ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability and C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group released today a draft edition of the Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions (community protocol) to help cities around the world measure and report GHG emissions using a more consistent protocol.
In response to the global need for consistency when measuring and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, a group of organizations have partnered to develop a Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions (community protocol). Its release today marks a major milestone in the year-long partnership between C40 and ICLEI on this effort, which includes collaboration with the World Bank Group, UN-HABITAT, United Nations Environment Programme, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the World Resources Institute (WRI). As we enter into the public comment period, C40 and ICLEI encourage all cities to provide input on the community protocol and register for upcoming explanatory webinars.
The full document and accompanying fact sheet are now available for review. Comments on the full document should be submitted through the feedback form template by the closing date of the comment period on April 20, 2012. Feedback should be sent directly to GPC@C40.com and GPC@iclei.org.
C40 and ICLEI will be hosting public webinars, with dedicated outreach to C40 and ICLEI member cities, on Tuesday April 3rd, 2012 from 7:00am – 8:00am UTC (GMT) and Wednesday April 4, 2012 from 3:00pm – 4:00pm UTC (GMT).
