This category is deprecated. The Greenhouse Gas Protocol methodologies for goods vehicle transport can now be found at the following:
This section covers all sub-categories relating to large goods transportation that use data from the World Resources Institute GHG_Protocol
. The data and calculation methodologies within these categories are based on distance-based emissions factors and therefore represented per vehicle
emissions. Should users wish to calculated emissions per unit of freight transported, they are referred to The Road freighting
Subcategories for GHGP large goods vehicle methodologies are organised by vehicle type ('heavy duty', 'light goods'), and geographic context ('US', 'other' (non-US/UK)) and include functionality for calculating biofuel emissions separately from those associated with fossil fuels.
See the appropriate subcategory documentation for specific details.
