Managing GHG emissions and amplifying decarbonization efforts are essential for corporations to comply with regulations, meet stakeholder expectations, and address the global challenge of climate change.
In recent years, there has been a shift from voluntary to mandatory emissions measurement and management, with many countries implementing regulations that require corporations to reduce their GHG emissions in line with international goals. This shift reflects the growing recognition of the urgent need to address climate change. Although many companies have mature greenhouse gas accounting and energy management programs in place, there is still room for improvement in the adoption of best practices and deployment of emissions measurement, reduction, and reporting tools.
Effective management of GHG emissions and decarbonization can help corporations build resilience and adapt to the physical risks associated with climate change, while also mitigating reputational risks and complying with regulations. Managing GHG emissions can also optimize supply chain logistics, reduce waste, and improve operational efficiency. With climate change effects increasingly impacting supply chain operations, corporations need to take proactive steps to manage their emissions, and the RBA can play a critical role in supporting member companies to achieve their emissions reduction goals and create a more sustainable future.
RBA Emissions Management Tool
The RBA's Emissions Management Tool (EMT) is an online greenhouse gas quantification and reporting platform that can be used to support emissions calculations and increase ESG transparency, maturity, and data availability. The EMT supports RBA members’ GHG emission calculations, advances member and supplier sustainability efforts, and provides supply chain emission metrics for reporting purposes. Learn more.
Trainings and Learning Resources
The RBA provides several environmental trainings though the e-Learning Academy that focus on meeting RBA Code of Conduct requirements and strengthening programmatic capabilities. Environmental trainings include a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management Learning Pathway that provides a foundational overview through a seven-course video series that is complemented by detailed technical chapters with case studies.
