Guidance for Calculating a Carbon Footprint and Setting a Target
This guidance has been issued to support signatories to the Pledge to Net Zero publicly report on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Public GHG reporting is a requirement of commitment 2 (publicly report greenhouse gas emissions and progress against targets each year) and is integral to commitment 1 (set and commit to deliver a greenhouse gas target in line with either a 1.5°C or well below 2°C climate change scenario – covering buildings and travel as a minimum).
