The Greenhouse Gas Auditing of Supply Chains guide is designed to assist users in evaluating their environmental compliance with GHG reporting standards. The baseline global standards are issued by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol project under the auspices of World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Other entities use these standards to develop their own for further understanding of, and regulatory compliance with, the GHG Protocol provisions. This facilitates the users' ability to respond to a wide variety of requests for this information. These include supply chain reporting mechanisms internally or as promulgated by specific multinational corporations such as Wal-Mart, IBM and Proctor and Gamble. In addition, entities are increasingly subject to evaluation by investors, financial READ MORE >
