The WBCSD/WRI recently proposed an update to their Corporate Greenhouse Gas Protocol to provide specific regulations regarding the global warming potential (GWP) values used by companies seeking compliance with the standard. Unlike the more recent Product and Scope 3 standards, the Corporate standard does not currently include specifications or guidance related to the selection and use of GWPs in organizational GHG assessments. The proposed amendment would align the Corporate standard with the Product and Scope 3 standards in requiring the use of 100-year GWP values published by the IPCC.
