How The Registry is Advancing Leadership in Carbon Management
The Registry is continually looking for new ways to help companies, non-profits, government agencies and institutions meet their carbon management goals and increase their competitiveness. The following are a few of things we’re doing to support and encourage corporate leadership in carbon reporting and reductions.
Climate Registered Program: Recognizing Leadership in Reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
We are currently piloting a new leadership program that recognizes organizations that are voluntarily reducing their GHG emissions in a credible way. Organizations that meet the program criteria will be eligible to be awarded Climate Registered Silver, Gold or Platinum status.
Draft program parameters are available for review here.
Simplifying the Reporting Process
We are launching a new tool that will enable organizations to upload data to The Registry’s reporting software, the Climate Registry Information System (CRIS), without having to manually enter each source and facility. To use GHG Sync, you will need to map your data to an XML schema and then submit it to CRIS using a web interface. If you are interested in beta testing GHG Sync please contact Craig Wong at email@example.com.
The Sustainability Consortium
As a leader in establishing third-party verification practices, The Climate Registry was asked to participate in The Sustainability Consortium’s Assurance Working Group. The Sustainability Consortium is an independent organization of diverse global participants who work collaboratively to build a scientific foundation that drives innovation to improve consumer product sustainability through all stages of a product’s life cycle. The Assurance Working Group’s objective is to ensure that product-level sustainability measurement and reporting standards developed through The Sustainability Consortium are objective, measurable, complete, relevant, verifiable, and comparable.
