Guidelines for the development of sector guides

In the framework of a collaborative initiative conducted with the members of the "GHG Emissions Inventory Workgroup" ("GT BEGES"), organized and coordinated by ADEME, the Agency has produced a reference framework comprising the guidelines for the development of sector guides in the implementation of greenhouse gas emission inventories.

In 2014, the guidelines were subjected to testing by 7 consortia (link to press release of 17/12/13) in order to incorporate their comments and thereby produce a reference framework that was both suited to the needs of those sponsoring guides and was operational.

The guidelines describe the minimum requirements that a sector guide needs to meet according to ADEME. This document also includes recommendations and advice in terms of the content of a sector guide with a view to enabling guide sponsors to develop quality documents.
