This report presents WRI’s carbon dioxide (CO2) inventory for calendar year 2008. It summarizes emission sources included in the inventory, calculation methodologies, and trends, and highlights WRI’s role in the completion of a green roof space at our Washington, DC office building.
WRI’s total emissions for 2008 were 1,263 metric tons of CO2. This represents a 29% increase above our (recalculated) 2003 base year emissions. WRI has committed to offset its emissions to achieve its goal of a “net zero” emissions balance every year. For 2008, WRI purchased credits compliant under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol, known as certified emission reductions (CERs). These credits were sourced from three different projects in China and India. Details of WRI’s offset purchases for 2008 can be found on page 7 of the report.
