Changes to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol: How the New Scope 2 Requirements Will Affect You


New reporting requirements for Scope 2 GHG emissions will require companies to examine and update their current procedures and methods for calculating Scope 2 emissions.

Among the many changes is that companies will be required to provide dual reporting by two distinct methods: location-based reporting and market-based reporting.

The GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance was published in January 2015, and this year companies that report their GHG emissions in accordance with WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol will be required to follow the new 110-page guidance document.

This is an important program for anyone who enters, tracks, reports and reviews GHG emissions data.
