International Local Government GHG Emissions Analysis Protocol

July 9, 2008

Since November 2007, ICLEI has been working with many organizations including the UN Environmental Program, the International Energy Agency, FCM and ICLE cities and stakeholders, to develop an easily implemented set of guidelines to assist local governments in quantifying GHG emissions from their internal operations and from their community as a whole.

The document consists of the general principles and philosophies that any local government, regardless of location, should adhere to when doing a GHG inventory. Release Version 1.0 of the Protocol is now available and ICLEI is welcoming any comments and feedback. Click here for more information about the Protocol and to download it.
