Scope 1 & 2 GHG Emissions Inventory

Customized Professional Services Offerings

Accounting for your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is a foundational step in understanding your company’s environmental impact and is necessary to inform your climate strategy.

G&A has a world class team of climate professionals with extensive experience in conducting corporate GHG emissions inventories across a wide variety of industries. G&A’s greenhouse gas emissions methodology and calculations are aligned with the GHG Protocol’s Corporate and Accounting and Reporting Standard, a widely accepted global standardized framework to measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions from private and public sector organizations. By using this standard, G&A ensures that your GHG emission inventory is complete, accurate, and ready for assurance by an independent third party.

We will support you along every step of the inventory process, from defining your inventory boundary, gathering activity data, selecting emissions factors, calculating emissions, undergoing assurance by a third-party, reporting results, and charting a path towards emissions reductions. 

Our in-house ESG and sustainability reporting team can help you efficiently and effectively report the results of your greenhouse gas emission inventory under a variety of frameworks, including CDP, GRI, TCFD, and prepare any applicable disclosures, such as California climate laws (SB 253 and AB 1305) and the proposed SEC rule on climate-related disclosures. 

What are Scope 1 and Scope 2 Emissions?

Scope 1 Emissions – Direct GHG emissions that come from sources that are directly owned or controlled by your company. This can include emissions from:

  • Transport from the combustion of fuel in company owned vehicles (e.g., forklifts, cars, vans, trucks, planes, etc.).
  • Refrigerant loss from HVAC systems, coolers and freezers.
  • The combustion of fuels in onsite boilers, furnaces, incinerators, and generators.

Scope 2 Emissions – Indirect GHG emissions generated from purchased energy – including electricity, steam, heating, and cooling.

  • GHG Emissions Inventory - An emissions inventory spreadsheet, including all activity data, calculations, emission factors, and results for the reporting period. 
  • GHG Inventory Management Plan - A document detailing the company’s GHG inventory process, including the inventory scope and boundaries, data collection methodology, and quality assurance and control procedures. 
  • GHG Inventory Results Report - A high-level emissions inventory report that identifies key findings, including emissions by scope, emission activity, GHG, facility, emission intensity metrics, the largest emission sources, and highlights reduction opportunities.
  • GHG Inventory Results Snapshot - A one-page report highlighting GHG inventory results to distribute to key stakeholders, including total emissions by scope, activity, emission intensity metrics, and activity data.
