Consumption-Based GHG Accounting 2020 Training Cohort

Last updated January 20, 2020

Session Dates [TBC]: April 6 – October 31, 2020

Beginning in April 2020, ICLEI will host the “2020 Consumption Based Inventory Cohort”, a structured technical assistance program to guide local governments through the steps of creating a consumption based greenhouse gas inventory in real time. The Training Session is available to ICLEI USA members at no additional cost.

The 25-week Session will run from April through October, when ICLEI USA experts will assist up to 10 cities to create a consumption-based GHG inventory following either the U.S. Community Protocol (USCP) or procdures in line with those required by Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy’s Common Reporting Framework. 

By the end of the program, participants will have conducted a consumption-based GHG inventory to better influence GHG reduction measures for their community.

Contact your ICLEI Technical Advisor or email iclei-usa@iclei.org for details.

What assistance will you get?

Program participants will have exclusive access to the following resources:

  • Live, 1-hour web-based presentations
  • Peer exchange and learning
  • One-on-one assistance with inventorying

Trainings will be every two weeks and recorded sessions and resources will be made available to all. Session materials will support participants in conducting a consumption based GHG inventory. 

Who should participate?

Any ICLEI USA member city, town, county, or regional affiliate is eligible to participate. Priority will be given to local governments that have already completed a conventional GHG inventory.

Local governments working with interns are also welcome to apply.
The 2020 Consumption-Based Inventory Cohort will run from April through October 2020. Applications to join are due by Friday, March 13th.
