Cities test new toolkit to improve quality of GHG emission inventories

A new C40 toolkit is now available to help cities improve the quality of community wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emission accounting and reporting. It aims to guide practitioners through the process of assessing whether their emission inventories have followed the requirements and principles of the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC), a best practice standard used by cities across the globe to measure and report GHG emissions in a comprehensive and consistent manner. 

Year in Review: C40’s 90 Member Cities Celebrate a Year of Milestones in Climate Action

2016 was a monumental year for C40, our member cities and our mayors. Not only did the Paris Agreement enter into force less than one year after COP21, but we also saw the number of C40 member cities grow to 90, representing more than 650 million citizens, and our Steering Committee unanimously elected the first-ever woman C40 Chair, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, to lead the organisation. Below, we look back at ten key moments that made 2016 a very productive and important year. 

Mayors Voices: Accra Mayor Alfred Vanderpuije on data-driven climate action planning

My city, Accra, is one of the cities in Africa that is impacted by climate change. We are continuously experiencing both floods and droughts, and this has sometimes resulted in the loss of life. That’s why we have made a strong commitment to addressing climate change in our city. I joined forces with global mayors and signed up to the Compact of Mayors (now the Global Covenant of Mayors on Climate and Energy) because I believe that cities like Accra have an important role to play in achieving the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) that Ghana has pledged to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

C40 and CDP Kick Off 2016 Reporting Cycle to Help Cities Measure and Manage Their Data

Beginning today, all C40 member cities are invited to report their climate data through our reporting partner CDP. The annual reporting cycle is designed to help cities report their data in a transparent way, and better track the impact of their climate actions. Reporting is also an important requirement for compliance with the Compact of Mayors. Within one year of committing to the Compact, a city must identify their climate risks, compile a city-wide greenhouse gas emission inventory according to the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC), and report their data. CDP is an official reporting platform for the Compact.
