No

A brief description of the methodology and/or tool used to complete the GHG emissions inventory:

Building consumption data is submitted annually to Ministry of Energy via webform and calculated as per GHG formula with Scope 1 emissions


Has the GHG emissions inventory been validated internally by personnel who are independent of the GHG accounting and reporting process and/or verified by an independent, external third party?:
Yes

A brief description of the internal and/or external verification process:

GHG data was entered by energy management specialists and then verified by energy manager.
