Reaction to Greenhouse Gas Protocol

Brussels, December 2022 – ERGaR reacts to Greenhouse Gas Protocol in Joint Letter 


Along with 13 other organisations active in the gas sector, ERGaR has reacted to the proposed changes in the current Greenhouse Gas Protocol of the World Resources Institute.

More specifically, this refers to the new draft on “Land Sector and Removals Guidance”. Here, we have raised serious concerns over the prevention of corporate users from using market-based instruments to report reduced GHG emissions from biomethane consumption. According to the signatories of the letter, this would hinder the European Union’s efforts to develop the goal of producing 35 bcm of domestic biomethane by 2030.
