LEVEL 2

MODULE 1.3: GREENHOUSE GAS INVENTORIES

Improve monitoring and evaluation

Monitor your GHG emission reductions

  • It is important to have a monitoring methodology. How did you collect your data for emissions the first time? Can you easily collect the data again and look for possible reductions? Take a look at a list of available tools and initiatives.
  • Consider how to report usefully to your own council and community. This is important, as you need their support and buy-in to achieve a more ambitious level of GHG reductions. The basics are: do not be afraid of being open and frank about the results. If possible, use a system that is easily updated and web-based. As an extra report to the council, you can have a yearly report with extracted highlights from the GHG inventory tool.

    • As an example there is the Swedish system called “Miljöbarometern” (the Environment Barometer), a web-based monitoring systems that shows the status for different environmental key factors including GHG-emissions.

  • Share your results on a global scale in the carbonn Cities Climate Registry (cCCR) – the international reporting platform for local governments. Here you can regularly and publicly report on GHG reduction commitments, results of GHG emissions inventories and climate mitigation/adaptation actions.
  • Monitoring by stakeholders of their own actions is an additional element to consider.

    • Corporations and businesses can connect to more commercial and professional monitoring systems, also linked to standards for businesses.
