Corporate GHG Inventorying and Target Setting Self-Assessment
The Corporate GHG Inventorying and Target Setting Self-Assessment is a technical tool designed to help companies evaluate their approaches to GHG inventorying and target-setting.
This self-assessment is responsive to companies’ interests in benchmarking their GHG management approaches. Based on an analysis of over 500 publicly-reporting companies in 2017, this resource can be used by both leading companies and companies beginning to address their GHG emissions as an internal communication and management resource and a high-level benchmarking assessment. It aims to help them identify which inventorying and target-setting actions reflect common business practices today and validate additional inventorying and target-setting behaviors that position them for more cost-effective GHG emission reductions. Results from this self-assessment can also highlight how other companies develop their inventories and set GHG reduction targets.
