WSP to serve on a launch event panel for Scope 2 guidance on greenhouse gas emissions

World Resources Institute’s (WRI) Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, which sets the global standard for measuring, managing, and reporting greenhouse gas emissions, is unveiling new requirements and quality criteria for the Corporate Standard that resolve ambiguity around how corporations report Scope 2 emissions – those from purchased electricity, steam, heat, and cooling.

 

These new requirements, the most significant updates to the GHGP Corporate Standard in over a decade, strengthen the rigor and consistency of emissions reporting and recognize the diversity of market instruments and supplier arrangements. WSP's Dan Sobrinski and Eric Christen have been an integral part of the technical working group that has brought about the new GHG inventory guidelines.

To launch the Scope 2 Guidance, WRI is hosting three events this month in London, Brussels, and Washington D.C. Each will outline the changes, feature dynamic discussions about how this new common framework will transform corporate energy purchasing, and showcase many companies that are already putting the recommendations into practice.

On January 30th, WSP's Sustainability and Energy practice leader, Dan Sobrinski will be serving on a panel at the Washington D.C. launch event discussing linking accounting, disclosure, and procurement: what is best practice. He will be joined by panelists from Walmart, Center for Resource Solutions, and Mars. The panel is being moderated by Matt Clouse, US EPA Director of Renewable Energy Policy and Programs. The Washington D.C. launch event, GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance: Electricity Procurement, which WSP is a sponsor, runs from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM EST on Jan. 30th and is available via webcast.
