Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting

Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) - aka Mandatory Carbon Reporting - is the law in 40 countries across the World, including UK, many EU member states, North America, Australia, Japan and soon-to-be South Africa


GHG Reporting qualification varies across jurisdictions - e.g. in the 2017_ghg_map.jpg UK, only incorporated companies listed on the main market of theLondon Stock Exchange/European Economic State/NYSE or NASDAQ  are mandated to report

Within the EU GHG Reporting is included within Non Financial Reporting which also covers broader sustainability undertakings 

GHG Reporting Scope also can vary - commonly a minimum of  Scopes 1 and 2 emissions are stipulated, though Scope 3 emission are strongly recommended (particularly when data is readily accessible) and makes sense as it can be a major source of both carbon emissions and cost for businesses

GHG Reporting Methodology - commonly, the WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol is followed, though there can be local variations to this. 

Overseas operations - Some jurisdictions require organisations to report emissions on their overseas operations (not just the home country).

Independent Auditing of GHG Reports - some geographies require this, whereas others do not
