The GHG Protocol recently launched the new Scope 3 and Product standards to enable corporations to measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions across their entire value chain and product lifecycle. For the first time, companies can measure their value chains and products using a consistent and credible international approach. The new standards reveal the biggest opportunities for organizations to make more sustainable decisions about their activities and the products they produce, buy, and sell.

Purpose of the Workshops

WRI will offer two (2) half-day workshops on the Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) and Product Life Cycle Standards to:

  • Introduce participants to the standards;

  • Provide the business case for adoption;

  • Review the accounting and reporting requirements; and

  • Offer practical guidance on implementation.

Who should attend?

The workshops are open to all participants of the Climate Leadership Conference. Companies, consultants, NGOs, and government representatives can all benefit from the training.

What is the cost?

There is no fee to attend either of the workshops.

When and Where?

The Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard and Product Life Cycle Standard workshops will be held at the Hyatt Regency Bonaventure Conference Center from 1pm – 5pm. A box lunch will be provided. Both are scheduled for March 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm (ending at 5:00 pm). Attendees will have to pick between the workshops as they will be taking place concurrently.
