Guideline and Action Points

Objective

The objective with Step 1 is to establish the organisation boundary to determine which of its operations are to be included in its GHG inventory.

Action Points

  1. Review and analysis of the company including all its subsidiaries and other entities or joint ventures in which it has direct ownership or control.
  2. Develop an organisational chart.
  3. Mapping out the (i) equity share, (ii) operational control and (iii) financial control for the company and all its subsidiaries and other entities or joint ventures in which it has direct ownership or control.
  4. Decide whether emissions will be uniformly determined across all company entities based on either the (i) (i) equity share, (ii) operational control and (iii) financial control approach.
  5. Transfer the data collected to Chapter C of the company’s GHG Inventory Management Plan (IMP).
