pro and contra about GHG but some companies start calculating their business activity to calculate numbers of their GHG.

How to do it? One can be using GHG Protocol and here are the explanations.

GHG Protocol is the standard account and report of GHG that World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) developed. GHG Protocol is designed to help organizations to measure, manage, and report their GHG emission.

Many organizations apply the standard, both private companies and government’s institutions consistently. GHG Protocol provides details about guidelines to calculate GHG emission from many sources, both directly and indirectly.

GHG Protocol consists of two major standards, they are, GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and GHG Protocol Project Standard.

GHG Protocol Corporate Standard is about to deliver guidelines to companies to calculate their GHG from their operational. This covers direct emission from internal sectors, such as, fuel combustion and indirect emission from external, such as, powerplant purchase.

GHG Protocol Project Standard is applied to measure and report GHG emission that has something to do with special projects, such as, emission reduction project or sustainable development project. This standard focuses on projects that could deliver advantages for the environment and minimize GHG emission.

GHG Protocol has become the reference for many industries and organizations in the world to escalate transparency, accountability, and understanding about environment impacts from human’s activity, help to identify the chance to reduce emission and escalate efficiency. .
