Offsets and Green Power

Companies often choose to expand their greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory boundaries to include optional emissions sources over which they have some control. Companies may also want to calculate emissions reductions from offset investments and renewable energy purchases for goal-tracking purposes. The following modules provide GHG accounting guidance pertaining to optional emissions tracking.

Offset Investments: This module is used to address eligibility of projects as GHG offsets and to provide measurement and monitoring guidelines for offset projects.

Green Power Purchases (PDF) (20 pp, 281K): This module is used to identify and estimate reductions from purchases of green power or Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).
