EPA’s GHG Management Self-Assessment/Benchmarking Resource

This EPA webinar highlighted its recently released Corporate GHG Inventorying and Target Setting Self-Assessment—a technical resource to help companies evaluate their approaches to GHG inventorying and target-setting. Learn how this tool can be used by both leading companies and companies beginning to address their GHG emissions as an internal communication and management resource and a high-level benchmarking assessment. It can help your organization identify which inventorying and target-setting actions reflect common business practices today and validate additional inventorying and target-setting behaviors that position you for more cost-effective GHG emission reductions. Results from this self-assessment can also highlight how companies develop their inventories and set GHG reduction targets. Guest speakers offered perspectives on the tool’s development and how organizations can best leverage the information for optimal results.
