Greenhouse Gas Communications

Greenhouse gas communications is a sub-theme of greenhouse gas management

Standards for greenhouse gas (GHG) communications provide the framework and boundaries for claims and reporting on GHG management activities and results, and more generally, on action for climate change.


Such standards establish a common framework and boundaries for GHG claims and declarations in order to ensure high levels of credibility and reliability of GHG statements, to increase comparability of products, as well as the levels of customer/ consumer confidence.
