Press Release: International Partners Release Pilot Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions

C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, together with international partners, are launching a pilot version of the Global Protocol for Community-scale Greenhouse Gas Emissions (also called the “community protocol”). This landmark effort represents a significant step forward in harmonizing emissions measurement and reporting processes for cities of all sizes and geographies: the community protocol will be piloted in selected cities to establish a single minimum global standard for community‐scale greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measurement. A transparent, consistent and common approach provides cities with a much‐needed tool for effective climate action planning and financing.
