Panel discussion on green power with: Urban Buschmann (Frosta), Laura Palmeiro (Danone), Maureen Nowak (defra), Cynthia Cummis (WRI/ GHG protocol), Line Jensen (ECOHZ).

The replacement of fossil fuels by renewable energies is a commonly agreed and major measure for reducing GHG emissions. For diverse reasons, the accounting of supplier specific electricity from the grid (e.g. "green power") in carbon footprint assessments according to the established and emerging standards is not possible. However, practically supplier specific emission factors and "green power" are often included in carbon footprinting assessments and figures in one way or the other. In this session the issue of including lower emission "green power" in carbon footprinting and GHG inventories is raised from different perspectives. Statements from Summit participants are collected on Day 1 and are shown together with results from an online survey in the beginning of the session. A major European convenience food company will introduce the importance of finding a solution for adequate accounting of "green power" from their perspective. Standard setters and implementing programs are then asked to clarify and reflect on how they intend to address the use of supplier specific electricity and/or "green power" in standards and practical carbon footprint assessments in the future.
