Petroleum Industry Guidelines for Reporting Greenhouse Gas Emissions
As the reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions becomes more widespread, the need for guidance on how emissions should be accounted for and reported has become apparent. Current approaches vary among the few existing mandatory, governmental GHG reporting programs. Companies also differ in how they voluntarily report the emissions data. This variability in approaches has relusted in a lack of comparability of reported GHG emission from company to company with specific industrial sectors, as well as a lack of comparability of results from reporting program to reporting program.
