Has the institution conducted a GHG emissions inventory within the previous three years that includes all Scope 1 and 2 emissions? :
Yes

A copy of the most recent GHG emissions inventory:
A brief description of the methodology and/or tool used to complete the GHG emissions inventory:
A certified company was hired to verify the sources of greenhouse gases and greenhouse gas inventory based on ISO 14064-3:2006.
*Types of GHGs included: CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCS, PFCS, SF6, NF3
*The IPCC 2013 AR5 GWP values are applied in this inventory.
*Electricity emission factor: 0.533 kgCOze/kwh
(Announced by Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs in 2019)
*GHG information for the following period was verified: 01 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.

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 GHG inventory verification process:
1: Holding an education and training workshop on GHG inventory.
2: Establishing a GHG gas inventory team and clarifying the boundary of the GHG emission inventory.
3: Identifying the GHG emission sources, and establishing the tools for GHG emission inventory.
4: Establishing a mechanism for data quality assurance.
5: Establishing procedural documents.
