To develop a GHG Emissions Inventory means to map, strategically, the company’s carbon emissions profile. This diagnosis allows identifying activities with high emissions’ rates, enabling the implantation of reducing strategies. The GHG Emissions Inventory is the first step to achieve a low carbon scenery.
Besides legislation, that already requires companies with certain productive activities and amount of emissions realize their inventories, there is a strong trend of big corporations to mobilize their supply chain to have the obligation to present their inventories. An example of one of these companies is Vale do Rio Doce.
