Publications Launch Event: Greenhouse Gases Emission Data Quality Management
China has demonstrated its commitment to address climate change through adopting ambitious actions to limit emissions, improve energy efficiency, and deploy low carbon energy technologies. To support the design, implementation and evaluation of low carbon development policies, including but not limited to Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emission trading scheme, China needs to develop an accounting system for GHG measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) for companies. Since data quality is one of the key determinants for the quality of policy makers’ decisions, the quality of GHG data from companies has a direct impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of climate policies in China.
The World Resources Institute (WRI) together with China National Institute of Standardization (CNIS) carried out China’s first research on GHG data quality management. By summarizing experiences and good practices from China and abroad, the program accomplished two major achievements—a research report and an STEC guidance, aiming to explore suitable solutions to comprehensively improve corporate level GHG emission data, and provide companies and policymakers in China with technical guidelines for data quality management.
Over 60 participants from government, research institutions, auditing bodies and technical consultancies will join the meeting to discuss the challenges and solutions confronted by China’s GHG data quality management. The even will release the research report “Cornerstone for GHG Accounting: Experience and Recommendations for Corporate Level Data Quality Management in China”, as well as the STCE Guidance “Technical Specification of the Data Quality Management of Greenhouse Gas Emission for Industrial Enterprises”.
