Green gas certificates recognised under the GHG protocol

02 October 2016

Changes to greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting regulations means that the use of biomethane, also known as green gas, now allows for near-zero GHG emission reporting. 

Green Gas Certificates are now recognised under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) protocol which offers food and drink companies an opportunity to reduce their reported carbon emissions by using green gas from the gas grid, backed by Green Gas Certificates.
Green Gas Certificates are linked to the production of grid-injected biomethane. This ensures that biomethane drawn from the gas grid can be tracked back to the biomethane producer.  Tim Davis, managing director of Barrow Green Gas, explains: “If companies want to reduce carbon emissions, they can do so very simply by switching from natural gas to green gas.  Now that green gas certificates have been officially recognised, companies using green gas can report near-zero GHG emission for gas used onsite.
“With public disclosure and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions becoming standard practice in industry this will be a valuable option for companies looking to demonstrate their commitment to operating sustainably.”
