GHG emissions inventory for companies
CCG helps you identify the motivations that lead you to conduct a GHG emissions inventory:
- Voluntary disclosure to stakeholders: investors, customers, suppliers, employees, future employees, local residents, partners?
- Managing the organization’s internal activities while taking into account their carbon costs?
- Research and development of products or services with a low carbon footprint?
- Search for financing to reduce GHG emissions?
- Responding to a client?
- Obtaining certification?
- Alignment with corporate social responsibility strategy and strategic positioning?
Depending on the defined objectives, CCG will assist you in completing your GHG emissions inventory by following the standards for recognized protocols such as ISO 14064-1, the GHG Protocol or The Climate Registry. Your organization’s annual inventory provides you with essential information on :
- “What are the significant emission items under my control?”
- “What are my current carbon costs?”
- “When including Scope 3 emissions, what is my value chain’s exposure to carbon constraints?”
GHG Emissions Inventory of a Municipal Organization
A municipality can conduct two types of inventories:
- A corporate inventory, which assesses the emissions under the organization’s control (its buildings, fleet of vehicles, etc.).
- The collective inventory, which assesses emissions from the organization’s territory, including citizen’s travel, industrial and commercial activities, etc.
CCG assists municipal organizations in the development of their corporate and collective inventory as part of FCM’s “Partners for Climate Protection program” or based on standards such as ISO 14064-1 or the “Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories”.
Estimating GHG emission reductions
CCG can estimate the GHG emission reductions generated by a clean technology. To do so, we refer to the ISO 14064-2 standard, which is specific to GHG emission reduction projects, to answer the question:
- “What emissions can my technology avoid?”
Disclosure of climate information
Stakeholders expect organizations to disclose information on their environmental performance and climate commitments. CCG supports you in this exercise, whether you are dealing with investors (CDP) or informing your customers, partners, suppliers or employees.
