Community Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory & Forecast Cohort

Join this cohort to conduct a Community-wide Greenhouse Gas inventory (GHGI).  This structured technical assistance program guides local governments through the steps of creating a GHGI, targets, and forecasts in ICLEI’s ClearPath emissions management software application. The Training Session is available to ICLEI Members at no cost.

At the conclusion of the program, participants will have conducted a GHGI and forecast of future emissions along with potential targets to reduce emissions and provide a basis for a Climate Action Plan.  

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 communitywide GHG inventory.
