The GHG Protocol represents a comprehensive global standardised framework for measuring and managing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It addresses private and public sector activities, value chains and mitigation actions.

The GHC Protocol works with governments, industry associations, NGOs, businesses and other organisations and builds on a 20-year partnership between the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

The GHG website offers online training on the standards and various tools. There is also the "Built on GHG Protocol" verification service, which labels industry guides, product rules and tools that are compliant with the GHG Protocol standards.
