ADVISORY: Global launch of new standards to measure corporate greenhouse gas emissions


Source: World Resources Institute WRI

Two new international standards will be launched at events in New York and London to enable corporations to measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions across their entire value chain and product lifecycle. The standards will be released on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, at Citigroup in New York City and RSA House in London.

The new Corporate Value Chain Standard reveals the biggest opportunities for organizations to make more sustainable decisions about their activities and the products they produce, buy, and sell. The new Product Lifecycle Standard will enable companies to measure the GHG emissions of an individual product using a credible international approach.

The standards are being released by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a global collaboration led by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

The events will feature business leaders and sustainability experts from leading companies and associations. The NY press event will be followed immediately by two panel discussions with business leaders, moderated by Eric Roston, Sustainability Editor, Bloomberg News, and Ed Crooks, US Industry and Energy Editor, Financial Times.
