Understand the implications when deciding how to conduct corporate GHG emissions reports.
The purpose of these Guidelines is to promote consistency in the voluntary accounting and reporting of petroleum industry GHG emissions. As the name implies, the purpose of the Guidelines is to provide guidance rather than to prescribe standards. Companies vary in how they account for and report GHG emissions. To some extent, this variability may result from the requirements of the mandatory and voluntary reporting programmes in which they participate. These Guidelines may be used by companies to understand the implications of the reporting approaches they use and to help them in deciding how to conduct their corporate GHG emissions reporting.
