JOINT IMPACT INDICATORS

 

CLIMATE


J-12

GHG Emissions

Amount of GHG emissions emitted during the reporting period, measured in tons. Project-level emissions information provided by client can be used to calculate derivative indicators (e.g. emissions savings/reduction/avoidance) according to the most relevant methodology.

Unit: t(CO2e)

J-13

GHG Emissions Sequestration

Amount of GHG emissions sequestered during the reported period, measured in tons.

Unit: t(CO2e)

J-14

Water Consumption

Energy consumption measured in kilowatt-hours or megajoules of energy consumed during the reporting period. Distinguishing heat and electricity consumption is recommended. This indicator may be used to measure performance (e.g. kWh/m2 for a green building) or could be an absolute measure (e.g. before and after comparison).

Unit: m3(water)

J-15

Wastewater Treatment

Amount of wastewater treated to appropriate standards during the reporting period, measured in cubic meters. May also include the amount of untreated wastewater discharges avoided.

Unit: m3(wastewater)

J-16

Energy Consumption

Energy consumption measured in kilowatt-hours or megajoules of energy consumed during the reporting period. Distinguishing heat and electricity consumption is recommended. This indicator may be used to measure performance (e.g. kWh/m2 for a green building) or could be an absolute measure (e.g. before and after comparison).

Unit: kWh or MJ(energy)

J-17

Land Use

Hectares of land used during the reporting period. May be used to assess land use efficiency (e.g. MW/ha for reservoirs, i.e. megawatts of power produced per hectare of land used for water storage).

Unit: # ha(land)

J-18

Sustainable Management of Natural Resources

Hectares of land covered by sustainable land management practices, verified as being sustainable managed according to internationally recognized standards. Sustainable management of living natural resources includes both biodiversity and environmental services. Proxys of certification through an independent audit and verification process may be used to determine sustainable use. Distinct methodologies may need to be used for forestry, farmland, etc.

Unit: # ha(land meeting standards and/or certified)
