New Tool for Carbon Accounting in Cities and Counties
ICLEI–Local Governments for Sustainability USA (ICLEI) calls its “U.S. Community Protocol for Accounting and Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions” the first national standard for cities and counties to determine which activities are most responsible for GHG emissions, including use of electricity and fuel, water treatment, and generation of solid waste. Governments can then determine emission reduction targets and strategies as well as compare data with other communities’ and track reduction progress.
ICLEI is currently developing related Web-based software for release next year. For more information, see.
