The I-REC Standard’s official responses to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol surveys
The I-REC Standard focused its responses to the GHGP review on (i) the Scope 2 Survey, and (ii) an addendum document that recommends updates to strengthen market-based and location-based accounting and alignment with government programs. In addition to submitting its own responses, the I-REC Standard supported multiple governments, utilities, and other national actors to analyze the GHGP surveys and their relevance to domestic clean energy markets.
Providing responses and remaining engaged in the GHGP review process is critical as the resulting documents establish the methods and rules for measuring, tracking, and reporting carbon emissions linked to purchased electricity. The Scope 2 Guidance lays the foundations for all major corporate reporting frameworks including RE100, the Science Based Targets Initiative, and Race to Zero.
The I-REC Standard firmly stands by its input into the review process and is open to discussing any of its responses in detail. Please contact the I-REC Standard secretariat for any GHGP survey-related questions or comments.
