Task Force on GHG Methodologies 

Ethanol distillery in Brazil

The GBEP Task Force on GHG Methodologies was established in October 2007 under the joint leadership of the United States and the UN Foundation to develop a common methodological framework for the use of policy makers and stakeholders when assessing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with bioenergy and to make GHG lifecycle analyses more transparent.

In June 2009, the Task Force published a Common Methodological Framework for GHG Lifecycle Analysis of Bioenergy  –Version Zero for initial dissemination and testing. The “Version One” of the framework was released on January 2011.
