This Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory Management Plan (IMP) provides a detailed foundation for the World Bank Group’s (WBG) comprehensive effort to measure and manage greenhouse gas emissions from its internal global business operations. The IMP does not apply to the lending or technical assistance activities that the World Bank Group provides to its public and private sector clients. This document provides organization-wide information, including corporate overview and goals, boundary conditions of the inventory, emissions quantification methods, data management methods, base year selection discussion, list of management tools, and auditing and verification processes. The World Bank Group consists of five closely associated institutions operating in over 180 countries and owned by member countries that carry ultimate decision-making power. Each institution plays a distinct role in the mission to fight poverty and improve living standards for people in the developing world. The IMP sets forth the current scope and vision of WBG’s commitment to inventory and manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for its internal global business operations and contains the WBG’s greenhouse gas inventory methodology. It sets forth the WBG’s intention to create a GHG inventory that is consistent with the principles and guidance of the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative (GHG Protocol) for its internal corporate GHG accounting and reporting. The inventory methodology is designed to meet the most rigorous and complete accounting and reporting standards.
