The article deals with the problem of global warming. The aim of this research is to improve the methodological tools of quantifying greenhouse gas emissions. The urgency of the task of mitigating anthropogenic climate change caused by rising concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is proven. Statistical data on emissions for the past 15 years are analyzed, change trends are identified. The authors establish the cause of the growth in greenhouse gas emissions, the energy sector being the main contributor. A description of the mechanism of the effect of greenhouse gases on the climate system is provided. The requirements set by international agreements and Russian documents aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions are unified. The main gases that cause the greenhouse effect are identified, their classification and brief characteristics are provided in the article. The necessity to promote the monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions and reporting system at the global level is substantiated. The purpose of the advanced metering system is to obtain relevant and reliable data for timely response to and planned reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The article analyses guidelines on quantifying the greenhouse gas emissions of the organizations approved by the Ministry of Nature of Russia in terms of their applicability at the corporate level in the energy sector. The authors propose measures for improving the guidelines and instructions of Russia, based on the analysis of international experience in building guidelines for greenhouse gas inventories of the IPCC. The obtained results may be of interest to companies of the energy sector that want to design corporate guidelines for the quantification of greenhouse gas emissions. Further research in this area may yield more profound results that should be used for the assessment and prediction of greenhouse gas emissions, not only at the corporate level, but also nationally.
