California Climate Action Registry

Description: 

A private non-profit organization originally formed by the State of California. The California Registry serves as a voluntary greenhouse gas (GHG) registry to protect and promote early actions to reduce GHG emissions by organizations. The California Registry provides leadership on climate change by developing and promoting credible, accurate, and consistent GHG reporting standards and tools for organizations to measure, monitor, third-party verify and reduce their GHG emissions consistently across industry sectors and geographical borders.

The California Registry has developed a number of protocols to assist members and verifiers in the process of calculating, reporting and verifying an emissions inventory. All members will use the General Reporting & Verification Protocols to complete their emissions inventories. The California Registry also offers industry-specific protocols to give further guidance to certain sectors. Currently, industry-specific protocols are available for the cement sector, the power/utility sector and the forest sector.
