Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories

One of the first steps a city takes toward protecting the environment from global warming and promoting environmental stewardship is to identify and account for the sources of emissions in its own backyard including municipal and communitywide emissions. The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) /South Bay Environmental Services Center (SBESC) completed greenhouse gas emissions inventories, for both government operations and communitywide activities, for the years 2005 and 2007 for each city in the South Bay. To develop the inventories, the SBCCOG worked collaboratively with member cities assisting staff with the collection and aggregation of data and using ICLEI’s Clean Air Climate Protection (CACP) software to quantify emissions.
