Fossil fuel transportation and climate change The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. The GHG Protocol Initiative, a decade-long partnership between the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, is working with businesses, governments, and environmental groups around the world to build a new generation of credible and effective programs for tackling climate change.

The GHG Protocol provides the accounting framework for nearly every GHG standard and program in the world - from the International Standards Organization to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme to the California Climate Registry - as well as hundreds of GHG inventories prepared by individual companies.

You can also use the "Tool Customization Manual" to design a customized Greenhouse Gas Calculation Tool

GHG Calculation Tools

The GHG emission calculation tools offer step-by-step guidance on calculating GHG emissions data. Each tool comprises a guidance section and automated worksheets. All calculation tools have been peer-reviewed and tested by experts and industry leaders and represent a "best practice" for emission calculation tools.
