About GHG Protocol

The GHG Protocol is the de-facto standard-setting organisation for greenhouse-gas accounting. As well as producing guidance on estimating and categorising emissions, it also provides a set of the most commonly-used emission factors including energy consumption, transportation, waste management, and industrial processes.

This dataset has been deprecated because multiple emission factors failed to meet our data validation standards. To maintain consistency with the original source, we are still including them for the sake of completeness. We are awaiting a revised version of the dataset from the provider and we will update our dataset to align with these modifications once received.
