A "Greenhouse Gas Inventory" sector guide enables representatives and stakeholders of a given sector of activity to join forces in order:

  • if necessary, to supplement/adapt the general methodology for carrying out a GHG inventory for the organizations in the sector concerned;
  • to provide sectoral elements for enhancing the Base Carbone® (source data, emission factors);
  • to propose examples of best practices in terms of reducing GHG emissions;
  • to guarantee take-up of the method by the sector and the use of common rules; to profit from a collective dynamic.
