The inventories of emissions published in the Public Emissions Registry were elaborated according to Brazil GHG Protocol Program Specifications, a methodology developed through a joint process involving the Program coordination team plus the 27 founding companies. The Brazilian Program Specifications consist of adapting the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard to the national reality. The original methodology was developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) in partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBSCD), and it is the most popular methodology used worldwide to elaborate corporate GHG emission inventories.
Brazil GHG Protocol Program Specifications are fully compliant with the international GHG Protocol, with ISO 14064 series standards, and with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) quantifying methodologies. Information generated in inventories reported to the Brazilian Program can be applied to the reports and surveys of initiatives such as Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), Bovespa Corporate Sustainability Index (ISE) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
