Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Inventories
Cities are the global centers of communication, commerce and culture. They are also a significant, and growing, source of energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A city’s ability to take effective action on mitigating climate change, and monitor progress, depends on having access to good quality data. Planning for climate action begins with developing a GHG inventory.
An inventory enables cities to understand the emissions contribution of different activities in the community.
