The Framework for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Planning: Industrial Portfolios articulates a process to help industrial organizations develop a specific, actionable plan to achieve Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction – an Emissions Reduction Plan (ERP). An ERP covers an entire portfolio of facilities, yet contains enough detail to be practically useful at the facility level.
Organizations may find many benefits to developing an ERP. An ERP translates targets into action and ensures members of an organization at all levels understand the resources needed to achieve goals.
The Framework guides organizations through five milestones to developing an ERP. It also provides guidance on how to plan for effective, ongoing implementation of the plan. This preview describes each milestone, why it is included in the Framework, and how each milestone proceeds to the next one to fully define a successful, implementable ERP.
