Guide: quantifying GHG reductionsAccurately quantifying and reporting on energy savings and emissions reductions from your municipality’s climate change initiatives helps you celebrate successes and refine your efforts to ensure you meet your targets. It lets you show expected or concrete results to stakeholders to help build support and funding for future projects. However, many municipalities struggle with the calculations required for this kind of reporting.

The Quantifying greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions at the project level guide, developed by the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program, explains what you need to know to quantify energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions from climate change and energy efficiency projects, policies and programs.

Designed for municipal staff tasked with measuring GHG or energy reductions at the project level, this guide will help you:

  • Find out how to calculate GHG emissions
  • Learn to quantify reductions at the project level
  • See detailed examples applied to different types of projects  
  • Gain insight into the challenges of the process and find tips to overcome them
  • Connect with resources for further reading

Read the guide.
