The Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) programme organized on 5-6 December international training on GHG accounting at the Centre for Textile in Bandung.
GHG accounting describes the way to inventory GHG emissions resulting in an assessment of the total GHG emitted directly and indirectly by the company’s activities. Mr Muralikrishnan, international expert in GHG accounting, highlighted that GHG accounting is a market like instrument to drive GHG mitigation efforts in industrial operations and value chains. Mr Van Berkel, Chief Technical Advisor, highlighted that credibility of GHG accounting, also known as carbon footprint, is critically dependent on transparency and consistency. Company and value chain GHG accounting would therefore need to follow international protocol, as reflected in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and associated ISO 14064 and 14065 standards.
The training was organized within the framework of the Indonesian RECP Programme, supported by the Government of Switzerland, implemented by UNIDO in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and Ministry of Industry. The training was developed and delivered in cooperation with the Godrej Green Business Centre, a centre of excellence under the Confederation of Indian Industries, and founding member of the global RECP Network.
