Why Verify Greenhouse Gas Emissions?
Archived Webinar: Why Verify Greenhouse Gas Emissions?
In partnership with The Climate Registry
January 31st, 2013
Greenhouse gas reporting verification - the review of GHG emissions data by a third-party source - ensures information is accurate and complete, but does it add an undue burden to campus staff completing GHG reports? As of 2012, less than a quarter of current American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment signatory institutions have reported some form of verification for one or more GHG inventory. What are the potential benefits to verification, what does verification entail, and how does verification work for colleges and universities?
This webinar will discuss opportunities, benefits, and challenges for colleges and universities to verify their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and will include a case study from the University of California. The University of California reports GHG emissions to The Climate Registry.
