The Science, Business, and Education of Sustainable Infrastructure: Building Resilience in a Changing World

Symposium A7

Abstract: Since the mid-1990s, local governments have engaged in periodic inventories of municipal and community greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with the ultimate goal of achieving
emission reductions. The field has matured with documented protocols for performing and
reporting inventories, and many communities are now conducting inventory updates to
establish trends. The Cities Leading through Energy Analysis and Planning (C-LEAP) project
enhances the GHG inventory practice by creating methods and tools to attribute changes
between two inventories to the impacts of policies and programs along with other external
drivers, such as economic activity and weather. This framework will support policy-makers in
using data to better communicate about their progress and refine their policy approaches.
