Finally…Something for Everyone
The Climate Registry’s Voluntary Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Program is now called the Carbon Footprint Registry. The registry includes the same training and resources, proprietary software (CRIS) and help desk it always has. On top of that, our program offers new reporting options and an enhanced recognition program, Climate Registered.
Our new and improved program kicks off in May 2019 and includes:
More Flexible Reporting Options
- More Flexible Boundaries for your greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory
- Fiscal-year reporting
- Equity Share only reporting
- World-wide reporting and verification
- Simplified Estimation Method (SEM) Threshold Increased to 10%
- More Base Year Options
- More Support for Disclosing GHG Reductions, Offsets and Carbon Neutrality
- Transitional Reporting Replaced by Customized Inventory Options
More Robust Recognition
- We have revamped the Climate Registered program, offering five tiers of recognition and a comprehensive set of benefits associated with each tier. Climate Registered communicates to your constituents that you are taking action on climate change.
A Stronger Community
- Managing and reducing GHGs is not uncharted territory: sharing information within the TCR community can not only save you time and money, it can have a big impact. We will use all the tools at our disposal — including webinars and case studies — to share lessons learned and best practices with our members so that you can integrate these into the way you do things.
For more information on these options, please see the FAQs.
