The leading online software platform for completing greenhouse gas inventories, forecasts, climate action plans, and monitoring at the community-wide or government-operations scales.
Streamline Your Emissions Management
Engineered for your full mitigation journey.
Create a baseline inventory of GHG emissions from your community, operations, or region
Produce business-as-usual scenarios based on custom factors
Plan using over 60 calculators modeling GHG reductions from specific actions
Track each action and the energy savings and emissions reductions achieved
Free with Membership
ICLEI members receive free access to ClearPath along with dedicated technical assistance and an in-depth library of ClearPath trainings.
Understand your starting Point
Create a baseline inventory of GHG emissions from your community and/or municipal operations.
This baseline helps you to understand where to prioritize emissions reductions and set a starting point to measure future progress
Track emissions direct and indirect from
Output community inventory results for
Explore and Prioritize Actions
Evaluate Future Scenarios
The forecast module produces a business-as-usual scenario (or multiple scenarios) and can account for federal, state and utility policies and plans that affect the carbon intensity of the electricity grid and fuel efficiency of vehicles
Identify Effective Strategies
In the planning module, more than 60 different calculators are available to model emissions reductions from specific actions such as bike paths or residential heat pumps.
Actions are then combined into a planning scenario that allows you to dynamically compare reductions from different combinations of actions against your goals.
Stay on track
Once you have developed a plan, use the monitoring module of ClearPath to track implementation status of each action, as well as to track energy savings and emissions reductions achieved. The monitoring reports will allow you to compare actual emissions from new inventories to your planning scenario, and to compare actual performance of actions to expected performance.
Receive Expert Support
ClearPath is built for ease of use, but as part of ICLEI membership, we provide technical support through in-depth training on each step of ClearPath’s setup and use.
Hear from ClearPath Users
"ICLEI has helped tremendously with San Antonio’s greenhouse gas inventories. The team consistently goes above and beyond to ensure that our staff understands the process at each step of the way, offering to write summaries, notate and keep track of changes, and attend meetings and briefings as needed. From transferring our 2016 data from CIRIS to ClearPath, to entering the raw data for 2019, and offering recommendations and best practices, the assistance that was provided to our city and community is truly invaluable."
“It’s a huge challenge to coordinate a regional climate action plan. Each jurisdiction has different goals and priorities, and we’ve had to make a lot of adjustments throughout the process. ICLEI and SEEC have a lot of great resources. I relied a lot on the protocols and ClearPath guides."
“Our ICLEI memberships have paid dividends far greater than the modest fees required. Beyond the rich library of research and tools to advance climate action, and the networking opportunities with like-minded counterparts in other municipalities; the technical assistance and expert guidance that we received from ICLEI allowed us to leverage internal resources to develop our first GHG inventories under the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Inventories. With our baseline inventories archived in ClearPath, we are now using it to crunch our data and identify the most impactful strategies to reduce and eliminate carbon emissions. I look forward to increasing our utilization of ICLEI’s expanding capabilities.”
“ICLEI membership provides tools for future research, data collection and planning activities. ICLEI’s resources are widely used as the standard for collecting greenhouse gas emissions data and [ClearPath is] a tool that both Clallam County and Jefferson County have used.”
"The new ClearPath web-based tool builds upon the accuracy and thoroughness of CACP, while improving reliability and the user experience. Since the program is web-based, my team no longer worries about software compatibility and can share inventory information in real-time. Delivering quality information to our local government partners is very important to us. ClearPath makes it easier than ever to share emissions information with our partners, and quickly tailor the data to their needs with the click of a mouse."
"The Sustainable Energy Committee provides an annual report to Town Meeting on actions and progress, including an emissions estimate. The ICLEI software for estimating emissions has been a critical and valuable tool for this reporting. It provides the ability to examine data from multiple perspectives by fuel source or by segment of the community. ICLEI has maintained consistency of measurement while making the software increasingly intuitive and easy to use."
"ICLEI's tools are one of a kind, as far as I can tell. Where else can you track data, calculate GHG emissions, and observe trends, all in one remotely maintained platform? I feel confident when I use the tools because ICLEI integrates the latest and greatest methodologies and emissions factors, a big job that is incredibly helpful and so needed in the context of increasingly complex GHG conversations at the local level. And of course, ICLEI always provides excellent and expert support. Thanks!"
"ClearPath has allowed the City of Monterey to inventory our emissions in a comprehensive, reliable way, employing both the Local Government Operations and U.S. Community Protocol. The built-in calculators and helpers in ClearPath make quick work of what can be a daunting set of conversions and equivalencies."
