SBC helps Metro with the carbon reporting for the Monorail Removal Project

GHG inventory Monorail demolition

Sustainable Business Consulting has been engaged by Metropolitan Demolitions and Aver to perform the carbon reporting for the Monorail Removal Project, which started in August 2013.

The client Transport for NSW (TfNSW) mandates that all projects with a value exceeding $5m have to submit a GHG inventory report. In August 2013 we submitted the initial report, which covers the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the project per emission source (e.g. cranes, EWPs, diesel generators, compactors, trucks, staff commute, embodied emissions in materials, waste, etc.), and carbon savings that are targeted. The carbon report not only contains scope 1 and scope 2 emission sources, but an extensive set of scope 3 emission sources, which gives a complete picture of the greenhouse gas emissions that are being caused by this project.

The report adheres to the following standards and guidelines:

  • TfNSW Greenhouse Gas Inventory Guide for Construction Projects
  • The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (GHG Protocol)
  • ISO 14040:2006
  • ISO 14044:2006
  • GHG Protocol: Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard
  • GHG Protocol: Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard

After the project is complete, a final report will be issued, which tracks the actual activity against the projected data and measures whether the sustainability objectives and targets have been met through the use of defined greenhouse gas indicators.
