The protocol is intended as a tool for cement companies worldwide. It provides a harmonized methodology for calculating CO2 emissions, with a view to reporting these emissions for various purposes. It addresses all direct and the main indirect sources of CO2 emissions related to the cement manufacturing process in absolute as well as specific or unit-based terms.
The protocol comprises two main elements: the guidance document, and an Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is designed as a practical tool to help cement companies prepare their CO2 inventories. The purpose of the guidance document is to explain the structure and rationale of the spreadsheet, and to provide calculation and reporting instructions.
